Wine Tasting at Punch

Punch Vineyards, nestled in the Yarra Valley, is the passionate endeavour of James and Claire Lance. Continuing the legacy of James's father, David Lance, a pioneer in Pinot Noir cultivation in the region, Punch has been producing distinguished wines since 2005. The vineyard, established in 1976 on a unique site chosen for its challenging yet promising terroir, is managed with a commitment to organic and holistic practices. This dedication ensures that each bottle of Punch wine is a true expression of its revered terroir, encapsulating the essence of their meticulously cared-for vineyard with minimal intervention winemaking techniques.

The resilience of Punch is exemplified by their recovery from the devastating Black Saturday bushfires of 2009. In the spirit of community and gratitude, the Friends of Punch label was created to honour the support received from fellow grape growers. This initiative not only symbolises the vineyard's perseverance but also its deep-rooted connections within the wine community, showcasing small parcels of exceptional fruit from allied vineyards alongside their estate-grown offerings. Punch's portfolio, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, and several other varietals, reflects a blend of tradition, innovation, and gratitude.
