Dinny Goonan wines was established in 1988. We aim to produce wines of exceptional quality with a focus on Riesling and Shiraz.

Dinny Goonan Wines is one of a handful of families pioneering grape and wine production in the Otway hinterland.

Our wines have won numerous awards since the first commercial release in 2001.

Visitors are welcome to taste our wines and relax in our peaceful vineyard setting. You can find out more about the wines by talking to Dinny the winemaker, or stroll around the vineyard and winery.

Vineyard platters are available on weekends between November and April and every day during January. The platters have a regional focus providing the opportunity to match local wines with regional produce. The only distractions will come from the Crimson Rosellas and Blue Winged Grass Parrots that have made the vineyard their home.

We also offer a great coffee and a selection of local foodstuffs and oils. And then of course, there are our award winning wines.

We specialize in the production of cool climate Shiraz and Riesling.

We also produce limited quantities of Cabernets (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec), a Semillon / Sauvignon and a Sparkling wine (a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) which are available exclusively to our cellar door customers.
