Feathertop Winery Red Wine Experiencia for 2 people
Time & Location
About the Event
In a world where we can’t come to you and you can’t come to us, our winemaker, Nick Toy will walk you through his top 3 red wines, provide tasting notes and make sure you walk away wowed by the delicious red wines he has made for you. Feathertop Winery vineyard was established in 1988 by Kel Boynton with a belief in that the Alpine Valleys provided the ideal terroir and climate to experiment and grow a variety of different grapes.
Feathertop Winery has suffered the bushfires and now Covid. Life has not been normal for many businesses in this region for well over 10 months.

Feathertop Winery is a stunning winery nestled away amongst hills of Mt Buffalo National Park (on Great Alpine Road). The 5 star castle like accommdation is not just a great stopping point for snow lovers, avid bike riders and Victorian adventurers, it is a place where you can truly escape, unwind and energise in an unpretentious, relaxed atmosphere.
The winery has an extensive 22 varieties of wine *mind blown*.
The site was an old horse paddock overgrown with blackberries, but immediately the potential was seen, not just for growing grapes, but for its appeal as a tourism destination, a place where people could relax in an unpretentious atmosphere and discover the elegance of hand crafted cool climate wines. It is a site blessed with incredible natural beauty – it overlooks the alpine peaks of Mt Buffalo, is surrounded by native forests, rolling hills and located on the Murray To Mountains Rail Trail.
With determination and a list of 30 varietals the winery opened up its cellar door in 1989. It was the first winery in the Alpine Valleys. Kel retired in Jan 2019, Nick Toy is our chief winemaker.
Feathertop is synonymous with its passion for developing alternate varietals. Savagnin, Tempranillo and Vermentino to name a few, have all found their spiritual home in the Alpine Valleys. But you can also expect award winning traditional varieties like Shiraz, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Prosecco and a selection of fortified wines.
Currently due to COVID19 and a loss of our 2020 Vintage due to bushfires, this year we are closed to the public and only open by appointment.
