Ceres is a Dicey family business. Viticultural consultant Robin Dicey, who has developed a number of local vineyards, sons Matt, winemaker at Mt Difficulty, and James, who now runs Robin’s Grape Vision vineyard management company, also produce their own label, Ceres. Grapes come from Matt’s Black Rabbit vineyard, James’s Inlet vineyard and Robin’s Full Circle, all in Bannockburn, Matt makes the wine and the cellar door is at James’s vineyard at the Grape Vision offices. They make pinot gris, riesling and pinot noir.
The racy riesling and the spicy pinot noir.
James’s wife, mixed media artist Odelle Morshuis, exhibits her work at the cellar door, while Matt’s wife, artisan chocolate-maker Alison Holland, has her White Rabbit Cacao bars available for sampling and sale.
