Dirty Three Wines
This vineyard in Gippsland specialises in pinot noir and the three 'dirts' the vines grow in.
Winemakers Marcus Satchell and Lisa Sartori are passionate about patches of dirt, and more specifically the dirt in their three vineyards — Berrys Creek, Tilson and Holgates Road. That's where they grow pinot noir grapes which they use to create bottles of All the Dirts Pinot Noir, as well as their single-dirt pinots.
The vineyard is located in Inverloch, Gippsland, and the husband-and-wife team focuses on (if you haven't guessed) making really good pinot noir, but you can also buy rosé, riesling and chardonnay, made from grapes also planted in 'all the dirts'.
In the centre of town is the urban Tasting Room (D3HQ), where you can sample Dirty Three's wines alongside local cheeses or charcuterie. If you're travelling in a group, it's recommended to book head for tastings, and you can also arrange catering for special events. In the summer months, the urban cellar door is open daily.
