Pass through the threshold of our cellar door. Look around at the stacks of wine barrels, the way the light plays off the dove grey surface of the straw bale walls. The atmosphere is calm and welcoming. Our focus here at Stanners Vineyard is the wine. You can come in and relax, take your ease, taste some wine, chat for a bit. If you’d like to, we can show you around the winery, look at all the interesting equipment, tell you stories of growing grapes and of harvest. Bring a picnic, bring your family. Come share in our enjoyment of wine!

Our Winemaker, Colin Stanners, is a pretty quiet guy, a still waters run deep type, with neither pretense nor ego in evidence. You could say his wines are an extension of his personality so as you might expect, he has consistently honed his wine making techniques to attain exceptional wines. Keenly dedicated to allowing the grapes to express their terroir, Colin is making complex, polished wines with varietal bouquets and a sense of purity. As a true artisan of winemaking, he exhibits patience and focus, enabling the almost mystical alchemy of winemaking to takes its own course.
