Just outside Beechworth, on 60 acres of rolling hills, set in ancient granitic soil is Serengale Vineyard and Retreat. Gayle Taylor is the qualified winemaker and together with Serena Abbinga, who qualified in Viticulture, founded the vineyard in 1999 with their winery and cellar door established in 2015. The vineyard uses its aspect, the ancient soil and cool climate, to produce slow ripening, full flavoured grapes allowing Gayle and Serena to create superb red and white wines, recognised as one of the top ten new Wineries in the Halliday Wine Companion of 2020.
