Mike Fitzpatrick acquired a taste for fine wine while a Rhodes scholar at Oxford University in the '70s. Returning to Australia he guided Carlton Football Club to 2 premierships as captain, then established Melbourne-based finance company Squitchy Lane Holdings. The wines of Mount Mary inspired him to look for his own vineyard and in ’96 he found a vineyard of sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon, planted in ’82, just around the corner from Coldstream Hills and Yarra Yering. -JAMES HALLIDAY
