Preece was known as one of Australia’s masterful blenders with an unorthodox approach to wine making. His legacy will continue with the new PREECE collection under the helm of Mitchelton winemaking and viticultural team.

“As a fitting tribute to Victoria’s most decorated winemaker, the PREECE winemaking philosophy pays respect to time honoured techniques, yet will continue to evolve via the culture of innovation and imagination that the creation of modern wine styles demand.” Travis Clydesdale, Chief Winemaker

The 2016 vintage wines under the reinvigorated PREECE label, proudly sourced exceptional fruit from the estate, 47 years after those first plantings. The winemaking and viticulture team will be expanding the Victorian fruit sourcing in vintages to come, by creatively exploring some of the best patchwork of exciting sub regions, in search of highly expressive sites and the finest quality.
