Open by appointment only:

Our beautiful cellar door welcomes visitors Friday to Sunday by appointment, for a choice of two intriguing wine experience programs.
We don’t offer standard wine tastings, but rather a more in-depth wine encounter that is both fun and fascinating. Both programs include tastings of our Strange Bird wines of course.
Choose from the one-hour Curious Wine Encounter (cost $10pp) or the two-hour Wine Decoded ($45pp) – this one includes a black glass tasting that might surprise you.
Our cellar door is usually closed from November through to the end of May, however we do sometimes make exceptions, so do contact us if you would like to visit during this period.
Inner Circle members are welcome all year round by appointment.
To reserve your wine experience call Cheryl on 0419 723 755

Q Our Story

“Our passion is to produce memorable, remarkable wines and to provide an unparalleled cellar door and vineyard experience.”
(Brad & Cheryl Hutchings, owners of Savina Lane Wines).

Vines have been grown at Savina Lane for more than 50 years. Now the baton of stewardship has been passed to us. We take our role as custodians of this lovely little slice of the Granite Belt seriously – protecting and nourishing it and rehabilitating where necessary, so that life in all its forms will continue to flourish here long after we have gone.

We strive to achieve good eco-credentials: designing our facilities to avoid the need for air conditioning, spraying only natural compounds wherever possible (and at an hour when our tiny ladybirds are not busy enjoying their breakfast – these little predators are a wonderful natural way of controlling pests in the vineyard). We also use only organic fertilizers.

Both of us had successful business careers before coming to Savina Lane – (Brad in horticulture, agri-business, marketing and project development and Cheryl as a writer and Creative Director in the advertising industry) – so we knew the best way to achieve our aim of producing premium wines from the quality fruit we work hard to grow, was to seek expert advice. This we found in abundance from renowned winemaker Mike Hayes, who as well as being a Churchill Fellow, an Adjunct Professor at USQ and multi-award-winning winemaker, also has a lifetime of experience in viticulture.

Q Our Strange Birds

We specialise in alternative varieties - known on the Granite Belt as "Strange Bird". We currently produce, Fiano, Viognier, Tempranillo, Graciano and Shiraz.

Q Our New Cellar Door

Our beautiful new cellar door is now open. The elegant tasting room is furnished with designer leather lounges and thick hand-knotted oriental rugs. Visitors can choose to taste our medal-winning alternative varieties in front of a log fire, in the sunshine on the terrace overlooking the vines or seated on comfortable stools in front of the long iron-bark bar. There is a wine accessories boutique with a comprehensive range of intriguing and useful items to enhance your wine experience. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy a stroll through the vineyard where interpretive panels on each variety give fascinating details about each vine type. Our cellar door is open Wednesday to Saturday and most public holiday weekends from 10am to 5pm. Other times by appointment.
