The History of
Pandemonium Estate

Land purchased

Our land was purchased in 2007 with only Pedro Ximenez vines on the site. Over the years since we have planted many more varieties and built the cellar door. Quite the transformation! 

First vintage

Our first vintage was produced and sold. ‘The Beast’, as we named it, was a 60/40 blend of Shiraz and Grenache grapes.

House built

Our home was built right next to the vineyard. It makes the commute so much easier and means we can always keep an eye on things!

Cellar door opens

We opened our doors to the public for the first time. With a capacity for 55 people, we have since welcomed thousands of customers and loved every minute.

“The most rewarding part of what I do is seeing the smile on the customers faces when they try our wines for the first time”
