Vinea Marson

Victoria | Heathcote

Our Review

Owner-winemaker Mario Marson spent many years as the winemaker/viticulturist with the late Dr John Middleton at the celebrated Mount Mary. Mario has over 35 years of experience in Australia and overseas, having undertaken vintages at Isole e Olena in Tuscany and Piedmont and at Domaine de la Pousse d’Or in Burgundy, where he was inspired to emulate the multi-clonal wines favoured by these producers, pioneered in Australia by John Middleton. In '99 he and his wife, Helen, purchased the Vinea Marson property on the eastern slopes of the Mt Camel Range. They have planted shiraz and viognier, plus Italian varieties of sangiovese, nebbiolo, barbera and refosco dal peduncolo. Marson also sources northeastern Italian varietals from Porepunkah in the Alpine Valleys. -JAMES HALLIDAY

Cellar Door


Join the Marson family at the Cellar Door to experience Vinea Marson’s wines the way they were intended – with food and in good company. 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. The delicious Drunken Buffalo cheese made with Vinea Marson Nebbiolo skins by Melbourne cheesemaker Giorgio Linguanti from That’s Amore Cheese is a highlight. In late 2020, the family will officially launch a Tuscan Garden overlooking the vineyards, with a bocce court, wine tastings and antipasto plates al fresco.
