Curly Flat, located in Lancefield 60 minutes from Melbourne was established in 1989 by Jenifer Kolkka and Phillip Moraghan. From the outset, they had a clear focus on vinifying world-class cool-climate Pinot Noir & Chardonnay. With a total 33 acres of hand tended vines, they and the Curly Flat team were committed to creating world-class wines that are an expression of both site and variety.
Jenifer and Phillip were determined to build quality in every aspect of their operation and they poured every resource into their 'baby', Curly Flat without compromise in the pursuit of excellence in wine quality with little or no regard to short-term or even medium-term return on investment.
As of late October 2017, Curly Flat is owned and operated by Jenifer Kolkka, with Matt Harrop (formerly of Shadowfax) joining the team as Chief winemaker to oversee the grape and wine production alongside the existing team.
