Our Story

“There is something in everyone of you that waits and listens for the sound in the genuine in yourself and is the only true guide you’ll ever have and if you cannot hear it you’ll spend all of your days at the end of strings that somebody else pulls.” – Huayhuash Film.

Well, I finally listened to that inner voice and decided this is what I wanted to do… to simply make wine! With this decision came the opportunity and Petronio Wines was born. The years has seen us grow, by taking the plunge, through shear hard work, learning from past mistakes, sacrifice and patience. We continue on our journey driven by passion for we have found something that we love to do… we are artisan winemakers based in Victoria’s picturesque Yarra Valley. We handcraft small batches of single vineyard wines that express the ‘terrior’ from which they were grown from. Welcome … and let us share the passion for wine together.
