Ben Mullen & Ben Hine
Mulline is the creation of two Ben’s, Mullen and Hine who set out to showcase exciting single site expressions from the Geelong region with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at the centre of this. Ben Mulline heads up the winemaking and prior to setting up Mulline cut his teeth at the likes of Domaine Dujac, Yarra Yering, Oakridge, Leeuwin Estate, Torbreck & Craggy Range before returning to deep dive into the diversity of Geelong’s terroir whilst at Clyde Park.
Geelong geographically is a large GI and has a lot of diversity in both soil and climate, evident in Mulline’s single vineyard wines. From the ‘by the sea’ Portarlington vineyard east of the Geelong CBD exposed to Port Phillip Bay to the warmer clay dominant Sutherland Creek vineyard North West towards Ballarat.
