Owen Latta grew up on his parents vineyard and has been making wine at the Eastern Peake property since he was 15 years old, sometimes punching down barrels before hopping on the school bus. After finishing school and studying wine science in Geelong, whilst learning a thing or two at various vineyards in Europe and Australia, he returned home to take over from his parents. We’ve been enjoying his wines ever since.

 

A yearly favourite that captures wine drinkers year after year. Experimental batches change the make up every year but it is consitenyl fun, funky and delicious.

This year the big hitter is Syrah from the Saddle Back vineyard grown organically by Cory Hope in the Pyrenees harvested once flavour hits the full ripeness required, Sangiovese component is grown by the Camfield’s in Moonambel Pyrenees, Nebbiolo grown by the John Family in Landsborough Pyrenees & finally Pinot Noir grown by us at home base in Coghills Creek.

All batches are whole bunch pressed, fermented on full solids & left to rest on lees for 11 months. Blended & bottled by Owen whenever he says it’s ready.
