The vineyard and winery were established in 1991 by Anthony and Pauline Miceli, after a search for a cool area with suitable slopes, aspect, and soils for the production of ultimate quality wines from the Burgundian varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Pinot Grigio was added in 1997.
For Anthony this was the culmination of a dream that evolved from a love of wine and a love of plants and nature, since childhood.
For Pauline this was a continuation and renewal of her deep connection with rural life from her upbringing in a small country town.
Between them the plan was to raise a family together and establish a winery, small enough to allow personal attention to crafting the finest wines but big enough to be a fully self supporting, profitable enterprise, and not just a toy.
