Architect/s: John Skinner with BPSM Architects (2023)

Pressing Matters comprises two families brought together from a love of wine supported by a
passionate and talented team. Greg Melick AO SC and wife Michelle founded Pressing Matters in 2002, inspired by the potential of the neighbouring Morningside Vineyard to produce the noble European varieties of Riesling, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet. The first vintage was in 2006.

The opportunity to unite the Morningside vineyard with Pressing Matters saw Anthony and Kay Hall join the Melicks as partners in late 2019. A friendship formed from a love of burgundy and holidays shared in the family home in Meursault now fuels the next stage of the Pressing Matters story. Significant investment in a new winery, tasting room and general infrastructure and new plantings are some of the first steps of the partnership.

The Pressing Matters team liked the original John Skinner-designed Morningside House and given the architect also at one stage had his own vineyard we convinced him to come out of retirement and design the winery, tasting room and house. The brief for the winery was that it was not to be a trophy but be practical and architecturally interesting – creating a collection of white geometric  objects on the hill.

Open: Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February, 10 am – 4 pm
