Pimpernel Vineyards, nestled in the esteemed Yarra Valley, epitomises the culmination of passion and tradition, inspired by the winemaking heritage of France's Burgundy, Rhône, and Loire Valleys. Founded by Mark and Fiona Horrigan in 2001, the vineyard was meticulously planted with an array of varietals that thrive in the Yarra Valley's unique terroir. With a philosophy centred on intensive land management and minimal intervention winemaking, Pimpernel Vineyards is dedicated to crafting elegant and distinctive wines that reflect the essence of their terroir, including Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Viognier among others.

The vineyard's winemaking journey is deeply rooted in a familial connection to viticulture, further enriched by the expertise of winemaker Damien Archibald. Under his guidance, Pimpernel's wines are produced with a focus on old-world methods, yielding wines of complexity and distinction. This dedication to quality and heritage is reflected in the vineyard's careful nurturing of the land, ensuring the production of premium fruit and, subsequently, wines that are a true expression of the Yarra Valley.
