Hoddles Creek Estate

The discreet entrance of Hoddles Creek Estate verges on the Burgundian model, where there is a small metal plaque the size of an A4 sheet of paper at best, or nothing at all. The latter is apparently based on the presumption that if you have business with the winery, you will know where it is (mostly underground, sheltered by the house of the winegrower). Hoddles Creek Estate is one of the little known jewels of the Yarra Valley, owned by the D’Anna family, with son Franco the winemaker, producing superb wines at ludicrously low prices. More to come in a few weeks, but in the meantime, go to or 505 Gembrook Road, Hoddles Creek, VIC 3139.
