For more than fifty years, Taltarni has crafted world-class wines that start in the pristine environment of its Pyrenees vineyards, just a few hours north of Melbourne. The winery’s ethos of balance, elegance, and sustainability pays homage to a deep connection with the land and commitment to producing exceptional wines that display those distinctive regional characteristics.
Located amongst the beautiful ranges and sweeping vistas of the Pyrenees Wine Region, Taltarni’s picturesque property encompasses 240 acres under vine. Rich with fertile soils, cool nights and warm days, the Pyrenees foothills and ranges provide a diversity of micro-climates for Taltarni’s vignerons and winemakers. Varieties of Taltarni include chardonnay and pinot noir for sparkling production, and shiraz and cabernet sauvignon sourced from vines planted in 1969. The winery continues to receive accolades and trophies across the wine collection at many Australian and international wine shows; including the Premier’s Trophy in the Victorian Wine Show 2021 as well as trophies for Best Shiraz, Blanc de Blancs, and Champion Wine at the Ballarat Wine Show 2021.
Passionate in its commitment to crafting exceptional wines, the team believe it’s the finer details that unlock the true magic of Taltarni. Constantly raising the bar of quality and technique, every bottle of wine embodies the meticulous care and attention to detail of Taltarni’s vignerons, winemakers and gatekeepers.

⇐ 2019 Blanc de Blancs
With a golden hue and fine bead and mousse this wine delivers delicate citrus notes on both the palate and nose accompanied by hints of oyster shell due to extended time on yeast lees. The palate is complex with a natural acid and a creamy minerality due to the malolactic fermentation in oak. This wine is balanced and refined, displaying the true quality of Pyrenees Chardonnay.
⇐ 2021 Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre
With a deep plum colour, this medium-bodied wine is perfectly balanced, while still showing the finest points of each varietal. The Grenache contributes the core bright red fruit aromatics and sweet, dark berry flavours while the Shiraz intensifies the palate with earthy notes and enriches the weight. The Mourvèdre ties the blend together by adding the soft spice notes to aroma and palate while lingering long on the finish.
⇐ 2020 Old Vine Shiraz
Showing elegance and balance, this wine has layer upon layer of flavours complemented by a solid core of currants, plums and spicy aromatics. The palate is medium weight with succulence and seamless silky tannins and lingers long after the wine.
⇐ 2017 Taltarni The Patron
As the new hero of the Taltarni range, The Patron is the epitome of the estate’s quality in terms of both vineyard and winemaking. Crafted by the skilled winemakers from their oldest vines, this cabernet shiraz blend has an incredibly low yield, with only the best fruit being used each vintage. Along with structure and finesse, The Patron has drive and concentration, speaking for itself as purely and utterly Taltarni.
