In the world of wine, winemakers normally get all the attention. However, making wines that are true to our region could never happen without a strong team. We’re privileged to find ourselves surrounded by eager and talented people who appreciate our land, vineyards and wines. Every day we learn from each other and are grateful for this shared knowledge.
Trophy-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are grown at our Capella Vineyard which is Handpicked’s spiritual home and where our winemakers are based. Our Collins Street cellar door is opening in early 2021. The winery and vineyard are open by appointment only.
Sustainable, balanced wines are handcrafted by Sam Coverdale under two labels. Polperro wines from Mornington Peninsula vineyards and Even Keel from Australian cool climate regions.
Established by Lindsay McCall in beautiful Red Hill amongst ten acres of vines, Paringa Estate is most famous for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, they also produce one of the countries top cool climate Shiraz.
Elgee Park is the oldest vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula and produces award winning, exceptional wines available at Merricks General Wine Store.
On the Mornington Peninsula, we grow cool-climate varieties including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, producing wines that express the full range of styles from these classic grapes.
'Let me tell you a story I've never told before.'
There’s good surf just down the road from Polperro in Red Hill and that’s why Sam Coverdale ‘may’ be late for a meeting or two.
After all, you’ve got to go with the flow. Ever checking his phone to monitor weather patterns for vineyard disease pressure, and of course the swell, this Mornington Peninsula winemaker understands the importance of letting nature dictate the essence and quality of product.
The ebb and flow of the seasons defines each of his single vineyard wines and he’s happy to follow those tides towards complete sensory seduction from barrel to board and back again.
