Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands. The windswept maritime vineyards of little Portsea Estate yield the quality of Mornington that have to be experienced... Mornington's westernmost vineyards»
Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of Marsanne on the planet. Tahbilk's original rows of Shiraz are commonly cited as one of the great vineyards of the world, regularly sampled at international competitions against..

For over two centuries Moët et Chandon has been the leading winegrower in Champagne. It is also the largest purchaser of grapes. Moët et Chandon ensures the widest possible selection of growths to reflect all the nuances of Champagne's soil and climate. The quality of wine behind the Moët et Chandon label is due in no small part to the richness and diversity of these truly fabulous vineyards, made up almost exclusively of Premiers Crus and Grands Crus. To enjoy a glass of Moët & Chandon is to countenance pure pleasure.
Whilst the story of Moet Chandon dates back to the middle ages, it was not until an association with the Emperor Napoleon that Jean-Remy Moët became the most famous winemaker in the world, overwhelmed by international demand. To this day, spread out amongst a thousand hectares of the finest vineyards, Moet Chandon is the largest and most prestigious estate in Champagne, managing 200 of the 323 Crus of the region. The twenty eight kilometres of tranquil estate cellars are hewn out of the limestone stratas thirty metres directly below the historic estate Chateau at Epernay. Here the wines age slowly in naturally temperature controlled conditions within a network of galleries dating back to 1743.
Pale gold citrus hue, a fine effervescence. The epitome of subtlety, vinous without being green, buttery without being rich, tropically warm with a lime blossom attack. The palate is delicate and well balanced, creamy and rich, filling the tongue with highlights and leaving behind a sense of harmony, mellowness. Moët et Chandon is still today, and more than ever before, the symbol of pleasure, grandeur and pure celebration.

For over two centuries the House of Moet & Chandon has been growing it's vines in the Champagne region

Moet & Chandon is forever seeking to harness the riches of the unique terroir of Champagne and thus produce truly outstanding wines. In 1927, through the influence of Moet & Chandon, the Champagne vineyard was awarded an Appellation d'Origine, which subsequently became one of the first ever AOCs in 1935.

The history of vines in Champagne is inseparably linked to the deep chalk soil. It retains heat from the sun and moisture from the rain which it relases gradually, acting as a natural regulator. The symbiosis of grape and climate continues as the wine matures in the maze of the centuries-old chalky cellars.

The grape varieties grown are eminently suited to the climate and soil, and reflect the unique growing conditions. Chardonnay gives the blend freshness, elegance, finesse and vivacity. Pinot Noir provides fruitiness, body, strength and persistence. Pinot Meunier offers roundness and bouquet which admirably complement the other two.

Mild Atlantic breezes alternate with continental rigours. The Champagne vineyards, the most northerly in France, are regularly threatened by storms, hail and late frosts. The grapes mature slowly in this climate and by transcending these factors, the wonder of champagne is born.

All great wines are the product of the perfect union of soil and climate. But in Champagne, the human factor is more vital than in any other winegrowing area. Over the course of the centuries, Moet & Chandon winegrowers have held their own in the face of tumultuous historic events and the whims of nature. They have fashioned the soil and vines into exemplary vineyards. Moet & Chandon scientists and oenologists are at the leading edge of viticultural research.

Moet & Chandon wines are produced by a team of some ten oenologists, each with complementary experience acquired in a range of wine-growing regions around the world. The driving forces behind the team are its shared expertise, its combined sensitivities and its ongoing commitment to keeping abreast with trends, in particular through travelling and meeting with fellow wine experts.

Indeed, it is this guiding aim which determines the oenologists' decisions on which, in turn, the wine's final shape will depend.

The assemblage or blend of grape varieties is critical in determining the champagne's distinctive style. It is largely during this phase of the production process that a unifying character emerges, the complete, well-rounded and radiant personality which distinguishes all of Moet & Chandon's wines. The range from which the team can choose includes over 150 crus from the house's own vineyard as well grapes purchased from other wine growers. The three Champagne varieties, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, continue to be the wine's mainstays, offering their complementary features and specific synergies.
