Paradigm Hill winery: reflecting the unique soils
Paradigm Hill is a family run winery on the Mornington Peninsula in Merricks, Victoria, Australia. The winery focuses on producing excellent wines that reflect the unique conditions of the Mornington Peninsula and on minimizing their environmental impact by working towards a goal of zero carbon footprint.
Following a sustainable practice
The winery was born when Ruth and George Mihaly decided to leave their careers in food and medical research for and pursue their dreams of establishing a winery. Ruth took up viticulture, and her caring and committed approach is the reason that beautiful vines stretch across the 10 acres of north facing gentle slope at Paradigm Hill. George’s background in scientific research was beneficial in his ability to master the process of winemaking. He also learned much about the intuitive aspects of making wine under the mentorship of his friend Nat White at the nearby Main Ridge Estate.
The two are committed to environmentally sustainable practices and producing quality wines that reflect the terroir
Experience diverse profiles of vintages
The cool maritime climate of the Mornington Peninsula is particularly suited to growing pinot noir, which Paradigm Hill grows in their vineyards along with Shiraz, Riesling, and Pinot Gris. In the vineyard, the main focus is on growing healthy and balanced vines that produce exceptional low yielding fruit. The Merricks sub-region also has distinctive characteristics, which is expressed in the diverse profiles of the vintages. The winery produces red wine, white wine and rosé. Only estate grown grapes are used in on site production of Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Pinot Gris, and Riesling so that each truly reflects the character of the unique terroir.
