Ravensworth Wines


Ravensworth began its journey in 2001 under the pretext that ‘It seemed like a good idea at the time’ a family affair these days with partners Bryan and Jocelyn Martin teaming up with Bryan’s brother David Martin.

Bryan makes the wine at the Clonakilla winery.  A great place to make our wine that’s for sure.

Ravensworth’s vineyard is situated in the bosom of the Murrumbateman wine country, just a half hour north of this fine nation’s capital, Canberra, or Kanbra as they call it.

The vineyard is planted with a mixture of varieties based on fairly precise scientific, meteorological and market information of the day.  Shiraz is the main crop and we have four different clones planted at the moment: Best’s selection old vine, the generic but awesome 1127, R6WV28 from Tahbilk and a new one, ENTAV 470 from France.

There are a number of Riesling vines planted; all Geisenheim clones – 110, 198,239. Sangiovese would be the next most planted variety, three clones MAT6, MAT 7, VCR23. And finally a mixture of whites that invariably go into the Grainery or Seven Months blends: Marsanne, roussanne, viognier, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. New varieties like Gamay and Nebbiolo are being planted over the next few years plus a couple of different varieties that might suit the elevated position here in Murrumbateman
