James' Review

The Michelini family are among the best-known grapegrowers in the Buckland Valley of northeast Victoria. Having migrated from Italy in 1949, they originally grew tobacco, diversifying into vineyards in '82. The main vineyard, on terra rossa soil, is at an altitude of 300m, mostly with frontage to the Buckland River. The Devils Creek Vineyard was planted in '91 on grafted rootstocks, merlot and chardonnay taking the lion's share. A vineyard expansion program has seen the vineyards reach 60ha. Exports to China.

About this winery

Established in the early 1980's, Michelini Wines first commercial plantings in the Buckland Valley were developed under the watchful eye of family patriarch, Emo Michelini. Looking for a cool climate area for grape growing, Orlando approached Emo in the hope of working together to create a vineyard to produce Chardonnay for Orlando's growing Trilogy label.

With initial plantings in 1982 and further plantings in 1991 and as recent as 2017, today Michelini Wines owns and operates some mature 60 hectare vineyard in the Buckland Valley, near Bright in the areas GI - Alpine Valleys, producing some 1400 + tonnes of grapes annually.

Specialties

Cool climate Italian varietals are a favourite, particularly Pinot Grigio, Vermentino, and the award winning Northern Italian reds, Marzemino and Teroldego.
