Seville Estate


When Dr. Peter McMahon planted the first vines at Seville Estate in 1972, it marked the rebirth of the Yarra Valley as a premium wine region. Today, 35 years after Peter and his wife Margaret started the dream, their grandson, Dylan McMahon is now the winemaker following the passion ignited a generation before.

Situated on a ridge of red volcanic soil overlooking the upper Yarra Valley, the soils at Seville Estate are extremely fertile red to grey volcanic, over a clay base. The vines are substantially dry grown, as irrigation is only used when the vines are under extreme stress. The vines face north-east with an altitude of 200m above sea level. Vintage comes to Seville Estate much later than other areas in the Yarra Valley. The elevation provides cooler temperatures that achieve more consistent ripening with good fruit and spice aromas developing in the grapes.
