Shane and Ali Clancey have turned a former potato paddock into a small, but very successful, wine business. In '02 Shane began planting a multi-clone pinot noir vineyard, plus a small planting of tempranillo. Basalt Wines’ grape intake is supplemented by a Drumborg vineyard, including 0.4ha of 26yo MV6 pinot noir and, even more importantly, riesling of the highest quality. Shane is viticulturist, assistant winemaker, wholesaler and runs the cellar door. Ali is involved in various parts of the business, including the small flock of babydoll sheep which graze next to the winery. -JAMES HALLIDAY

Before you make your way to Basalt, “Tower Hill” Volcano with its nature reserve only a few hundred meters across the paddock is a must see. Basalt has recently opened the doors to a stunning new cellar door/restaurant showcasing local artisan cheese producers & seafood's, with the standout dish being Local smoked eel on Killarney potato, matched with Basalt Great ocean road Riesling.
