Did You Know?

Churchview Estate is named after the heritage listed church as seen from the tasting room. St. John the Baptist Anglican Church was built to serve the small community of Boyndlie Park (later Metricup), which was the social centre for the Group Settlement (Group 60) settlers. The church was built from funds sent from England to cater for the ‘Group Settler’ families. Metricup Church (St. John the Baptist) was built in 1935 and cost £105.00

Winemaker Greg Garnish

What a lot of the local industry don’t know is that Greg has a business law degree and a master of accounting degree, fortunately, for us, Greg found this career way too boring. So he packed away his desk, ditched the suit and in 2004 started his wine making apprenticeship whilst studying Wine Science at Charles Sturt University. Greg has been crafting Churchview’s wines since 2009.
