Alton Farms Estate Winery wines are handcrafted using 100% locally grown grapes.  

To maintain all the flavour in our wines, we only lightly filter and we don’t overly chill our wines prior to bottling. This can lead to some light sediment and shiny crystals of tartaric acid being deposited in the bottles. We recommend decanting all our wines prior to drinking.
