Curly Flat, Macdeon Ranges

Curly Flat is one of the true success stories of the Australian wine industry. Back in the early 1990's Jenifer Kolkka and Phillip Moraghan established the Curly Flat vineyard in the Macedon Ranges; a region they proudly proclaim as the coldest vineyard site anywhere in Australia.

The inspiration for Curly Flat Vineyard was Phillip Moraghan's experiences whilst studying in Switzerland in the 1980's. During this period he was captivated by the many wine regions of France and Switzerland and completely enthralled by Burgundy and its Pinot Noir.  

From the outset, they had a clear focus on vinifying world-class cool-climate Pinot Noir & Chardonnay. With a total 33 acres of hand tended vines, they and the Curly Flat team were committed to creating world-class wines that are an expression of both site and variety. 

Jenifer and Phillip were determined to build quality in every aspect of their operation and they poured every resource into their 'baby', Curly Flat without compromise in the pursuit of excellence in wine quality with little or no regard to short-term or even medium-term return on investment. 

As of late October 2017, Curly Flat is now owned and operated by Jenifer Kolkka along with Matt Harrop (ex Shadowfax) joining the team as Chief Winemaker to oversee the grape and wine production alongside our existing skilled team.
