Mount Pierrepoint Estate – Grampians Winery, Hamilton VIC
The estate is situated at the base of Mount Pierrepoint, so it experiences a cooler weather all year round. Also, there is an average rainfall of 700mm in this area. The property is rich in red buckshot soil, hence the vineyard soil is favourable for grape plantations.
Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris were the first two vines planted here and later, in 2001, the vineyard also planted Chardonnay vines.
The viticulturists at Mount Pierrepoint Estate always follow the methods of hand pruning and de-budding. This is because such processes allow the fruits to grow well and ripen perfectly.
The estate also features an extensive garden setting, and also boasts farm stay and B&B style accommodation for guests. Those looking for quaint holiday accommodation may want to explore the winery’s delightful lodging choices.
