Blue Pyrenees was established in 1963 by the French Remy Martin. Then called Chateau Remy, the Estate was one of the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture. The site at the foothills of the Pyrenees ranges, near Avoca in Victoria, was chosen as one of only two locations in Australia to meet a specific criteria for idyllic climatic conditions and soils, not dissimilar to those of Bordeaux. Although initially established with a primary focus on brandy production, the potential for exceptional table and methode traditionelle sparkling wines was soon recognised.
A French-Australian fusion in style began to emerge - wines with elegance and refinement that reflect the diversity of the Estate’s vineyards and are, ultimately, made to be enjoyed.
Today the estate is 100% Australian-owned and led by CEO and Chief Winemaker Andrew Koerner, Blue Pyrenees wines including sparkling, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet are continuously viewed as some of Australia’s finest wines.
