Taste the place.
Municipal was established by Matt Froude a boutique winemaker, passionate
about bringing you unique wines that offer a taste of place, time and
variety. Matt was inspired to create Municipal Wines so you can experience
elegant, varietal, food friendly wines that are lower in alcohol than your
average Australian sledgehammer.
Matt has travelled far and wide to gain inspiration and expertise for his
offering which is produced in the cool climate of Victoria’s Strathbogie
Ranges. Matt likes to choose the best variety or varieties from a region
or a unique established vineyard sometimes requiring rejuvenation after
years of neglect.
Matt first started producing wines under the Municipal label in 2014 with
his Whitegate Tempranillo and Shiraz. His plan is to bring the wines to
the people not expect the people to come to the vines by opening an urban
("Municipal") winery and cellar door in Melbourne's Northern Suburbs.
This website provides an online store to purchase my small batch wines, as
well as detailed tasting notes.
I hope you enjoy drinking my wines as much as I did making them.
