Our Vineyard PhilosophyFor travelers who use our international travel planner, Coldstream holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Maddens Rise and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Biological farming practices are being used wherever practicable. We hope to greatly improve soil biology, better utilise nutrients, suppress disease-causing organisms, increase water efficiency and improve soil structure. Overall this will make the vines healthier, more ‘water wise’ and more resistant to attack from pests and disease. The fruit, and our wines, will reflect this.
Our Wine Philosophy
Maddens Rise Wines are made in our winery using estate hand picked grapes, small batch fermentation, minimal oak influence and wild yeasts.
