The Yarra Valley is our home and Pinot Noir is our heart and soul.

Making seriously delicious wines that we love to share

At Innocent Bystander our passion for sharing seriously good wine – not too seriously – unites us. There’s nothing we love more, than to rise above the noise and bring some joy to wine’s all-too-sober conversations.

We make the wines we love to drink and share, from delectable Pinot Noir to effervescent Moscato, starting every vintage with the finest grapes from our home in the Yarra Valley and beyond. From here, the serious winemaking bit is easy. Gentle coercion in open fermenters or lazy days maturing in barrel, we treat each parcel of fruit individually to draw out its unique character.

Our Australian-made wines can be found across the globe, but if you want the full Innocent Bystander experience then come by our winery in Healesville just an hour out of Melbourne. It’s a bar, a restaurant and your home away from home, serving our full range of wines along with shared dishes, wood-fired pizza, paella and other tasty treats. Here our wine isn’t the centre of attention, you are!

Looking forward to a whole lot of this, this weekend 🤤 #IBwine
Our Naturally Innocent Field Blend is a complex and textural style that harnesses natural wine making techniques while keeping all the fun and drink-ability of you all know and love. How? The fruit is picked over a day with the juices co-fermented. It’s a natural take on wine with minimal intervention from vineyard to bottle – no fining or filtration, just a rich and textural wine.

👃SMELLS LIKE: grapefruit, lemon, a bit of sea spray and white blossom
🍷 TASTES LIKE: juicy melon and ripe peach, with tight acid on the finish
🍕 ENJOY WITH: charcuterie board, prawn pizza, and beef carpaccio and on days ending in Y.

Shop online or grab a bottle the next time you visit IBHQ.
Did you know you can now refill your empty #IBwine bottles with selected wines straight from our cellar door taps? By refilling you’re preventing 1.1Kg of carbon emissions entering the atmosphere, saving a couple of bucks and getting great wine.

Tap a bystander on the shoulder the next time you're in or read all about it via the link in our bio.
Our kinda night; Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir by an open fire. With characters of dark cherries and spice, this Yarra Valley Pinot Noir is smooth and velvety on the palate with soft savoury tannins. Need we say more?  #IBWine
There's nothing quite like winter time in the Yarra Valley. Blankets of fog over the vines, crisp mornings and sunny afternoons, bright sunsets and cool nights. We think it's pretty special out our way, so if it's been a while and a trip is on the cards, we're here and ready for you. #IBwine
