Nazaaray Estate: a little bit of India amid very fine wine on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula

OUR STORY

Nazaaray Estate is owned by winemaker Paramdeep (or Param) Ghumman and his doctor wife Nirmal, who emigrated to Australia in 1981 from India.Between 1996 and 2000, they successfully established a small vineyard on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. It is a region becoming known throughout the world for the cool maritime climate which encourages wines of great elegance, finesse, and intensity of flavour.


Paramdeep is definitely not your typical Australian winemaker. For starters, he hails from Punjab in India, a region not associated with fine wine. He had never even tasted wine until aged 30; he had a glass or two of French Champagne on the flight from Calcutta to Melbourne in 1981.

His interest was immediately piqued, but at that stage, he never dreamed that thirty-five years later his own wines would be served at some of Australia's best restaurants, nor that he and his wife would run a very quirky cellar door complete with vintage railway carriages and sell-out Sunday Tiffin lunches.

In 1991, while still living in Melbourne Param and Nirmal bought 50 acres of cattle farmland on the Mornington Peninsula. It was on a hillside, exposed to the wind from all directions, but it overlooked the verdant landscape and wildlife haven of Greens Bush which is part of the State Peninsula forest reserve.

"The land exceeded our budget and our wildest expectations. We had no idea what we would do with it," says Param. They looked at crops such as olives, fruit trees and specialty produce such as pomegranate, but Paramdeep kept coming back to the dream of creating his own vineyard.

Mad or a mid-life crisis?

His son said he was having a mid-life crisis, his wife said he was mad, and a prominent vigneron took one look at the windswept acreage, immediately agreed with his wife and told him to buy land with vines already planted on it.

"But in your mid-life crisis you do what your heart tells you, not your head," says Param, who enrolled in a six-month evening course on viticulture (the first of many wine courses), then established Nazaaray (beautiful visions) Estate as the Mornington Peninsula's southern-most vineyard.
