D’Angelo Estate Vineyard originated in Montrose, Yarra Valley, in 1994 when Domenico D’Angelo started planting Pinot Noir grapes for himself. By 1997 the Pinot Noir grapes were ready to be harvested for the very first vintage. From the small amount of grapes that were harvested, Benny D’Angelo made the first batch of wine, two barrels in total.
D’Angelo Estate Vineyard comprises of two vineyards, one in Officer and the other in Montrose, Victoria. The D’Angelo Estate Vineyard at Officer is located on the North Side of Princes Highway on the outskirt of Berwick, just 45 minutes south east of Melbourne. The topography of Officer makes an excellent site for growing cool climate varietals such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Shiraz and Viognier, which is ideal for bringing out the complex flavours of all these grapes. From the Yarra Valley Vineyard, D’Angelo Estate produces Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. Both of these vineyards are family owned and are maintained by the D’Angelo family. Benny also produces Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from a premium low cropping vineyard in Langhorne Creek (S.A).
