Mount Burrumboot Estate was born in 1999, when Andrew and Cathy Branson planted vines on the Home Block of the Branson family farm, "Donore", on the slopes of Mount Burrumboot, on the Mount Camel Range, above Colbinabbin, in the Heathcote wine region of Victoria Goldfields, in Melbourne Surrounds.

Originally the vineyard was just another diversification of an already diverse farming enterprise of cereals, prime lambs and irrigated clover hay. However, the wine bug soon bit Andrew and Cathy, and so a winery was established.

The first wine was made in 2001 by contract - however, 2002 vintage saw the first wine made by Cathy in the machinery shed, surrounded by headers and tractors. Very primitive, and the appearance of the new 50 tonne winery in August 2002 was greeted with great enthusiasm!
