QAbout Sancerre Estate
The estate was originally established by Peter and Anne Smith and was known as Smiths Vineyard.
Initially planting the vineyards took place in the late 1980’s. The Bed & Breakfast was then built and opened in 1993, followed by Shiraz Cottage in 1997. In 2013 Peter and Anne retired to Stanthorpe and sold the property to Brad and Stacey Allan.
Brad and Stacey had been planning for several years to purchase their own winery or accommodation establishment. In 2012 they travelled Europe looking for inspiration and ideas. Along their travels they were lucky enough to learn of a friend of a family friend who runs a winery south of Paris in the small hilltop village of Sancerre, in which they thoroughly enjoyed their visit and inspiring the name Sancerre Estate.
Estate Grown View Wines straight from our Vineyard
Our small 10 acre vineyard was first planted in the late 1980’s with Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Merlot. In 2015 we made the decision to take out the Chardonnay block which gave us the opportunity to plant 2 new Strangebird Varieties – Petit Manseng and Alvarinho.
The vineyard is hand pruned and all of the grapes are handpicked. We have low yields of 2 tonnes per acre which gives us premium fruit. As growers we like to say we ‘Grow the Wine!’
We hope you enjoy the View at Sancerre Estate
