Elan Vineyard

Visit this small family run vineyard of 2.5ha in Balnarring.

You can sit and sip in the Rotunda overlooking the vineyard, while your children can enjoy themselves in the playground.

The name Elan was inspired by our desire to produce premium wine made with flair from grape varieties both classic and unusual.

We make estate grown, hand crafted, small quantities of special wines.

Our Story

Elan Vineyard: Planted in the early 1980’s on a north-easterly slope in Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula.

The vineyard is 2.5 hectares in size, 110 meters above sea level protected by tree lines but still receiving cooling southerly breezes. The Vineyard is not irrigated and low yielding.

Our viticultural practices expose our fruit to dappled sunlight and thus maximize our fruit quality. Winemaking is one of limited interference, using wild yeast to produce wines that reflect our vineyard site.

Our desire to produce premium wines from grape varieties both classic and unusual gave us the inspiration for our estate name-“Elan”. To achieve our goal with passion and “flair”. We make estate grown, hand crafted, small quantities of exceptional wines.
