About The Winery
Symphonia Wines is located in the King Valley wine region of Victoria.
The vineyard is at Myrrhee, in a picturesque tributary valley of the
main King River system. Originally planted in the 1990's by visionary winemaker Peter
Read who realised that the climate and soils were
ideal for growing then un-heralded varieties from cool regions of the
world. He planted Pinot Grigio (Northern Italy), Saperavi (Georgia),
Tannat and Petit Manseng (Pyrenees region of France), Temperanillo
(Northern Spain), and Albarino (now known as Savagnin from North Western
Spain) along with small areas of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
In 2005, Peter Read sold the vineyard to the present owners, Peter
and Suzanne Evans who continue championing these unusual varieties.
