Along with the core Chalmers range of wines, we also produce the following brands.
Chalmers wines are the result of years of experimentation and refinement, from the soil to the bottle, Australian wines which pay respect to their continental heritage.
Where the Chalmers range is all about unique and detailed expression of variety, site and vintage, Montevecchio is just about good drinks. Based on style rather than variety, this concise range of everyday drinking wines have fun and flair at their heart.
Where all the fun happens. Every year Chalmers makes experimental wines from the nursery source blocks in Merbein as well as the every growing Heathcote plantings. Not to be locked away in the lab – these wines are made public and can be found in a wine bar or indie bottle shop near you. You can’t miss the colourful labels.
Dott. is handmade by Chalmers from estate grown fruit. Inspired by the late Dr. Rod Bonfiglioli a passionate, eccentric scientist whose dogged determination and visionary foresight brought so much colour, interest and integrity to Australian wine. He sought out these rare grapes for our collection, seeing their promise long before we did, and for that we are grateful.
When your main business is as left field as the eclectic and diverse work with Italian varieties at Chalmers, what do you do for a side project? Sisters Kim and Tennille decided to make a Heathcote Shiraz, but in the style of red that they enjoy.
After Chalmers imported 6 clones of Malbec selected from Mendoza in Argentina 15 years ago Bruce Chalmers has been passionate about making great Malbec. Arturo is his baby.
