A new era for Yarra Valley wine pioneer St Huberts

St Huberts Wines Yarra Valley

Historic Yarra Valley winery St Huberts has recently had a relaunch.

There’s some exciting new wine styles, and a long overdue packaging overhaul.

And what was previously a very basic cellar door – in a building affectionately known as ‘the toilet block’ – has been completely redeveloped.

St Huberts’ owner Treasury Wine Estates partnered with Ryan Hospitality Group to create its new home comprising a Modern Australian and European-inspired restaurant called Quarters, the Hubert Gallery of Art – which showcases works by Indigenous artists – and of course the revamped St Hubert’s Cellar Door.

St Huberts chief winemaker Greg Jarratt joins us on the Drinks Adventures podcast to discuss these exciting changes, and its latest crop of wines including some serious expressions of the regional flagships, pinot noir and chardonnay.

There’s also some lesser seen varieties – pinot blanc and pinot meunier ­– and a stellar blanc de noirs sparkling rose from the 2015 vintage.

This is a special episode of Drinks Adventures, produced in partnership with St Huberts.

I must confess to not knowing a huge amount about the winery’s back story.

So first up, I asked Greg for a potted history, and some insight on what makes St Huberts’ wine style unique.
