Scorpo Wines is a whole family operation: Paul Scorpo, his wife Caroline and their daughters all help keep the family traditions ofgood wine and a love of the land alive through this project.
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’s interest in wine started at a young age and both he and Caroline have been involved in the industry since 1973. In the early 90s, Paul and Caroline decided to look for a place for their own wine project. Their research into terroir and climate, as well as a love of the district, grown through family holidays, pointed to Mornington Peninsula as the ideal spot to grow and make the kinds of cool climate grapes and wines that Scorpo Wines is now known for. It took four years to find the perfect site for the vineyard; planting began in 1997 and the label was launched in 2002. Scorpo Wines became a reality.
Scorpo Wines are developing vintage to vintage, and are sold in some of Australia’s best restaurants and retailers. Since 2005 James Halliday has consistently awarded Scorpo Wines with a 5 star rating. The site itself also continues to evolve, with exciting plans for the future including a cellar door.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Scorpo Wines family.
