Ripplebrook Winery

We are a second generation family from the Aeolian Islands producing premium wines from our dry-grown, organic, single vineyard.

We make Sparkling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our cellar door "Giuseppes" is situated on our vineyard and showcases the breathtaking views of Mt Baw Baw. Giuseppes is named after our beautiful Nonno who was passionate about his garden and his family.

 Our family

Ripplebrook Winery was created in loving memory of Giuseppe Raffaele - Catena's father - who passed away in 2013.

Giuspeppe came to Australia from Lipari in the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily after marrying Angelina. Together, they raised and instilled his three daughters with Italian stories, traditions and delicacies.

"Giuseppes" - the name of our cellar door re-creates the cosy, warm and loving care that Giuseppe gave to his garden and family and we want to share that with you.

Our wine and vineyard are crafted and cared for in the same loving way our father cared meticulously for his garden.

Catena Raffaele left her corporate career in 2009 and purchased 22 acres in West Gippsland. Inspired by her Italian heritage and love for exceptional wine, she opened Giuseppes cellar door in 2015 to share her warmth and hospitality.
