  • Our team getting stuck into the Burleigh Pie pairing competition! Any excuse really!? 🥧 🍷 

Each year The Burleigh Gourmet Pies challenge Marlburnian wineries to find the perfect pairing between fabulous local wines and legendary Burleigh pies. Each winery will submit their perfect pairing (wine & pie) which goes to a panel of expert judges and all money raised from this outstanding challenge goes towards local charities. Fingers crossed! 🤞

  • Our Winemaker and Viticulturist, Hamish Clark led a group of keen staff to visit a nearby estate vineyard to demonstrate the Saint Clair way of pruning vineyards. A great education session to learn about the pruning process and the importance for not only the current year, but the year ahead for the vine yield and fruit quality. Hamish described it as one of the most important tasks of the year. ***Tap our bio to learn more about the Saint Clair way***
