Mermerus Vineyard is situated at Drysdale, near Geelong on the Eastern slopes of the Bellarine Peninsula, in Southern Victoria with views of Pope's Eye and Port Phillip Bay.

The naturally cool and dry climate, and the influence of prevailing winds from Bass Strait to the south produce naturally low yielding vines with intense and elegant fruit flavours. Wine making is done on site at the winery and the grapes are sourced mainly from the estate, with a small amount of fruit from local vineyards being used in some years.

Traditional labour intensive winemaking techniques aim to preserve the essential fruit character of the vineyard. Indigenous (wild) yeast fermentation plays a major part in the production of Mermerus wines. Intense and delicate fruit characters are encouraged by hand picking and gentle handling in small lots.

The aim of oak maturation where used is to add an extra dimensionand balance to the wines rather than as a dominating influence.


was established in 1996, and occupies part of the eastern slope of Murradoc Hill on the Bellarine peninsula.
