The D’Aloisio family have been involved in the agricultural heritage of the Yarra Valley since the late 1960's and by 1994 planted the first vines on their 36 hectare property, known as Yarraland. Plantings initially included red varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Pinot Noir along with white varieties of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. 2010 saw the introduction of 4 European varietals planted in the vineyard.

Constantly striving to produce fruit of the highest quality for their Billanook Estate wines is reflected in the meticulous way the Yarraland Vineyard is managed. Family members oversee the process of the grapes to wine, from harvest to bottle. The vineyard is located in one of the prime positions in the Yarra Valley that takes in spectacular views.
The Yarra Valley region is located in the south east of Australia and is world renowned for its cool climate growing conditions that produce premium quality grapes.
