In dawn’s embrace, where light and shadow merge,
We tread among the vines, a laughter-filled surge.
Vermentino whispers, Sangiovese sings,
A tapestry of tales each grape cluster brings.

“Are we jesters in nature’s grand play?
Or poets, crafting verses from clay?”
Ricky might quip, with a grin so sly,
In every grape, a hidden joke does lie.

So, to the vineyard’s charm, we raise our glass,
A toast to moments, both present and past.
In each bottle, a universe, in each sip, a story,
A blend of laughter, labor, and transient glory.

🍇 “What did the 2017 Sangiovese wine say to the 2024 Sangiovese grape still dangling on the vine? ‘Oh, look at you, still clinging to your vine like a nervous kid on the first day of school. Mate, I’ve been through the aging process, got bottled up, and even experienced a bit of life in someone’s cellar. You? You’re just sitting there, soaking up sun, thinking you’re the next big thing in the wine world. Listen, until you’ve been squished, fermented, and actually sipped by someone who pretends to understand wine, you’re just fancy grape juice. So, hang in there, kid. Maybe one day you’ll have a character, but until then, you’re just a hopeful note in a wine enthusiast’s dream diary.’ #exploreheathcote #sangiovese #sangiovesewine #sangioveselovers #italianvino #italianwine #italianwinelover #mcivorestate #heathcotewineandfoodfestival #heathcotewinegrowers #vineyard #wineryhumor #shutuphugh #melbournewine #melbournefoodie ...

The Story Of McIvor

Mcivor Estate was established in 1997 on a spectacular grazing property at the southern end of the Heathcote Wine Region, McIvor Estate has been developed, within the imposing gullies of the Great Dividing Range.

Our vineyard and olive grove thrive in the sought-after granitic soils, amongst the dramatic scenery of large ashen boulders and majestic rolling hills. The property has yielded some amazing award-winning wines, and is home to a small herd of beef breeding cows. It has been a pioneer in growing alternate grape varieties in the Heathcote wine region with the oldest plantings of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Marsanne.

The vineyard and olive grove have been modelled after a traditional Italian mixed farm.
