Traveller Magazine review

Hi All

Andrew Bain from Traveller magazine has just written a review of the Grampians including Mountainside Wines and our accommodation, The Blue House.  He has done a great job showcasing the area and some of the terrific places people can visit.

Yappy Hour TV

Yappy Hour TV came to Mountainside Wines to film a segment for their show about anxiety in dogs.   Here I am with Tony Knight, international dog listener, who is giving me lots of tips and hints to help when Hunter feels she has to protect me.  Yappy Hour airs on 4ME from mid March although I don’t know when our segment will be on.  Lots of fun and good advice.

We bottle the 2015 Nebbiolo and the 2015 Shiraz on Monday so that we can harvest over the next few weeks.  Massive job with eight pallets of bottles sitting in the winery waiting for all that lovely goodness to go into them.  We have already tasted the Nebbiolo and it’s very reminiscent of last year’s Nebbiolo with a light ruby in colour with fresh cherry and raspberry aromas and flavours with a long clean finish.  Can’t wait to taste the Shiraz.

Netting the vineyard

It’s been a busy few weeks.  Shane and I have spent the last few weeks preparing to put the nets on the vines.  We’ve been up and about early to avoid the worst of the heat and as you can see by our photo we have spent a lot of time enjoying the place, not just working.

We have been tucking the canopy growth up under the trellis wires to let the sun in and air flow round the bunches of grapes.  It also makes it easier when the nets go on and protect the grapes from birds.  20151228_194856

To all our friends and supporters,

we wish you a very merry Christmas and

a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016

Christmas is fast approaching with little time left to shop.  If you’re having trouble choosing something for the person who has everything, why not try a bottle of wine.

Here at Mountainside Wines we produce premium wines from vineyards that are hand tended and hand-picked.  This allows us to focus on quality and consistency of flavour.  All our wines are made using grapes from a single vineyard and showcase the best of our terroir.  With warm days, cool nights, and a long growing season it means wines produced in our little corner of the Grampians are rich and full of flavour and aroma and represent a unique picture of the area.

We have partnered with WithWine, an app that allows you to place your order, pay for it and have it delivered within a few days.

To celebrate this partnership, we have created the Santa Special.  This is an opportunity to taste all of our wines and for every six bottle Santa Special you purchase you will get a bottle of our best, the 2013 Reserve Shiraz at no cost.  Order a dozen bottles and get two bottles of the 2013 Reserve Shiraz.

Download the app today and you can order straight away.  Too easy!

Wine can also be ordered via our Order page.  You can pay via Paypal or EFT.  Download the order form, fill it out and email it to and let us know how you paid.  We will deliver your wine within a few days.
