The Merlot is the pride of the Michelini stable, boasting vibrant red colour and violet fruit characters integrated with French oak. Like the Michelini family, Marzemino originates from the Trentino region in northern Italy, and this limited release wine displays deep colour, marzipan and chocolate notes on the nose and savoury finish. Another Italian variety, the Fragolino is made from the strawberry flavoured Fragola grape in a dessert style wine.

Eaglerange Estate

228 Happy Valley Road, Ovens VIC 3738

Eaglerange Estate is situated in North-east Victoria, along the hills of the beautiful Happy Valley. This cool climate winery is part of the Alpine Valleys wine region and has derived its name from the watchful eagles that have made the surrounding area their home for many decades.

Eaglerange Estate has been in the Ivone family for more then three generations, the property was first used for cattle, hay and chestnut trees. Eventually these activities made way for the vineyard to be established.

The first vines at Eaglerange Estate were planted in the spring of 1995. Frank and Tiziana, with the help of Frank's father, Luigi, and their daughters Natasha, Ashlee and Cassandra, planted each vine lovingly by hand. The Cabernet Sauvignon was the first variety to go in the ground, followed by the Merlot. Over the years other varieties such as Tempranillo, Riesling, White Frontignac and Saparavi have been added to the vineyard.

Part of the family heritage that stems back to past generations is the making of homemade salami. This artisan craft has been lovingly handed down to the current generation, which includes the ever-inquisitive grandchildren.

Their motto, "Set a Stout Heart to a Steep Hill", has been part of the Ivone family from the time of the Great Depression and is still very much part of our everyday lives. In essence, when faced with adversity, be strong of heart and will.

The future of Eaglerange Estate lies within the talents of the next generation. Their families carry with them the legacy of past generations into the future.
