Mitchell Harris / Pyrenees And Ballarat, Vic
Cool Climate Stylings From One Of The Most Passionate Advocates For Victorian Wine
Famed for an excellent wine bar and cellar door venue in Ballarat, Mitchell Harris is a multi-faced wine business of two families. The affable John Harris earned his winemaking stripes as chief sparkling winemaker of Domaine Chandon before the families launched their own operation in 2008, becoming Ballarat’s first true food and wine destination, underpinned by a smart, small batch wine label.
Long standing relationships with good growers have been maintained, most notably with the Peerick vineyard in the gorgeous Victorian Pyrenees. Winemaking ethos is of contemporary minimal handling, with a leaning to wild ferments, considered use of French oak, and gentle extraction. The wines are stylistically clean and pure, with John Harris a renowned tireless campaigner in the promotion of Victoria’s wines and regions.
