About Mitchell Harris Wines

Based in our home town of Ballarat, and surrounded by the great wine regions of Western and central Victoria, winemaker John Harris, works closely with growers in the Pyrenees, Macedon, and Ballarat wine regions to craft wines that display distinctive varietal expression and reflect individual vineyard, vintage and regional character.

Whilst studying immunology and microbiology at Monash University John fell in love with wine. 15 years later, having completed the Wine Science degree and working in wine retail as well as boutique and multi-national wine businesses here and abroad, John moved back to his home town of Ballarat in Western Victoria to team up with his wine loving in-laws the Mitchells, to create Mitchell Harris Wines.

From the classic Western Victorian pepper and spice in our Pyrenees reds to the cool climate focus and finesse of our Sabre sparkling, our wines give you a real glimpse into what makes the central and western Victorian wine growing regions so special.

Nestled in the hills just outside of Moonambel and at the end of the narrow, dusty and bumpy Wild Dog Track, is the Peerick Vineyard. The first Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz vines were planted in the 1990s. Planted on undulating slopes to maximise the abundant sunlight and to allow cool air movement from the surrounding hills, the shallow, rocky, and quartz laden soils provide an ideal site to ripen all varieties planted.

Selections are rounded out with interesting, personality driven reds and whites from Southern France and beyond, supported by a clutch of high quality small Australian, Italian, Slovenian and New Zealand producers.
