Shaw Winesis a boutique winery established in 1998 on “Olleyville”, a 700 acre fine wool producing property established in the mid 1800’s. This historic property is located in Murrumbateman along the Barton Highway between Canberra and Yass.
Shaw Wines is a family owned and operated business, producing a full range of top quality estate grown fruit which has enabled the Shaw Family to consistently make superb quality wines year after year. Located in a prime position at an elevation of around 640 metres within what is described as a cool climate region, the Estate is quite unique in that several of the sites, with appropriately sloping aspects and superb soils, have microclimates perfectly suiting the production of outstanding Cabernet.
With around 85 acres of Riesling, Semillon, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon under vines, the property supplies Shaw wines with its entire production and can lay claim to the fact that they produce 100% Estate grown wines. In just a few short years, Shaw Wines have already been recognised with 24 trophies and a swag of gold, silver and bronze medals from various Australian and International wine shows.
