Yering Station was established in 1838 by the pioneering Ryrie brothers who adopted the Aboriginal name “Yering” for their new station. In 1996 the Rathbone family purchased the property drawn to its natural beauty, history and the great promise of its wines. As lovers of wine, the Rathbone family had contemplated the idea of becoming wine producers for many years. Having planted the Laura Barnes Vineyard in 1995 and with the family’s background in agriculture, manufacturing and their passion for the wine industry, the purchase of Yering Station was an obvious step forward. This natural progression coupled with a combination of family talents allowed them to develop a successful business around quality wine. Today Yering Station is one of the jewels of the Yarra Valley region, attracting tourists and wine enthusiasts from around the globe.
"As each year brings unpredictability and difference, the vineyard team works around the clock with seasonal environmental conditions to ensure every vintage potential is optimised and that the fruit is a true expression of the season or vintage." Andy Clarke - Yering Station, Chief Viticulturalist
