Winemaker Simon Black and our award-winning winemaking team develop wines for three labels from vineyards across the Mornington Peninsula. Their focus is to create wines of exemplary quality and character, utilising winemaking techniques that complement the unique qualities derived from our vineyards, in a style that reflects each vineyard site.
Montalto’s three wine labels – Pennon Hill, Montalto Estate and our Single Vineyard range – are drawn from five different vineyards across the Mornington Peninsula.
Montalto winemaker Simon Black explains how the wines relate: “To use an analogy, the Single Vineyard wines are like the principal soloists in an orchestra; each is unique in their offering. Years of innovative trial work in the winery has given us the knowledge required to capture the hallmark qualities and personality from these sites.
“The Estate wines are more like the orchestra, where all the musicians come together to create a multilayered symphony. These wines are crafted from our best parcels of fruit from our vineyards across the Peninsula.
“The Pennon Hill wines are all about drinkability. They showcase all the qualities that the Mornington Peninsula is best known for – perfume, purity, varietal expression and brightness.”
Montalto has a range of wine experiences. From our Pinot Lovers Road Trip, taking in the different vineyards across the Mornington Peninsula, to our Perfect Pairing experience in Alto Wine Room, there is an experience out of the ordinary for you and your loved ones.
