A favourite for Rachelle and I, we always enjoy a bottle of Redman wine…tonight a 2007 Shiraz from the South Australian region, Coonawarra; one we’ve visited three times and counting.
Best in some large crystal glasses
In 1989, Kel Boynton established a family owned winery in the beautiful town of Porepunkah, in Victoria’s Alpine Region. The winery is now aptly named “Feathertop” after the nearby mountain which is a commanding feature in this Alpine region. Mt Feathertop has been attributed to sheltering the valley and influencing the air currents in the region. It also has had an impact on the rich soil structure in which the grapes are grown, as well as providing fresh Alpine spring water for the vineyard.
“Like all great success stories, the story of the birth of Boynton’s Feathertop Winery is filled with passion, adventure, disappointment and fear but above all strength, determination and an individuals belief in his dream despite the odds.”
“Feathertop Wines captures the essences of nature and the beauty and crispness of the Alpine Valleys which surround the wine” (from the Feathertop Wines website)
Kel & Janelle Boynton have a Wine Club called “Summit Cru” which I am a member of. Each quarter I receive a dozen of Kel’s selected wines ~ which I always look forward to!
Below are a few photos I’ve taken from autumn and summer at Feathertop. I have the first autumn photo “Bright Red Path” printed on extra large canvas in my lounge room, which I love.
The last photo in the set I named “Feathertop” and is one of my favourites as the wispy clouds look like feathers above the “Feathertop” vineyard.
Feathertop Wines is located at 6619 Great Alpine Road, Porpunkah, VIC. If you are in the area, make sure you stop in to the cellar door and try their wonderful wines.
