Journey Wines is Damian North. Damian’s journey has seen him begin his wine career as a respected sommelier at fine Sydney restaurants before heading to the Yarra Valley to become a winemaker. He then headed to Oregon and Margaret River before returning to the valley to establish his own label.
Established in 1976, Lillydale Estate producers wines from some of the oldest vineyards in the Yarra Valley. The new family owners have embarked on an exciting new stage of development, reinvigorating the brand and, most importantly, the wines. Click HERE for Winsor Dobbin review.
