Six Acres

is a family run vineyard and winery located in Silvan in the Yarra Valley, planted in 1999 by Ralph and Lesley Zuccaro. 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.

The primary focus of Six Acres is maximizing the potential of their six acres of vineyard. Viticulturally they only use organic sprays, promote natural grasses in an uncultivated permanent sward, and are developing a composting and mulching program to maximize the health of their soils. Their vines are dry grown, helping to counter the fertility of the red volcanic soils. The hand tending of their vineyard to maintain balance and concentration of flavor is an all-consuming task that involves the whole family.

To bring out the best from the fruit that they have carefully tended, the family are also moving towards a more minimal intervention winemaking practice. Winemaking at Six Acres is lead by son Aaron Zuccaro, whose experience has shown him that this is the best way to produce wines of character, flavor, vibrancy and with a vital sense of place.

Simply put, their aim each year is to produce bright, textural and complex wines in a way that works for the expression of the quality of their grapes and the expression of the terroir of their vineyard.
