The Stoneleigh Project brings wild fermentation to life in the heart of Melbourne

The Stoneleigh Project is comprised of flowing virtual rivers, ancient river stones, rays of sunlight and floating wild yeast bubbles. An installation inspired by nature’s wonder, each element plays a critical role in the formation of Stoneleigh wines. In collaboration with internationally-acclaimed artist Susi Sie, mesmerising video projections inspired by Stoneleigh Wild Valley Pinot Noir delight the senses.

Stoneleigh winemaker Jamie Marfell notes: “The Stoneleigh Project is a great way to conceptualise the winemaking philosophy of Stoneleigh. The ancient river stones that pave the vineyards, the radiant Marlborough sunshine and the thousands of natural, wild yeast strains in the vineyard all play a part in giving Stoneleigh Wild Valley its rich texture and lush fruit flavours.”

On your journey through the exhibition you will receive complimentary samples of Stoneleigh Wild Valley wines, including a Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Both of these wines are also available for purchase from the Stoneleigh wine bar to enjoy at the venue, or the onsite cellar door if you’d like to take a bottle or two home.



In 2016 The Stoneleigh Hotel took us into a world where nature had claimed back an entire building – highlighting how nature and the passage of time combine to change an environment.
