Mount Towrong Vineyard is a small family owned and operated vineyard, nestled in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria.
Migrating from the Veneto region of Italy, the Cremasco family have brought with them their love of food and wine, and this passion continues today.
George and Deirdre began planting in 1996 with 2 varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In 1999, they added Nebbiolo and in 2005 they planted Prosecco.
Situated at 600 metres above sea level with direct views of Mount Macedon and Mount Towrong, this cool climate vineyard enjoys moderate seasonal rainfall. Terracing the vineyard has allowed us to maximise the use of the gentle slopes and by practising sustainable farming techniques, we have been able to harvest high quality grapes with a low yield.
All estate grown grapes are hand picked and the vines are hand pruned via cane pruning. Viticulturist Adam Paleg, oversees all aspects of the vineyard, striving to maintain the health of the vines, to ensure that the grapes harvested, are of the best quality, so that winemaker Laura Sparrow, can produce our wines to the highest quality.
We are continually striving to ensure we are growing the best possible fruit and improving the quality of our wines for your enjoyment.
