The 2019 growing season definitely had its challenges: a warm, wet spring causing huge disease pressure; a very warm and dry December / early January pushing fast growth and ripening; and a severe lack of pickers were among just a few.

On reflection it feels like luck was on our side. A cool cycle in late January / early February, coupled with good crop levels and leaf area seemed to save us, as ripening stalled and classic Yarra flavours were retained.

At the end of February we saw another major heat spike that made the forests surrounding the Yarra a tinderbox. Bush fires seemed inevitable and on the 1st of March a large fire developed in the hills to the south.

Fortunately all of our white grapes were off the vine and the reds were ready to go. Strong winds from the North were pushing the smoke haze further away from our vineyards which gave us a precious 4 day window to harvest like mad and get our fruit safely into the winery in great condition. Surprisingly the flavours from 2019 are very subtle and fresh and the acids amazing. It feels like the vines age and adaptability have really come into play this vintage.

Meet the Dealers

We’re Antoinette, Natasha, Matt and Simon. We’re good booze lovers just like you. We started our beery journey in 2013 when we opened the famous Brewski on Brisbane’s infamous Caxton Street. In 2018 we opened our first My Beer Dealer under Brewski, it’s one of the few drink-in bottle shops in Queensland and we’re super chuffed with it. 2020 was a big year for us, we launched our online store (you’re looking at it) and opened our second bricks ‘n mortar shop next to Eagle Junction station in Brisbane’s Clayfield (we’re super chuffed with it as well). Both of these have allowed us to complement our awesome beer range with our other passions of good wine and good spirits.

As we’re a small family run business we prefer to support other family businesses and small producers, ensuring that when you visit us it’s not the same old, same old. And by shopping with us we hope you get to feel good about supporting a whole heap of small businesses, just like we do. So if you do choose to buy through us, thank you from us and thank you from our family of suppliers (and thanks for reading this far, our copywriter is stoked).
