GREAT WINE IS MADE IN THE VINEYARD

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.

Savarro Saluto Masterclass

Savarro, more commonly known as Savagnin, is one of the ‘Mothers of all grapes.’ It was first recorded in the 10th century in the town of Tramin in North Eastern Italy. It travelled around Europe for centuries picking up different names in different regions. It then went on to ‘mother’ many of today’s modern varieties like Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc and Gruner Veltliner, to name a few. Not commonly grown in Australia, our Masterclass will expose you to the history and the growing conditions required to perfect this unique variety.

 

For our Savarro Saluto, you will taste eight samples. Some grown in our Hexham vineyard, including a tank sample from 2019, a pre-release look at 2018 as well as stock from our museum selection. We have also selected wines from European regions that specialise in the variety, specifically the Valais in Switzerland and Jura in France, and the quite rare and interesting Vin Jaune or ‘Yellow Wine’. Vin Jaune is aged for six years and three months in barrels that are not topped up — one of the most interesting and unusual wines you will ever try.

 

Tasting will be accompanied by cheeses also from these regions as well as cured meats, all specially selected by chef Paul

 

When: Session 1 at 3:00p.m. on Saturday 30th March, or Session 2 at 3:00p.m. on Sunday 31st March
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour
Cost: $30 per person, includes tasting of eight wines accompanied by specialty cheeses and cured meats
