About the Producer
Bruce and Jenni Chalmers began growing grapes in the 1980s, with their vineyard in Murray Darling, on the border of Victoria and New South Wales. This diverse and thriving vineyard spawned their nursery business, which is responsible for importing close to 70 new clones and varieties. These varieties were released to Australia in 2000 and have since been a major factor in the improvements in sustainability and quality seen in the Australian wine industry in the last 20 years.

Their first vintage was in 2003, made by winemaker Sandro Mosele. Since 2017, the Chalmers family has been making the wines themselves.

Bruce and Jenni’s daughters Kim and Tennille have been the custodians of the family business since 2005 and 2011, respectively. They purchased an 80- hectare plot in the northern portion Heathcote, where they have been able to find the greatest Australian terroirs for the Italian grapes they’ve been importing and championing for decades. Their success has been largely dependent on their ability to match Italian grapes to Australian climates, focusing on thick-skinned grapes that are drought tolerant, resistant to sunburn, and have plenty of natural acidity.

Their Montevecchio wines are all about simplicity and fun, but never boring.  Grown at our Heathcote vineyard in central Victoria, which is home to over 20 different Italian grape varieties, the name means old mountain referring to the Cambrian origins of the regions famous red soils.

The delicious and approachable Montevecchio wines are inspired by the everyday drinking wines of Italy.  The streamlined range including a bianco, rosato, rosso and moscato are fresh and vibrant, designed to be enjoyed in their youth. The blends may change from vintage to vintage but the vibe stays the same.
