Arundel Farm Estate
Arundel Farm Estate is a boutique winery located within the Sunbury Wine Region just 16 kilometers from the City of Melbourne. The vineyard was originally planted to two acres of Shiraz and Cabernet in mid 1980. Rick Kinzbrunner of Giaconda Wines made the first vintages in 1988, 1989 and 1990. Rick Kinzbrunner continued as the winemaker until the mid 90’s. The vineyard has been expanded to 20 acres and consists of 40 year old vines along with the newer plantings in 1996 and 2000. Today, the vineyards are planted solely to Shiraz, 16 acres and Viognier, four acres – the varieties best suited to the Sunbury Wine Region.
