For generations, Mandala had been a dream for the family as they had always wanted a place of their own where they could plant grapes, craft wines and enjoy them with friends and family. Their dream finally saw fruition when they planted the first ten acres of Pinot Noir saplings in the Yarra Junction region in the year 1999. As their vineyard gained popularity and progressed at a great pace, they decided to expand their business. In the year 2006, the move to Dixons Creek was made and combined with the Yarra Junction vineyard, Mandala was born. Yarra Valley being famous for exquisite wines, Mandala too earned recognition for its Shiraz, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc wines.
