The vineyard "Taltarni Vineyards" is located near Avoca in the Pyrenees wine-growing region in the Australian state of Victoria. The name, which comes from the Aboriginal language, means "red earth" and refers to the clay soil, which is rich in silicon and iron and thus red in colour (see Terra Rossa). The farm was founded in 1969 and was one of the founders of the winegrowing sector at that time. The current owners John Goelet and Red Earth Nominees acquired it in 1972 with the vision of making first-class wines in a rather cooler Mediterranean climate.

The first wines were marketed five years later. The total estate comprises around 700 hectares of land, of which 132 hectares are planted with vines. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level. Cool nights and warm days create excellent climatic conditions for the production of top wines. The red wine varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Malbec, as well as the white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling are cultivated.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
