Our Story

Dominic and Krystina Morris are a young winemaking couple with a passion for making premium red wines. They met while working vintage in the Barossa Valley, and spent many years working consecutive Australian and European vintages.

In 1994, on a regular end-of-vintage holiday at the beautiful Pondalowie Bay, on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula, they made the decision to funnel their enthusiasm and experience into a vineyard and winery of their own. The Bendigo region in Central Victoria was chosen, and with family support they established 25 acres of vineyard.

The winery is named Pondalowie after the special place they decided to turn their dream into reality.
