Seville Estate was founded by Dr Peter and Margaret McMahon in 1972. After several changes of ownership, Yiping Wang purchased the property in early 2017. Yiping is a wine retailer in the Guangxi province of China. Yiping’s supportive yet hands-off approach has allowed winemaker and general manager Dylan McMahon (grandson of founder Peter McMahon) to steer the ship. The estate has expanded to encompass the neighbouring vineyard and property (formerly Ainsworth Estate). This extra land has allowed for replanting original vine material grafted onto rootstock to preserve the original 1972 clones and safeguard the future of this unique property. Seville Estate also has luxury accommodation with the original homestead and 3 self-contained apartments. Exports to the US, Canada and China.
Founded in 1972 by Dr Peter and Margaret McMahon, Seville Estate has been at the forefront of the modern Yarra Valley wine movement for 40 years. Today the winery is managed by Dylan McMahon, who joined Seville Estate in 1998 following the passion ignited by his grandparents a generation before. While other wineries plant in proven grounds, Seville Estate’s roots are set in the soil of the Upper Yarra Valley in the foothills of Mount Dandenong at an elevation of 200m. Seville Estate is just an hour’s drive from Melbourne, off the Warburton Highway (B380) and away from the valley crowds. The Upper Yarra’s distinctive macro climate comes to life in the glass, showing perfumed and delicate characters that Seville Estate wines have become known for.
