6ft6 Wine Collection
The 6FT6 (six foot six) Wine Collection was first started in 2004 by Austins & Co. when our 90 acres of Pinot Noir located on our Sutherlands Creek property was producing great quality fruit. We wanted to be able to provide the people with a Pinot Noir that was affordable as an everyday wine. Since that time the range has expanded to 6 products including Prosecco, Crisp White (Pinot Gris/Riesling), Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. These easy-drinking cool climate wines are an easy drinking wine to be enjoyed now with or without food. Our aim is to always over-deliver on flavour and quality and to create a wine that you can enjoy over a long conversation with your friends and family. We are serious about quality wine, but we refuse to take ourselves too seriously!
The Sauvignon Blanc, Crisp White, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are all single vineyard wines, made from fruit grown on our Sutherlands Creek vineyard. The 6Ft6 range has high standards as it is made by Austins & Co. , a 5 red star rated winery by the Australian Wine Companion, 2016. The 6Ft6 range also carries a lot of awards and accolades including the most recent awards:

6ft6 Pinot Noir:
Pinot Noir is the second fastest growing wine variety in Australia and 6Ft6 is the fastest growing Pinot Noir in the market. We are so proud that the people love our 6Ft6 Pinot Noir as much as we do. Our aim is to continue taking you to new heights in wine!
Go to new heights with our Pinot Noir; an exotic, perfumed and alluring light red.
A fresh and fruit driven Pinot Noir that is typical of the variety exhibiting that beautiful spicy cherry flavour we have come to know and love from this grape. Made to drink and enjoy early, we recommend half an hour in the fridge before opening on a hot summer day and can be matched with a wide range of hot and cold treats, just nothing too heavy! Chacuterie; Prosciutto, Olive and Rocket pizza, Barbeque Duck just to name a few..
