The Riverstone Story
Riverstone, so much more than a bottle of wine
But a unique story that represents ambition, success and family.
Riverstone’s story begins over 70 years ago, when Peter Inglese arrived in Yarra Valley in 1950, sailing from Italy, as a young boy with nothing but dream. Growing up in Healesville, Peter understood the potential of the cool climate and uniquely fertile soils of the Yarra Valley in which elegant and perfect grapes could be grown.

The winery is on the summit of Yarra Valley, immersed by vast land, endless brooks, scenic landscaping and a beautiful green vineyard. The vines, grown in the famous Yarra Valley soil, some planted 30 years ago, produce quality grapes native to the Yarra Valley region. A total of 30 hectares, 16 growing red and 14 growing white.
Riverstone Estate is located in the heart of Yarra Valley which is a famous tourist area and is one of Australia's three major wine producing sectors. Sitting on the highest point surrounded by mountainous views and beautiful scene of the Yarra river, the infamous Riverstone homestead was built from bluestone and 100 year old Oregon timber.
