It is known that ‘great wine is made in the vineyard’ and we set out to select an exact location that delivered every advantage of a cool climate, undulating topography and ancient soils. So we found our hidden gem, located down a county lane in the dress circle Warramate foothills of the Yarra Valley. It is from here we set out to make wine with the charm of Northern Italy but the provenance of the majestic Yarra Valley.

Discover Soumah Wines

The Yarra Valley cool climate focus allows Soumah to specialise in wine styles and varieties typical to Northern Italy as well as South Eastern France. Our Hexham vineyard on the Warramate Foothills is the main stay of production although we do look for small parcels of premium fruit from other vineyards to bring additional Single Vineyard wines to the market. Our most awarded wines are Chardonnay and Pinot Noir although we are also gaining good recognition for Viognier and Syrah. Then onto a passion for Northern Italian varieties with our Nebbiolo, Brachetto, Pinot Grigio and Savarro (Savagnin).


Soumah is proudly a 5-Star Winery according to Halliday Wine Companion.

Summer at Soumah!

Come and celebrate Summer at Soumah in the Yarra Valley! With sweeping views across our vineyard and a wide selection of interesting varietals, there is no better time to visit us in cellar door and taste through our range of wines. You can’t go past our new release 2018 Ai Fiori rosato – made from Cabernet and Nebbiolo grapes, it is ideal for sharing over an antipasti plate with friends in the sunshine.


Our Trattoria has a new menu featuring dishes suited to the warmer weather and the produce available from our kitchen garden. Think wood fired prawns with gremolata butter or orecchiette with zucchini, asparagus and pesto. Share a wood roasted cauliflower and truffle pecorino pizza to start, matched perfectly to our 2016 Hexham Pinot Noir. Savour the taste of our slow braised lamb in Syrah. Finish lunch with a vanilla and honey panacotta and a glass of our sweet 2017 Brachetto.

Family owned and operated by Brett Butcher, Soumah first produced wine in 2010. Two years later a rustic, charming cellar door was built, made from material sourced from the old stables on the property. Four wines initially on offer – 2010 Savarro, 2010 Chardonnay, 2010 Shiraz and 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon were chosen for their style and quality. Over the past seven years the vineyard has grown to four white varietals and five red varietals with a total of 22 different wines within the Soumah brand. The original cellar door has now expanded to include a highly regarded restaurant and premium tasting room, along with a see through museum room and accommodation available next door at the homestead. We look forward to seeing you!

Where: Soumah Cellar Door and Trattoria, 18 Hexham Road, Gruyere
