Wimbaliri is a small family owned and operated vineyard and winery with a passion for producing distinctive cool-climate wines. The vineyard sits at an altitude of 620m and is well positioned on a north-eastern slope overlooking a small valley with beautiful views, just three kilometres south of Murrumbateman village.
The soils of Wimbaliri are decomposed granite and gravels. Much of the vineyard is close-planted.
