Paradigm Hill is owned by Ruth Mihaly [viticulturist] and George Mihaly [winemaker], with the 10 acre vineyard planted in 1999/2000 in the cooler climate region of the Mornington Peninsula . The north facing gently sloping vineyard has very low density planting of only 500 vines per acre grafted onto vigour and phylloxera resistant rootstock. The trellis runs north-south with vines trained to VSP and a keen eye on ensuring a balanced vine. We are committed to using only estate grown grapes for on site production of pinot noir, shiraz, pinot gris and riesling. The vision for our four wines…. Achieve purity of varietal expression for each of our four wines whilst reflecting the distinction of our terroir.
