In 1982, Pamela and Richard Austin purchased a small 5 acre block in Waurn Ponds, Victoria. Over the years, this passion developed and grew into a desire to make wine for not only friends, but for the general public as well.
In 1990 they made the decision to expand, purchased 800 acres in the Moorabool Valley and set about planting a new vineyard. Over the course of five years they established 150 acres of vines, and Austins & Co. was born.
For more than thirty years, the Austin family’s bold venture has crafted Pinot Noir for the people, as well as Riesling, Chardonnay and Shiraz to be seriously shared.
