Want to simplify your life? We’ve done it for you. Montevecchio wines need no long-winded jargonistic descriptions or pain-staking food matching advice. They’re just delicious drinks. All you have to decide is: white, red, pink or sweet?
We grow more kinds of grapes than you could poke a stick at, so instead of challenging your linguistic or memory skills we have simply chosen a mixed bag the best tasting grapes from our Heathcote vineyard, singled them out or thrown them all in together to make a collection of wines that tick all the boxes: School night? Mid-week pizza? BBQ on the deck? Fish and chips? Hot date? Plastic cup on the beach? Look no further. Montevecchio has all the answers.
Montevecchio wines are all about simplicity and fun, but never boring. Grown at our Heathcote vineyard in central Victoria, which is home to over 20 different Italian grape varieties, the name means old mountain referring to the Cambrian origins of the regions famous red soils.
The delicious and approachable Montevecchio wines are inspired by the everyday drinking wines of Italy. The streamlined range including a bianco, rosato, rosso and moscato are fresh and vibrant, designed to be enjoyed in their youth. The blends may change from vintage to vintage but the vibe stays the same.

Montevecchio Bianco is a co-fermented field blend made from vermentino, garganega, fiano, greco and a small percentage of moscato giallo.
Fragrant, fresh and fruity, this wine shows notes of white peach, cut red apple and zesty grapefruit. It is crisp yet giving on the palate with a clean dry finish. Enjoy extra chilled with some a summer spread.
Montevecchio Rosato is made from a new blend of 77% lambrusco maestri, and 23% Lagrein. Two rare varieties from Northern Italy co-fermented to create a pretty pink, delicious drop.
Plush red fruit and aromatic spice with a rose hip and a lingering finish make the rosato a good match for good company sunshine sips on the deck this summer.
Montevecchio Rosso is a co-fermented field blend made from a collection of loveable, red Italian varieties. This wine includes lagrein, nero d’Avola, sagrantino, schioppettino & refosco; an unlikely yet delicious bunch!
Aromas of vibrant raspberry and purple fruits are balanced perfectly with refreshing acidity. This light to medium-bodied wine has plenty of supple fruit, soft tannins and is designed to be enjoyed young.
Montevecchio Moscato is made from 100% Moscato Giallo, a superior moscato selection imported by Chalmers from _northern Italy.
This attractive refreshing, light and fruity wine has just a hint of spritz, allowing the bright sherbet, elderflower and honeysuckle flavours of the moscato giallo grape to take centre stage. It balances sweetness, acidity and alcohol perfectly in a style reminiscent of the great wines of Asti.
