Yering Farm Wines’ Rich History

The 30-acre vineyard of Yering Farm Wines is located along the main tourist route in the Yarra Valley, on the same site where Yeringa Vineyards was once situated in the 1890s. Alan Johns, chief winemaker of Yering, didn’t plant new vines until 1989. This was the beginning of a new age in winemaking.


Early on, grapes from Yering Vineyard were sold to other wineries, and only a small amount was reserved for John’s winemaking.

Our Pink Lady Apple Syder has a unique taste. Our Pink Lady Apple Syder is made from home-grown apples, and the juice is fermented in barrels of Pinot Noir wine. The result? A gorgeous pink blush. For about four years, we have been selling this mainly through the cellar door.
