A lifestyle designed to make everyday extraordinary.

It is rare to find housing estates on the iconic Murray River that offer absolute river frontage. The riverfront lots look across to the Gunbower State Forest, a beautiful natural reserve that wraps itself around the river and will always form a part of the environment of River Estate. Living directly on the river allows you to become part of the river lifestyle, including easy access to the water for boating, fishing and swimming. As part of the picturesque townships of Barham (NSW) and Koondrook (Vic), you can enjoy the vibrant country community with its many amenities and social activities, including a variety of sport, culture, gala events, food and wine.

Enjoy Barham Vines at River Estate

Situated on Riverview Drive the vineyard makes a welcoming the entrance to River Estate  

Three red wine varieties were selected, Tempranillo, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon as they are best suited to our climate and soil type, for their distinct characteristics and their ability to be blended into interesting, modern wines..

Wine production began with our first mature harvest in March 2015 we recently enjoyed sampling the Barham Vines Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz blend which will be available for sale very soon.

Harvest weekend is very much a community event at Barham Vines with friends and family gathering together in the cool of early morning to spend a few leisurely hours catching up whilst picking the next vintage.

The cellar door is underway with the arrival of our shipping container, this will be fitted out especially for wine tastings with future plans for an underground cellar with wines sales plus picnic areas and a walking paths. In the mean time Barham vines wine can be purchased from barhamvines.com.
