About Ceres

The soils of Bannockburn are unforgiving. Windblown. Stony. The first grapes were planted here in the 1860s by a French goldminer. The land has never made it easy. Ceres' vineyards are named Swansong, Black Rabbit, and Inlet. Swansong is steep — the vines clawing their way along terraces of eroded gravel and clay. Black Rabbit sits on ancient bedrock, vines nestled into windblown soil. Inlet’s vines drape over a terrace of deep river gravel. They coax the best out of these reluctant soils by striving for balance.
