Through the late 1980s a tasting group of wine enthusiast mates, all who had worked in wine retail in Melbourne, often tossed around the idea of purchasing of a vineyard. It will come as no surprise that it was generally late in the evening, over a glass of pinot noir, when conversation turned in this direction.
In 1996, an opportunity to purchase an existing Geelong vineyard presented itself. Whilst this purchase ultimately faltered, the genie was out of the bottle and 5 blokes financed the purchase, making and bottling of a 1997 Provenance Geelong Chardonnay, all of which was sold in the UK.
From early genesis to today, Provenance has always had the one simple objective: to make great wines that exhibit the fruit quality and terroir of special vineyards.
