Munari winery: Established by a Scottish military family
The Munari Wines and cellar door is located in the breath-taking foothills of the Mount Ida Mountain Range, only 7 minutes from Heathcote. The original property on which the winery sits, was established in 1871 as a hotel by a Scottish military family. The total area of the land was originally 3200 acres, which was later broken down into smaller, land parcels.
These wines will please every palate
The current Munari Wines property retains 57 acres of the original land. Munari Wines is a family run winery that was started in 1993 with the philosophy of understanding the site, the soil and the climate and then growing the grape varietals that are best suited to these factors.
The wine makers at Munari winery believe that one should not be restricted by the past but should complement old wine making techniques with new and innovative methods
This will allow room for experimentation and adventure along the path of producing the highest quality of wines. All of the wines produced at Munari Wines are designed to display their own individuality and satisfy even the most complex and challenging of palates. The aim is to create wines that allow for easy drinking but still produce great value.
A colourful bouquet of excellent wines
Over a short period of only 25 years, this historic sheep station has grown from a single Shiraz and a blend into an award-winning portfolio of Australian wines. This portfolio includes the Shiraz, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Merlot, a Malbec and the much-loved Schoolhouse Red blend. In 2005 the Munari Wines wine makers created the first Fottified Shiraz, Shiraz-Viognier, Rose and a late Harvest.
