Welcome to John and Simon Denton’s Vineyard. Our vineyard, located in the Yarra Valley, is on a fabulous site with great aspect for grapes grapegrowing and with wonderful views of the whole valley. View Hill is an isolated hill in the middle of the Yarra Valley on the north side of the Yarra River. It exists because it is a granite ‘plug’ from the late Devonian Age (370 million years ago), sitting above the surrounding softer sandstones and siltstones of the Valley.
Set on 60 hectares of land (150 acres) the vineyard covers 32 hectares (80 acres) planted in three stages between 1997 and 2004. From our hilltop we can see most valley vineyards from Ronnie Di Stasios’ high on the hills to the south-east, to Mount Mary to the south-west and De Bortoli to the north and all of our neighbours in between – Tarrawarra, Oakridge, Domain Chandon, Yarra Yering, Coldstream Hills, Medhurst, Giant Steps and many others.
We have been selling our wine into Restaurants and better Wine Merchants for a while now so you can find our wines from time to time on lists at Vue du Monde, Coda + Tonka, Comme, Taxi, Longrain, Maha, Movida, Healesville Hotel and others and of course Izakaya Den and Hihou, as well as selected specialist liquor stores like Rathdowne Cellars.
