Best Chardonnay and Pinot in Yarra
Sep 2019
To be honest, I don’t write trip advisor reviews at all. I’ve created an account purely to review Pimpernel Vineyards. Put simply, this place has by far the best chardonnay and Pinot noir (Pinot Noir Four) in the Yarra Valley. I visited both large and boutique producers during my time and this place was the stand out, no other producer showcased these varietals to the quality of Pimpernel, particularly the Pinot. The perfect example as to why you should visit the small, family operated wine growers of any region, that emphasise the importance of the vineyard. Excellent cellar door, personable and honest staff members. This made our whole trip to the Yarra Valley, if you appreciate high quality wine you’ll do yourself a favour and pay a visit.

Great experience
Mar 2019 • Friends
This is probably the best cellar door experience in the Yarra Valley, made so not by the money spent on ostentation and sleek design, but by the genuine character and country hospitality it exhibits. We had the good fortune to arrive on a very hot weekend afternoon, and spent 30 minutes being educated by Morgan on topics ranging from the winemaking process, through to music. He is the best asset any cellar door could wish for. The wines are first class, and the tasting measures generous. We have "done" many of the cellar doors in the Valley, and suggest you finish your visit here...it will leave a lasting positive impression!

Marching to the Beat of its own Drum
Oct 2018 • Couples
Pimpernel Vineyards was the final winery we visited on a day-long tour of the Yarra Valley.

This is a boutique winery, and our host knows Mark Horrigan of the husband-and-wife team which established the winery.

Mark is somewhat eccentric and very decided about things, being somewhat French-obsessed. It was interesting to talk to him and try his wines, with him personally serving them.

He definitely does his own thing, and does it well.

We tasted a number of Pimpernel's wines, and bought two bottles of Grouch plus Pinot Noir One before heading back to Melbourne.

Of the wines we tasted, Grouch was definitely a winner, and our visit was a pleasant experience in a very non-commercial winery with a personal experience and great wines to match.

Perfection at Pimpernel
Jul 2018 • Friends
Even as I write this review, I'm reluctant to because this is one of the best hidden gems in the valley. It is beautiful and quaint cellar door, which makes for a very intimate tasting. Run by a Cardiologist whose knowledge of wine is second to none, there are wines available here I've either rarely or never seen anywhere else, which makes each sip is a unique sensory experience.
Definitely add it to your list for the next trip to YV.

fantastic wines and excellent customer service. It is a great experience when you deal with the owner and the business partners directly far removed from the crazy madness of some other wineries catering only to the tourist dollar.

Spectacular views and wine
Dec 2017 • Couples
Second visit here and it never disappoints. Wine is always lovely and a little different to all the others. Views and gardens are spectacular and the staff are so lovely. A place to visit often.

Brilliant wines, no blingbling
Nov 2017 • Couples
Informal Sunday tasting of the whole range inside their hangar due to high outside temperatures. Despite being from Europe and hence not able to buy and take away wines (highly regrettable in this case...), we got lots of explanations regarding all wines from the owners , not different to any local customer!

Oh yeah, and the wines are simply high end sophisticated stuff ! Brilliant !
