Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale. It is now a place of fully mature vines and old world Burgundian techniques, sur lie et sauvage, barrel ferments and batonnage.

One of the finest and most interesting wines in Australia are the Morris Muscats. The unirrigated vines rely on natural rainfall. When very ripe at 16–18 baume, the grapes are hand picked, crushed and fermented on skins for 24 hours before draining and pressing the juice. The wine is topped up with spirit, and the fortified Muscat is matured in large oak casks ranging in size from 1,500 to 4,500 litres until blending. When blending occurs many different vintages are used in order to give lusciousness, richness, age and freshness.
