The vineyard was established at Mia Mia in the southern part of the Heathcote Wine Region of Central Victoria in 1999, and in 2002 bore the first fruits of labour for the Baumgartner family(Norbert, Pam Nick & Chris).
The vines are low yielding and combined with a unique meso-climate produce rich intense and somewhat complex wines. Traditional methods are employed with wines made in small batch open fermenters and basket pressed. The wines are then matured in American & French Oak Barriques for a minimum of 18 months. Organic practices are used as much as possible in the vineyards although MVE is not certififed.
The Cellar Door is open daily and all are welcome to sample the delicious and tantalising wines and meet the winemakers who are passionate about their wines.
Small groups can be catered for with tutored tastings and other light refreshments, bookings in advance are required.
The Winery & Vineyards are located in Daniels Lane, Mia Mia almost opposite the end of the Burke & Wills track if traveling from Lancefield or midway between Heathcote & Kyneton on that road.
