St Hubert’s was established in 1862 by Hubert De Castella as one of the very first wineries in Victoria’s picturesque Yarra Valley, helping to position the region as a premium wine producing area. He did not name the winery after himself, but after St Hubert the patron saint of the hunt – a 7th century nobleman who turned his life around following an encounter with a magnificent stag carrying a shining cross between his antlers.
In tribute to this story, a spectacular stag is the emblem of St Hubert’s and the name is reflected in one of the winery’s most magnificent and iconic range of Victorian wines – The Stag. The emblem reflects the nobility of the vineyards and the winery’s proud and robust image.
With a long history of producing outstanding cabernet sauvignons, St Hubert’s has developed an impeccable reputation and today continues to be lauded for its impressive portfolio of cool climate wines.
The winery boasts a heritage brand which has stood the test of time, now delivering rustic, interesting and often elegant wines in a stylish and contemporary space, setting the benchmark for cellar doors within the Yarra Valley landscape. On site, the winery has an indigenous art gallery with an ever-changing collection, a luxurious restaurant, flexible events space and on-site accommodation is currently under construction.
In 2022 St Hubert’s was lovingly redesigned and relaunched with its new contemporary cellar door and retail wine shop, where guided tastings are held every day of the week. Local cheeses and charcuterie are available to accompany tasting, or you can simply walk in for a glass overlooking the magnificent, sprawling vineyard.
⇐ 2016 Sparkling Rosé
A mouth-filling mousse on entry precedes a creamy and rich palate. Red fruits give vibrancy to the wine. The dosage of sugar adds freshness, and along with the aged textural elements, add flesh to the mid palate. A crisp, lively and refreshing style, with a long dry finish.
⇐ 2022 Pinot Blanc
Its nose has a mix of lifted fruit and floral notes, with a mineral backdrop. Nectarine guava, faint musk and tones of wet rock combine for a harmonious aroma. The palate has a core line of juicy acidity, with a mix of baked pears and citrus blossom flavours that titilate the senses.
⇐ 2022 Pinot Meunier
The palate is lightly framed and balanced. Red fruits carry from the nose, with a touch of stemmy feel. Low tannin impact – almost a cross between a pinot and rose. The perfect picnic wine.
⇐ 2021 Cabernet Merlot
The wine is medium-bodied and balanced. The palate is fresh and lively with cassis at its core. Restrained oak and soft but persistent tannins frame the wine nicely. It has the distinct scent of merlot plums, dark fruits and black olives.
