Winery Philosophy

Mountford Wines was established in 1987.

One of the first wineries in the region, it quickly gained a reputation for the high quality of its wines. In 1992 Mountford Wines won the first show award for the region, with its Sauvignon Blanc.

With the continued success of the wines Sue & Andrew Mountford went on to build the first Winery with Cellar door and Gallery. This two storey construction sculptured from hand made adobe bricks sourced and made on site, has become an icon of the region and in 1995 received the coveted Sir David Brand Award for Tourism.

Having been involved in the organic industry in the United Kingdom, Andrew Mountford continued to employ organic principles in the winery. This involved gravity fed cellar operations and minimal filtering and pumping, maintaining the integrity of the fruit grown in the vineyard and caretaking this quality to the bottle, again capturing the essence of place.

In 2001 Saxon Mountford fresh from studying Wine Science at Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, took over the wine making role. It didn't take long for both Andrew and Saxon to turn these practices into an accredited reality and in 2003 Mountford Winery became the first National Association for Sustainable Agricture Accredited (NASAA) organic winery in the region with the vineyard soon following in 2006.
