Chapter One

Montrose Wines was established in 1974 in Mudgee, NSW, close to the home of Australian poet Henry Lawson. Its first stage was completed just in time for wines to be made from the 1975 season. The first vigneron employed by Transfield did not last long, as he found difficult to deal with temperamental Italians.
