At Six Acres,

the Zuccaro family combines classic winemaking practices and environmentally sustainable principles to create a range of unique, handcrafted wines.

Situated with a picturesque vantage point at the tip of the southern Yarra Valley, the north-facing Six Acres vineyard benefits from rich volcanic soil and enjoys a cool climate, 250 metres above sea level.

Bartolomeo and Assunta Zuccaro immigrated to Victoria from the fertile, remote Aeolian Island Filicudi in the 1950s, they brought passion for sharing good food and wine with family and friends.

They have passed these values on to their son, Six Acres owner & winemaker Ralph. Ralph, in turn, has instilled a love of great wine and exceptional attention to detail in his son, winemaker & scientist Aaron, and together they have worked for the last decade to transform a hobby farm into a thriving business.

For Ralph & Aaron, the first priority is growing and sourcing the best local fruit, to create red & white wines with great character & warmth that are guaranteed to become household fixtures after the first taste. "Our size enables us to focus on the finer details of the winemaking & grape growing process, allowing us to strive to produce wine of exceptional quality." - Ralph
