Mt Napier Wines
Owned by Chris and Josephine O’Connor-Ward, Mount Napier Wines is a small winery located amongst the Western District farmland in the Henty Wine Region. Only ten minutes from Hamilton and five minutes from Tarrington, the winery specialises in Shiraz and Pinot Noir and is set in the gorgeous country side with views of Mount Napier which is only 15km away.
Described by Chris as a weekend folly and passion rolled in 2ha of inspiration, exasperation, perspiration and occasionally exhilaration, their journey to wine making began in 1999 when 1.2ha of shiraz, 0.8ha of pinot noir and a small quantity of viognier was planted.
The grapes are hand-picked by family and friends, and vinified in the small winery onsite by Chris.
To enjoy a drop of Mount Napier Wines orders can be placed online or direct with the growers over the phone.
