Welcome to Derwent Estate Wines

PanoramaThe historic 'Mt Nassau" property has been in my family since 1913. We planted our first vines 23 years ago. 
In 2013 we decided we buillt an on-site winery. We are now reaping the rewards of these decisions.
As the 2016 vintage draws to a close - we hope you can share the journey with us!
