Lovegrove Vineyard & Winery was formerly called Lovegrove of Cottles Bridge. It is located in Cottles Bridge in the Yarra Valley wine region of Victoria's Dandenong Ranges, in Melbourne Surrounds.

Lovegrove is owned by Stephen Bennett and Louise Heathcote, two people that have devoted most of their lives to wine and food and art. There won't be too many weekends when you don't find Stephen and Louise sharing their passion and knowledge with the many interested cellar door visitors.

The Vineyard

Beautifully situated on sunny north-west slopes of the Diamond Valley - a sub-region of the Yarra Valley highly regarded for the quality of its wines - the 10 acre vineyard, established in 1983, has gained a strong reputation for producing superior fruit. Distinctive wines of true varietal character and resounding fruit quality are produced on the estate from the classic Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet varieties.

The soil type is a low fertile clayey grey loam filled with degrading yellow-brown mudstone. The annual rainfall is a modest 500mm on average. These two factors contribute to the vineyard being naturally low yielding. However, these two things plus the reflective radiation of the many stones littered throughout the vineyard and the sun exposure, due to its favourable aspect, contribute to consistent ripening of fruit and high sugar levels.
