Savour the wines of the Smedley family at Yarra Valley
Last month I drove through the Yarra Valley—an area east of Melbourne. It’s one of the best known regions of Victoria not just for its beauty but for its amazing wineries and other specialities.
Mandala Wines is a smaller scale winery in the area, but it doesn’t lack anything in what it has to offer the consumer. It has been producing proudly crafted wines of character and finesse since 1999. It was established by the Smedley family, and has two sites under vine: one at Dixons Creek, where the Cellar Door complex and glasshouse DiVino Ristorante is based, and the other at Yarra Junction.
Both sites produce wine varietals that excel in the region; Dixons Creek is home to a mix of classic varieties, while the Yarra Junction vineyard was carefully selected for premium pinot noir production.
Mandala Wines merges the qualities that make up the balance of ‘the good life’—the love of family, food and wine; the best recipe for embracing and savouring life.
Does the Yarra Valley get any better?
