MaristwinesMarist Brothers Wines at The Hermitage

We are about to enter our 15th growing season and in early 2016 our 14th Harvest from the Marist Brothers vineyards at Mittagong. We have come a long way since the first planting of Pinot Noir in 1999 to the release of our first vintage port for the Centenary of the Hermitage. Visitors to the Hermitage are now greeted by rows of meticulously tended grapevines – drawing many parallels to the French origins of the Marist Brothers.

The cyclical nature of the vineyard; from budburst to harvest and dormancy; compliments the spirituality of the property and cycles within the church. During a period of uncertainty in the wine industry, Marist Brothers Wines remain strong due to the high quality of wines produced. The vineyard at Mittagong is a cool climate vineyard – meaning the grapes ripen longer on the vine. This allows for delicate and complex flavours to be produced and creates wines of unique character.

Wine more than any other commodity draws its flavours and character from the vineyard site where it was produced. Marist Brothers Wines provide a great opportunity for guests and members of the Marist Family to connect with the Hermitage property. The soil, climate, rainfall and location of the vineyard together create the flavour of the wine. Visitors are able to take away with them a part of the property – a year at Mittagong in a bottle.
