Welcome to SMITH’S Vinyard

Peter and Di Smith first planted chardonnay grapes in Beechworth in 1979 under the suggestion of their good friend John Brown. Smiths Vineyard is only 3.2 hectares in size. Their daughter Sarah Flamsteed and husband Will, now manage the site and hope to continue the level of fruit quality.

The vineyard is at 550 metres altitude and on a hillside over looking the Ovens Valley and Mt Buffalo. It is the oldest vineyard in Beechworth, and produces premium boutique wines.

Will and Sarah’s vision include the development of wines under the Smith Vineyard family label as well as under a new brand, “Flamsteed”- a label developed in conjunction with Will’s brother, Steve Flamsteed.

Great wine is made in the vineyard and our philosophy of minimal impact viticulture and traditional winemaking methods is foremost at Smiths Vineyard.
