Hoddles Creek Estate was established in 1997 when the D'Anna family decided to plant a vineyard on the property that had been in the family since 1960. Sitting astride Gembrook Road and adjacent Hoddles Creek, its steeply sloping blocks prohibit mechanical harvesting, with both vineyards being hand pruned and harvested to ensure optimal quality. All that hard work does not translate to exorbitant prices though, with their excellent Estate Pinot proving year after year to be an absolute bargain for the quality of the wine. This week we have Franco's cracking 2018 vintage on offer and we are, yet again, very much taken with the wine. Enjoy!
