Karel Schaefer loves chardonnay, a conversation started back in 2015 about planting some vines to satisfy the thirst. Karel  & Family planted their first vines at Two Mile Hill in 2017, it’s a 4 acre site with 3 different soil types & 3 varieties. The Chardonnay is planted on rich red volcanic soil with a south slightly west facing slope with the clone i10V5, this is the first vintage produced from Two Mile Hill, with exciting 2022s in barrel & a lovely looking crop for 2023. It’s located 5km from Eastern Peake from which you can still see our vineyard & seems to be one/two weeks earlier than us with flowering & harvest dates. Farming is shared between Karel & us under our guidance.
