About Mitchelton

The first crop of vines were planted here in 1969, and the winery named after the historic explorer Major Thomas Mitchell. The iconic 55-metre tower at Mitchelton, designed by Ted Ashton, features proudly on some of Mitchelton’s wine labels. We regularly re-plant the banks of the Goulburn River with native gums and grasses.

Our vineyards produce grapes not only in the Mitchelton Estate but also the famous Heathcote area, which are exclusively Shiraz plantings on the north-facing side of Mount Camel. From the rich, ochre-red ancient earth of the weathered Dookie Hills to the alluvial sands of the Goulburn Valley floor, this part of Victoria around Mitchelton is home to several wineries both distinctive and distinguished. The warmth of the region is softened by an abundance of lakes, billabongs and creeks, while the loose, sandy and gravelly soils typically produce generous yields without compromising colour or flavour.

The alluvial river sediments on which the Mitchelton Estate was founded come from the granite Strathbogie Ranges in the east, the mudstone sediments of the Graytown Hills, and the ancient marine deposits of the mountains to the south. The unique characteristics of these various soil types interact with our vine roots in a variety of ways, ultimately creating unique wines of great complexity.

Since its inception in 1969, Mitchelton has developed a proud history of quality amassed around our award winning wines crafted from our main vineyard in Nagambie. Today we also pick grapes from our Toolleen estate vineyard in Heathcote and source quality fruit from our grower partners across Victorian wine regions.
