Nestled in the hills on the outskirts of Mudgee, Montrose is the region’s pre-eminent winery. Montrose was established in 1974 by Carlo Salteri and Franco Belgiorno-Nettis, Italian engineers with a love of fine wine. The Italian connection continued with the appointment of Italian born and trained winemaker Carlo Corino in 1976.In the early 1990s Montrose pioneered Australian Chardonnay internationally, having the number-one selling Chardonnay in the USA, a reflection of Mudgee’s early adoption and success with the variety. Meanwhile, Montrose winemakers developed the multi award winning Stony Creek Chardonnay, noteworthy for its terrific structure and extraordinary ability to age.
Now in his thirteenth vintage at the winery, winemaker James Manners has crafted many award-winning wines for Montrose and is passionate about Mudgee’s unique terroir and its influence on the wines. Today, as the region’s largest winery, Montrose combines traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology and equipment to produce exemplary regional wines under the ownership of the famous Oatley winemaking family.
