Moorooduc is a founding winery on the cool-climate Mornington Peninsula at the very southern tip of the mainland (heading toward Antarctica), 1.5 hours south of Melbourne. Planted in 1983 and family owned and run, Richard, his wife Jill, and daughter Kate (MW), focus on single site Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Organically dry-farmed, all wild yeast, no fining or filtration. They’ve always worked with the same three vineyards (their own, their viticulturalist’s, and one leased from family friends). Door-opener wines for fine dining.
Overall production below 5,000 cases.
