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»
Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world wine.

Yelland Papps
The Yelland and Papps story perhaps doesn't fit in with the usual line spun by wineries in the Barossa - six generations of this, five generations of that

It is a story about new beginnings, a story about a young couple, with a young family, forging their own path within a wine region as first generation winegrowers. While not locals, there is a saying in the Barossa that you have to have a grand-parent in the ground before you are considered a local, Susan Yelland and Michael Papps call the Barossa home and are as passionate as any sixth-generation Barossan about the region, its vines and its history and its characters. Michael has lived in the Barossa for the past 20 years, working in the wine industry in a number of sectors from winery work to bottling lines and wife Susan, moved to the Barossa in 1999 from the Yorke Peninsula after time spent in Adelaide and New York studying at the Windows of the World wine school. Today Michael and Susan own a five acre property on the valley floor out side of Nuriootpa and have two young children, Peyton and Campbell.

Yelland Papps

With no prior study in winemaking they started producing wines from 2005, initially only for family and friends and Susan and Michael soon realised that their passion lay in the wines and vines of this famous region and Yelland & Papps was born.....and the passion runs deep. It encompasses not only the old-vine material of the Barossa, names familiar to all such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Mataro all make an appearance in the Yelland & Papps range. It's a passion for the future stars of the Barossa, varieties such as Vermentino, Carignan, Roussanne, Barbera, Dolcetto, Primitivo, varieties that are well-suited to Australia's most famous wine region and the proof is in a glass of Yelland & Papps wines.

Yelland & Papps embarked upon their ventures of winemaking in the right way, purely for their own enjoyment and for the appreciation of family and friends. They remain dedicated to sustainable agriculture, to a holistic vineyard management and minimal intervention in the winemaking.

They are passionate about running a small winery and living in a sustainable fashion, of using minimal inputs during the winemaking process to allow the fruit to speak in a clear voice, uncluttered by over zealous oak and a heavy hand. Passionate about the produce they farm, a visit to the charming Yelland & Papps cellar door will see you sampling their Delight, Devote and Divine wines but seasonal produce fresh from the property - walnuts, lentils, jams, terrines and vegetables are all on offer.
