Municipal Wines Frequently Asked Questions


Where does Municipal source its grapes from?
Municipal is a fledgling wine business. At this stage Matt doesn't have the means to purchase a winery and vineyard so he instead searches out great vineyards to buy the best quality fruit to make Municipal Wines.

Why are most of the wines made from Strathbogie Ranges fruit?
Matt believes the Strathbogie Ranges offers some of the most untapped potential in Australia, both in terms of fruit quality, and expression of site. This is why Matt has concentrated his efforts in the Strathbogie Ranges. As the business grows he hopes to make more wines from varieties suited to different regions while always maintaining the highest standards of quality.

When was the first vintage for Municipal?
Municipal produced its first wines in 2014 from 7 tonnes of Tempranillo and 1 tonne of Shiraz and Matt was stoked with the results.

What influences Municipals wine making style?
Matt's philosophy is to create wines that are lower in alcohol, elegant, and retain their natural acidity. These qualities resonate strongly with wine styles found in northern Spain and the Northern Rhone valley in France, and influence his winemaking decisions.

What influences Municipals sake making style?
Matt's philosophy in regards to his sakes is similar to that of his wines, his aim is to produce elegant, complex and food friendly sakes of amazing quality. These qualities are the basis of Japanese sake tradition and influence his sake making decisions.

Why are the sakes made in Japan?
The Municipal Sakes are all made in Japan as Matt's focus is and always has been on quality. In order to produce the best possible sakes it is necessary to make the sake in Japan to access the best quality rice, water and equipment such as rice polishing machines required to make premium sake.
