Founded by one of Australia's great importers and distributors of wine, Robert Walters, Place of Changing Winds is an organic, high-density vineyard in a cute hamlet of Bullengarook in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria.
Changing Winds takes its name from the original inhabitants, the Wurundjeri people, who named the place where the vines are currently planted Warekilla (or Place of Changing Winds).
500 metres above sea level, the area is plentiful of ancient soils, teeming with quartz, quartzite, sandstone where only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is grown. The vines are planted very closely at a range of densities. Through lots of research and engagement Robert and team have developed their own version of organic practice, a model specifically adapted to their place and vision. This model is designed to produce wines of the highest possible quality and the maximum expression of place.
