Renowned for producing some of the best Shiraz in Australia, the Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard is breathtakingly beautiful throughout the year (year round). This stunning location is the ideal place to enjoy your wine tasting experience. In our architect designed cellar door – with its sweeping views across the Shiraz vines to the mountain – you will feel the extraordinary sense of place encapsulated in our wine.
Mountainside Wines is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery which is situated at the base of Mount Cole at the south eastern end of the Grampians wine region.
We produce premium wines from vineyards that are hand tended and hand-picked. This allows us to focus on quality and consistency of flavour. All our wines are made using grapes from a single vineyard and showcase the best of our terroir.
Here at Mountainside Wines we have warm days, cool nights, and a long growing season. We also have unique soil conditions of granite loam over red clay allowing the flavours of Shiraz to shine in the wine. This means that the wines produced in our little corner of the Grampians are rich and full of flavour and aroma and represent a unique picture of the area.
The property itself has been growing grapes and making wine since 1998 with just under seven acres of Shiraz vines, two and one-half acres of Viognier vines, and one acre of Nebbiolo vines. The vines produce approximately 1000 cases per year and we focus on making premium wines.
Dogrock has been a labour of love for Allen and Andrea Hart since they first purchased the property in 1998. Vineyard planting started in 2000 and varieties included Shiraz, Riesling, Grenache, Chardonnay and Tempranillo. More recently, Iberian varieties such as Graciano, Touriga Nacional, Arinto and Azal have been added along with the Italian white Fiano. A visit to cellar door will find you talking to either Allen or Andrea and they boast a collective 25 years industry experience from the winemaking world.
