Our Story

Phaedrus Estate wasn’t always a mature vineyard with on site winery and friendly cellar door!

It started as a concept dreamed up by us  in our fourth year at Adelaide Uni way back in 1997. Starting out with a small overdraft we bought some barrels, tanks and grapes and started making wine under the Phaedrus label in 1998. We bought the property as a run down hobby-farm in 2000 and planted 5 acres of vineyard then built the cellar door in 2001 and the winery in 2004.

Since the beginning we haven’t lost site of the goal that started it all; to produce world-class wine from the Mornington Peninsula for the enjoyment of all!

Cheers, Ewan and Maitena
