Important news! - Vineyard and business closed

In September 2018, after 30 years of being involved in the wine industry in Geelong, establishing and operating our vineyard and winery formerly known as "Moorabool Estate", more recently as "Paradise IV", we are relucantly informing you of the close of our vineyard and business.

Graham and I wish to retire, and with no takers to continue the tradition at Paradise IV, with or without Doug Neal our wine-maker, closing the business is our only option as unbelievable as it seems to us all.

We have very limited stocks of 2015 Chaumont and 2016 Chaumont available. We expect all the stock depleted by July when the website will be shut down so this is your final opportunity to purchase any of the remaining 2015 and 2016 red wines.

Our 2017 and 2018 grape harvest we sold to Doug who has made the wine off-site. Doug will be selling the wine under the Paradise IV label - the very last estate grown wine available under this label. To purchase this wine Doug's contact email is dougneal@bigpond.net.au or mobile 0407 116 004.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our most sincere gratitude and appreciation for everyone's support over all the years - friends, retail customers and private clients.

We are very proud of what we created and achieved at Paradise IV. Being able to consistently increase the wine quality due to vineyard management and wine-making skills all resulted in exceptional wine and exceptional reviews.

However, without your continued support and enthusiasm our successes would not have been at all possible.

We hope that the legacy of Paradise IV continues to provide a memorable experience to you all in the years to come by way of your well stocked cellars and we know you will support Doug into the future for his exceptional winemaking skills.

Thanks again for being a part of our wine journey at Paradise IV.

Welcome to Paradise IV Wines

Paradise IV Winery has a long and proud history dating back to 1848, when James Henry Dardel first established his Paradise Winery, a collection of four vineyards on the banks of the Moorabool River in the Moorabool Valley. Read more about the history of the winery.

In 1988 planting at Moorabool Estate was re-established on the site of the original Paradise IV Vineyard by Graham and Ruth Bonney.

Doug Neal discovered Moorabool Estate in 2006 and from that time, with Doug's involvement as wine-maker, outstanding wines from estate grown fruit have been produced under the Paradise IV label.

With a seemingly unique terroir, Graham's untiring work and vigilance as viticulturist and Doug's dedication and passion as winemaker, Paradise IV wines are highly regarded and sought after locally, interstate and overseas.
