In 1991 Neil Prentice and family established their Moondarra Vineyard in Gippsland, planted to 11 low-yielding clones of pinot noir. The vines are not irrigated, and vineyard management is predicated on the minimum use of any sprays with the aim of ultimately moving to Biodynamic/Pagan farming methods. The winemaking techniques are strongly influenced by the practices of controversial Lebanese-born Burgundy consultant Guy Accad, with ten days pre-fermentation maceration and whole bunches added prior to fermentation. The wines are distributed in Melbourne and Sydney by Select Vineyards.
