Welcome to Mount Monument

WE MAKE SMALL BATCH SINGLE ESTATE WINES FROM OUR HIGH ALTITUDE VINEYARD IN THE MACEDON RANGES, AUSTRALIA’S COOLEST VITICULTURAL REGION.

Only an hour's drive from Melbourne, Mount Monument offers an unspoiled environment to produce long-lived complex wines from the varieties Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

At approximately 630m the vineyard's rare volcanic silica soils and mature vines find expression within our wines. Melbourne architect Nonda Katsalidis acquired the property in 2008 and embarked on major trellis redesign, olive grove planting and land regeneration works.

Under viticulturist John Heitmann and wine maker Ben Ranken, the wines are made to reflect the unique soils that grace the slopes ensuring our wines show provenance and are the highest quality achievable.

'When making Mount Monument wines, the quality of the fruit is exceptional.  This is reflected as purity and length in the Riesling, and as complexity and subtlety in the Chardonnay. The hallmark of Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir is purity of acid and tannin balance, and Mount Monument has this in abundance.'
