The Wicked Virgin
The Wicked Virgin is a small family vineyard and olive grove established by John and Laurel Nowacki in 1999. Situated down a sweeping hill towards Rutherglen in North East Victoria, The Wicked Virgin invites visitors to share John and Laurel's passion for good food created from fresh produce, complemented by their excellent Wicked Virgin Extra Virgin Olive Oil and boutique Calico Town Wines. Having planted vines and olive trees, the need for a shopfront prompted the conversion of an old shearing shed which is now a rustic and welcoming mud brick cellar door and tasting area for their Calico Town Wines and Wicked Virgin Olive products. Also available are delicious house made cakes, great coffee and light lunches ranging from comfort foods to eclectic culinary adventures. Located on the Rutherglen town boundary, The Wicked Virgin and Calico Town Wines is a sprightly walk or cycle, using the Murray to Mountain Rail Trail which runs along the bottom of the Olive Grove. Visit The Wicked Virgin and Calico Town Wines, take a breath, relax in a friendly atmosphere. Enjoy good food and wine and immerse yourself in wonderful views and rural ambience.
Mitchelton and its history can be traced over the decades through the pervasive influence of Central Victoria's Goulburn River's flow and the unfolding narrative of its distinctive wines. In 1967, Melbourne entrepreneur Ross Shelmerdine commissioned wine industry stalwart Colin Preece to find the best site for premium wine grape growing anywhere in south eastern Australia. Preece chose an old grazing estate, then known as Blackwood Park, in the Nagambie district in Central Victoria. The river surrounds the vineyard on three sides, shaping the unique environment and climate of Mitchelton. The result is four starkly different soil profiles, creating vineyards within a vineyard across the 154 heactare estate. Proudly 'home grown', Mitchelton crafts wines which are expressive of Central Victoria's best and the wineries rich heritage with Shiraz and Riesling.
