Seppelt has been producing Pinot Gris since 1997 and pioneered Drumborg as a wine grape growing region in 1964 when it planted its Drumborg Vineyard near Portland in South-West Victoria. The southerly latitude, together with the cold winds which blow up from the Antarctic, result in vintages often as late as mid May. The cold growing conditions help to reduce crop levels and ensure small berries with intense flavours.
The Seppelt Drumborg Pinot Gris was previously known as Seppelt Coborra Pinot Gris. It was decided the Drumborg name was a more accurate description for this single vineyard wine.
