Pret a Blanc - ready to go, ready to drink! If you are on the hunt for delightful, intriguing whites leaning towards the aromatic side; this should be right up on your hit-list.

The Pret-a-Blanc is the all-rounder in the VS&B range. It’s not from their own vineyards in Beechworth, but instead comprised of King Valley Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris,. With careful blending and attention to detail, this has taken this textural, Alsatian inspired blend to a wonderful place.

Smells of dried mango, flower oil and ylang ylang – a bit of chalky jasmine with a gentle palate, talcy violet notes, zip, zing and a lifted spice character.

Heralded as “one of Beechworth’s rising stars,” husband and wife team Tessa and Jeremy Schmölzer Brown purchased a 20ha block of prime cleared land just south of Beechworth, complete with lake and abandoned goldmine back in 2013. Whilst Jeremy had previously worked as an architect, Tessa comes with a wealth of cellar experience, having clocked up years working as a winemaker at Kooyong estate, and closer by at Sorrenberg. They’ve so far planted 10,000 vines at the highest point of their property, with the plan to farm it organically. In Tessa’s words, “Winery operations are a shadow dance to the vineyard's growing season and although the work happens indoors, it can’t be separated from the vineyard.” Whilst waiting for these vines to mature, they’ve been producing wine from several vineyards close by in Beechworth, as well as the King Valley and the Alpine Valleys, all farmed with the same principles as they follow. 2018 will see the first vintage from their own plantings, and we couldn’t be more excited!
