In the world of wine, winemakers normally get all the attention. However, making wines that are true to our region could never happen without a strong team. We’re privileged to find ourselves surrounded by eager and talented people who appreciate our land, vineyards and wines. Every day we learn from each other and are grateful for this shared knowledge.
Come, meet the winemakers and experience a tasting at our relaxed and rustic cellar door. Artisan wine grown and produced on site.

On the Mornington Peninsula, we grow cool-climate varieties including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, producing wines that express the full range of styles from these classic grapes.
'Preparing the grounds for the next generation.'
The drive to create a sustainable, ecologically responsible wine business has been shaped by Rollo’s desire to build on the solid foundation established by his parents Garry and Margaret, and prepare the ground for the next generation.
After studying winemaking at Charles Sturt University, then travelling to California, Oregon, Italy and the Hunter Valley to work vintages and learn as much as he could abroad, returning to the Mornington Peninsula in 2003. At the age of 30, he rejoined the family business and worked hand-in-hand with his Dad to reconnect with the vineyard he helped plant as a five year-old.
Perched on the cool, southeast maritime corner of Australia are the ideal ripening conditions for the delicate, seductive Pinot Noir grape.
