Merindoc Vintners

Victoria | Heathcote

Our Review

Stephen Shelmerdine has been a major figure in the wine industry for over 25 years, like his family (who founded Mitchelton Winery) before him, and has been honoured for his many services to the industry. Substantial quantities of the grapes produced are sold to others; a small amount of high-quality wine is contract-made. The Merindoc and Willoughby Bridge wines are produced from the 2 eponymous estate vineyards in Heathcote. Exports to China. -JH


For three generations the Shelmerdine family has been at the forefront of the modern Victorian wine industry, and among Victoria’s most prominent grape growers. The family have a long history of managing high quality vineyards in Victoria, from the Nagambie Lakes region to the Yarra Valley and Heathcote.

Each estate vineyard is managed to produce sustainable, low yields for the highest quality possible. The Merindoc philosophy is simple; we employ our understanding of the site, soil, and the seasons to craft wines that express the unique characteristics of our vineyards, this inturn ensures wines with a true regional identity. -JH
