A passion for fine wine is in the Scorpo blood, stretching across generations and geography – from Sicily to Sardinia and now Australia. Today, the Scorpo
family vineyard on Australia’s Mornington Peninsula combines old world practices with new world flavours. Scorpo Wines combines the family heritage
with expertise in growing premium grapes, meticulous attention to site selection, and a best practice approach to vineyard management and processes.
Paul has worked for over 25 years as a horticulturalist and landscape architect, and this professional and personal connection to the land has instilled the
importance of care and consideration for environments at Scorpo Wines. The Scorpo family has a strong connection to their vineyard – the unique land, soil
and climate are what enable them to produce distinctive wines with a sense of place. The wines are made to express the flavours of the new world, in the
style of the old world. Scorpo Wines have also undertaken significant research to inform the selection of the specific varietal clones used in the vineyard.
They make Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Shiraz, and look to the greats from the regions of Burgundy, Alsace and Côte-Rôtie for inspiration.
