David Traeger wines was established in 1985 at Nagambie and he has currently 20 hectares (50 acres) under vine. David uses the wine making facilities at Somerset Crossing Winery in Seymour to make the wines - this is an arrangement which is beneficial to both wineries, avoiding much unnecessary duplication of equipment.

David has two vineyards, which he operates. The first at Greytown, which was planted in 1892 predominantly to Shiraz, with a new section being grafted to Verdelho. The second vineyard is at Avenel, which is planted to Verdelho.

Verdelho is the grape that has given David Traeger wines it's marketing edge. It is from this rather unfashionable varietal, that David makes the country's best Verdelho dry white wine. He has been making Verdelho for the last 9 vintages.
