Underground Winemakers was established in 2006 at Mt Eliza by former T’Gallant employees, Adrian Hennessy, Peter Stebbing, and Jonothan Stephens. At that time the venture had no resources other than a collective wine industry experience of over 30 years and a resourceful, hands on determination. The vision was simple; source the right grapes and make quality, approachable wines which are true to style and expressive of variety.
Following this philosophy, Underground is not restricted to a single region. The Mornington Peninsula provides Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, while Central and Northern Victoria supply Durif, Shiraz, Cabernet and Brown Muscat. All wines are made and bottled at the Mt Eliza Winery, giving Underground complete control over winemaking input. Packaging and presentation of the entire range is contemporary, designed to reflect both the quality of the wine and its individual character.
