Scorpo has for some time sat comfortably within the highest rank of Australian cool-climate winegrowers, quietly composing excellent wines and steadily raising the bar year upon year. The vineyard rolls over red/brown, clay-rich soils derived from tertiary Eocene volcanics dating back about 40 million years. The vines are planted at an altitude of between 70 and 100m on a north- to northeast-facing slope with a 10% gradient. It’s a brilliant suntrap with ideal drainage to slowly grow and ripen grapes.
Fine wine is in the Scorpo blood, stretching across generations and geography – from Sicily to Sardinia and now Australia. The Scorpo family has a strong connection to their vineyard – the unique land, soil and climate are what enable them to produce distinctive wines with a sense of place. Paul and wife Caroline searched for four years to find the ideal site for their vineyard. Having extensively researched the Mornington Peninsula’s cool, maritime microclimates, they realised that this area was the perfect place for their project.
On Thursday 15th April we'll welcome Paul Scorpo to The Oak Barrel tasting room for a unique masterclass on the Scorpo wines, tasting through 8 different expressions as well as discuss the history and style of Scorpo wines and the Mornington Peninsula
