WELCOME TO CHALMERS

These varieties are proprietary clones patented by their owners in Italy. If you grow these varieties you need to enter into a non-propagation contract which means you can't take cuttings or propagate from your vineyards. For more information on the Non-Propagation agreement which covers these varieties see the below form.

From 2017 Chalmers will be providing a boutique nursery service to the Australian wine industry once again. Watch this space for more information on ordering vines from Chalmers including the impending release of the 11 new cultivars recently arrived from Italy.
The Chalmers family’s commitment to innovation
and excellence has made them a pivotal force in
the Australian wine scene for almost 30 years.
Their work in the field of alternative, particularly southern Italian varietals - in both the vineyard and marketplace - has been a substantial contribution to the growth and success of this movement in recent years.
Improving Australian vine material stocks is an ongoing passion for the family, with a new shipment of previously unavailable Italian vine selections including Falanghina, Pecorino and Ribolla Gialla having been received at the vineyards in 2015.
The Chalmers range of Italian variety wines, which includes Vermentino, Fiano, Rosato, Nero d’Avola, Aglianico and Sagrantino, is made with sustainability, diversity, authenticity and quality at the core of it’s philosophy.
The Chalmers family also produce
wines, a line of fun, everyday-drinking Italian style field blends as well as
Le Sorelle Shiraz
from their Heathcote plantings.
Continually exploring new territory with the creation of project wines, in recent vintages Chalmers have made a passito dessert wine, a dry sparkling red lambrusco and a rustic vino nuovo.
Most recently the nursery block at Merbein has given rise to the small batch, handmade
Chalmers Project & #bucketwine
vinification project which is exploring grass roots winemaking with no tools, additions or filtration.
These wines are the result of years of experimentation and refinement, from the soil to the bottle, Australian wines which proudly display their continental heritage.
