When Dr Peter Mc Mahon planted the first vines at Seville Estate in 1972, it marked the rebirth of the Yarra Valley as a premium wine region. By the end of the that decade Dr Mc Mahon and his wife Margaret, along with producers such as Mount Mary, Yeringberg, Yarra Yering, St Huberts and the like were fashioning wines that served to re establish the lofty reputation the Yarra had enjoyed in the 19th century.
From its first vintage, Seville Estate quickly established itself as one of the Yarra Valleys finest producers. Surprisingly in a region more renowned for its red wines produced from Cabernet and Pinot Noir, its was the Seville Estate Shiraz that received the most attention quickly becoming one of Victorias most sought after wines Today 35 years after Peter and Margaret started the dream; Seville Estate enters its third phase. A new generation of the Mc Mahon family has also become involved in Seville Estate. Peter and Margaret’s grandson, Dylan McMahon is now the winemaker following the passion ignited a generation before.
The Seville Estate cellar door has recently reopened.
