Circe Wines, Mornington Peninsula

Circe is a partnership between Dan Buckle and Aaron Drummond inspired by growing up on the Mornington Peninsula and a shared love of Pinot Noir. Buckle and Drummond met while working at Mount Langi Ghiran back in 2007, and after a vintage making Shiraz, it was inevitable the conversation would turn to any varietal other than Shiraz. 

 

With both growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, the duo were keen and curious as to what they could do with Pinot Noir from such great soil, shortly after Circe Wines was born. 

 

While the highly regarded Dan Buckle is currently head winemaker for Domaine Chandon, he still finds time for his passion project, and the current vintages of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are certainly the most impressive Circe releases to date.
