Winemaker John Harris' move from Yarra Valley legend Domaine Chandon, back home to the Pyrenees, was the perfect opportunity for wine-loving families to join together to create Mitchell Harris Wines.

Mitchell Harris Wines is a small but energetic family venture, where there is a great belief in the potential of the region to deliver beautiful fruit. Mitchell Harris Wines source grapes around the home base of Ballarat, including the Macedon and Pyrenees Ranges, and try to have a small footprint in winemaking, letting the fruit, the region and the vintage speak for themselves.

It's a true family business, with John, Shannyn, Alicia and Craig all pitching in, whether that be in the vineyards, the winery, at the tasting bench, behind the computer or pounding the pavement as part of the Mitchell Harris team. The great Wine Bar team share the love of wine, food and good times.

Exciting times are in store in 2014, with the Cellar Door and Wine Bar gaining a loyal following, a big vintage ahead, and all wines keeping on finding homes in more and more restaurants, bars, stores and glasses across Australia.
