About The Vineyard

Near the shores of Western Port on the Mornington Peninsula is Capella Vineyard, a small ultra-premium vineyard with 5.2 ha of Pinot Noir and 1.6 ha of Chardonnay planted on VSP trellis. The vines are hand pruned and hand harvested and we place an increasing emphasis on sustainable practices such as the use of compost mulch to increase soil health and biodiversity and reduce water usage. Soils are grey clay loam and there is a strong maritime influence, with moderating winds year-round. Planted in 2009, the vines have already produced several exceptional vintages. A new block of Pinot Noir was planted in 2015 with the aim of providing more clonal variation in the vineyard. The vines are planted around a lake that is home to a thriving community of resident and migratory birds, including our signature black swans.

Capella Vineyard is in a protected zone known as the "green wedge", a ring of environmentally-significant land surrounding Melbourne and often called the "lungs" of the city.
