Sutton Grange Winery prides itself on producing quality wines in the Bendigo region. With a focus on biodynamics and minimal intervention in the vineyard we trust you taste the difference in the bottle!

 

Sutton Grange Winery is located on the southern edge of the Bendigo region, and for many years was known for its thoroughbred racing facility but since planting of the vineyards in 1998 it is now recognised for the wines it produces. The wines are traditionally handcrafted by winemaker Melanie Chester.
