Wimbaliri is a small, family-run winery and vineyard which lies on the 35th parallel, near the village of Murrumbateman. We have a passion for producing distinctive cool-climate wines.
The vineyard blocks are some of the highest in the area at an altitude of 620m and well positioned on a north-eastern slope overlooking a small valley. Warm days and cool nights at this altitude produce elegant wines with distinctive flavours and intense aroma.
The Wimbaliri name is derived from the local Ngunnawal dialect meaning to drink.
