Vinea Marson's award winning cellar door experience brings a little bit of Italy here to Heathcote. At the Marson's family table, you will be able to explore winemaker Mario's old world Italian and French wines from Vinea Marson's Heritage & Estate ranges with antipasto and cheese from That's Amore Cheese.

Description

The Marson family continues a winemaking tradition of some four generations in Friuli, north-eastern Italy and Australia at its Heathcote vineyard, Vinea Marson.

Inspired by vintages in Piedmont and Tuscany, winemaker Mario Marson’s passion for Nebbiolo and Sangiovese saw him establish Vinea Marson on the rich Cambrian soil of the Mount Camel Range at Heathcote in 2000. The Estate’s Sotto and Sopra vineyards on the eastern slope proved the perfect place to grow these Italian varieties, with multiclonal plantings producing wines of depth and complexity. Mario’s desire to craft beautiful old world wines in the new world setting extends to classic French varietals that comprise the remainder of our Estate range: a food friendly Shiraz Viognier, elegant Viognier and a delicious, dry Rosato. These wines are complemented by the Heritage wines, which pays homage to the family’s history in Friuli by sourcing indigenous Italian varieties from the Alpine Valleys to produce a delicious Prosecco, a dry, multi-blend white, the Grazia, and an orange wine, the Friulano #7.

Join the Marsons at the Cellar Door to experience Vinea Marson’s wines the way they were intended – with food and in good company. Our tastings are held in true Italian style at the family table, with antipasti including cured meats, Italian cheese and our estate grown extra-Virgin olive oil available to purchase.

You may even have the opportunity to try the delicious Drunken Buffalo cheese made with Vinea Marson Nebbiolo skins by Melbourne cheesemaker Giorgio Linguanti.
