Centennial Vineyards is about cool climate grape growing and winemaking. The vines ripen with lower temperatures than most Australian wine regions. Because the climate is colder, vines ripen the fruit much more slowly and evenly than in warm regions, producing balanced, aromatic fruit.
All wines are crafted on site in the state-of-the-art winery, allowing the production of quality cool-climate wines, with maximum aroma and flavour and presented at their optimum bottle age.
Centennial Vineyards specialise in single vineyard, cool climate wines, planted over 80 acres, including: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Verdelho, Pinot Gris, Albarino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Tempranilo, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Late Harvest Semillon and Methode Champenoise.
Centennial Vineyards invites you to visit and experience the charm and warmth of the Cellar Door whilst tasting the fine wines.

Checkin & Checkout
Julie is a fantastic host. Very accommodating and we had everything we needed for our stay. A quiet oasis. Thank you
Julie was very accommodating and friendly and she even drove us into town for a festival! The place was much bigger than expected and had all the amenities and was very clean, and most importantly warm on a cold night! We will definitely come back in the warmer months to appreciate the lovely backyard 🙂
Fantastic spacious home, wonderfully friendly host- so accommodating. The welcome pack when we arrived was so unexpected and very generous. We plan to return to this lovely property.
