Tertini Wines is dedicated to producing premium, cool climate wines with a particular interest in alternative varieties.
The Tertini Wines are subtle and elegant, with excellent fruit characters arising from the long, slow ripening period and our commitment to hand pruning, hand picking and low cropping. High natural acidity gives the wines a clean finish and good cellaring potential.
Our “Yaraandoo” vineyard is located near the historic village of Berrima in the Southern Highlands, an emerging cool climate region in New South Wales, at the relatively high altitude of 715 metres.
Although the vineyard is young, with the first plantings in 2000, it has produced outstanding fruit from the start. Our first real vintage was 2005 and the first wine we completed (the ’05 Tertini Riesling) won a Gold Medal and a Trophy in the first wine show we entered! Each wine and vintage since then has brought more medals from wine shows and accolades from Australia’s leading wine writers.
These outstanding results from young vines show great promise for the future and confirm the potential of both the vineyard and the region.
Our viticulturist is a cool climate/Southern Highlands specialist who applies all his knowledge to obtaining the best possible results in the vineyard. Grapes are hand pruned and then hand picked to ensure that only the best fruit is selected each year. Our winemakers are also cool climate specialists who apply their expertise and experience through careful, meticulous handling in the winery.
Tertini Wines has won another award, a GOLD for the 2015 Pinot Noir at the AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge and a SILVER for their 2014 Pinot!
