Phaedrus Estate spans 4 Hectares on the Mornington Penisula and currently grows 4 varieties of grapes, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Pinot Gris. These wines have been available in various restaurants, cafes and bottle shops around Sydney and Melbourne since late 1998, and continue to grow with 3000 cases of excellent wine having been produced in 2011.
Maïtèna grew up on a vineyard and Ewan had always appreciated wine so it was only natural that they became involved in the wine industry. On completing their degrees and after working for some of the largest wineries in the country they decided to strike out on their own and produce quality wines.
It was then, in late 1997, that Phaedrus Estate was established.
