• Gippsland Region

• Located between Bairnsdale, gateway to the Lakes and Wilderness area of East Gippsland, and Lakes Entrance, one of Victoria's most popular holiday destinations. The winery boasts outstanding views, perched on a gentle rise overlooking the Nicholson River and the magnificent Gippsland Lakes.

First planted as a hobby in 1978, by the owners Ken and Juliet Eckersley, it soon became obvious that the gravelly loam soils and mild maritime climate combined to produces some remarkable wines characterised by fragrant aromas, intense flavours and complexity on the palate.

The Nicholson River Chardonnay, acknowledged as one of Australia's most complex and opulent wines, was voted "most popular white wine" at the Victorian Winemakers Exhibition on eight occasions.

‘Gippsland’ wines are soft, early drinking styles using local fruit.
‘Montview’ is the original name of the house going back to the 1880s when it was built using red gum grown on the property, hence it was chosen as the name for the main range of wines, offering complex wines at good value.
‘Nicholson River’ wines are the Reserve 5 star wines.

• Macedon Ranges Region
The Macedon Ranges viticultural region is situated just to the north-east of Melbourne’s International airport, and is one of the three coolest wine growing regions on the Australian mainland. The concept of terroir is nowhere more applicable than in Macedon. This once volcanic region offers an unparalleled choice of site, exposure and altitude. The thin mountain soils range from granitic sandy grey loam to weathered black basalt clay. Given the altitude (Mount Macedon is just over 1,000 m high), winds can be a problem as they sweep up over the exposed high slopes, making the choice of site important. These difficult climatic conditions keep yields low, but producers such as Mount Gisborne keeps them low, producing a mere 10 to 13 tonnes from their 7 acres in their quest to produce truly outstanding wines.
