Vines were first planted in the Grampians post the gold rush, by a couple of Frenchmen in 1858. In 1970 to McRae family established Montara vineyards on the eastern slopes of Mount Chalambar and released their first wines in 1977. The vines are planted in well drained, rich red loam soil over a gravel and shale base. The plantings of Shiraz, Pinot and Riesling are all over 40 years of age.
