Pennyweight Winery was established by Stephen and Elizabeth Morris in 1982.

Stephen Newton Morris, winemaker at Pennyweight Winery, and owner with his family, has had his skills passed down from great-grandfather, George Francis Morris, who established the first Morris winery at Rutherglen in 1860.

Every grape lovingly selected for this wine has been hand-picked. Stephen will not allow machine harvesting.

Instead, the Morris family pick by hand in the cool hours of the morning, carefully lowering the grapes into buckets that are taken straight to the winery for processing.

Fine wines must be aged in oak barrels, not steel. The Pennyweight wines rest in the dark in oak casks, some of them brought out from Spain in the 1930s.

Stephen Morris is proud of Pennyweight's organically-grown, luscious fruit, grown in a superb Beechworth climate, and takes unbelievable care that true wine bouquets and unique flavours are locked away in each bottle.

Pennyweight Winery is a warm, friendly, family winery, managed by Stephen and Elizabeth and their three sons, Frederick, Stephen and Charles.
