Morris Wines was established in 1859. A family owned wine business, the fifth generation now controls the business, and continues the long historical legacy of the winery. When father Mick retired in 1993, the reigns fell into son David’s hands, and he has controlled the company’s Mia Mia winery in the Brown’s Plains since.
