Yarran Wines is a family owned and operated winery. The vineyards, winery and cellar door are all located in Yenda, NSW. Yenda is part of the Riverina region, the area has a long tradition for winemaking dating back to 1913 and is well reknowned for producing world class high quality wines. Fruit has been grown on the family vineyard for 30 years, an interest to create wine from a viticultural background was developed as one of the owners began a oenology degree. The family business has since grown from producing a single Shiraz in 1998 to many different varietal table wines.

Behind The Scenes All the winery staff are part owners and family members alike. Lorraine Brewer has been a member of the wine industry as a grower, as was her husband, the late John for over 30 years. When son Sam developed a keen interest in wine and began studying Oenology at Charles Sturt University in 1998 the edgling winery emerged.

Lorraine is actively involved in running the winery administration while co-vineyard owner Jim Maier produces fruit and manages the vineyard while Sam’s role is winemaking. Sam has gained experience and worked in many different wine regions such as the Yarra Valley, King Valley, Sonoma Valley (US), China and the Riverina. In 2009 Sam joined the family business as Winemaker. The Wines The winemaking philosophy behind the wines has evolved over time with each vintage being nely tuned to deliver the highest quality wines to our customers. Creative winemaking coupled with a strong commitment to expressing regional style has been a rewarding mix. Each vintage our wines continue to be of a high standard and have gathered exciting accolades and reviews. We are always trying something a little less mainstream each year, attempting to challenge ourselves and delivering wines with an extra element and character to the market place. The Yarran Range takes its name from a native tree 
that grows abundantly in the local area and around the vineyard. The wines in the Yarran range have performed well in the wine show circuit and with commentators year in year out. This portfolio of wines covers your favourite varieties and we aim to make wines showing really
lifted varietal fruit character in an approachable style. Dependable, high quality and great value wines.
