Newbridge Wines

Victoria | Bendigo

Our Review

The Newbridge property was purchased by Ian Simpson in 1979, partly for sentimental family history reasons and partly because of the beauty of the property situated on the banks of the Loddon River. It was not until ’96 that Ian decided to plant shiraz. Up to and including the 2002 vintage the grapes were sold to several local wineries. Ian retained the grapes and made wine in ’03, and lived to see that and the following 2 vintages take shape before his death. The property is now run by his son Andrew, the wines contract-made by Mark Matthews, supported by Andrew. -JAMES HALLIDAY
