About Elgee Park Wines
In 1958, the Myer family purchased Elgee Park. Initially it was dedicated to sheep grazing, however over the years the family diversified the property, introducing cattle, horses and a vineyard and saying goodbye to sheep in the late 1980s. The Myer family bought Elgee Park as a getaway for their growing family; a place where the children could play and the family could pursue varied interests. In 1958 there was only a home and a shed and on the undulating hills of Elgee Park. Over the years, the Myer family added a new home, stables, a vineyard and winery, an orchard, a quarter horse stud and more than 45 sculptures. Their adult children own nearby properties, continuing the family’s strong connection with this region of Victoria. (Website)
