    Notes:

    St Peter's Vineyard, North Road, GREAT WESTERN
    Statement of Significance
    St Peter's vineyard was the first vineyard and winery in Great Western. It was established by Jean Pierre and Anne Marie Trouette in 1863. The only remaining obvious reminders of the vineyard orchard and homestead are the gateway and flanking English Elm trees marking the entrance to the property.
    The site is of historical significance to Great Western. It indicates the early settlement of land in the area for vineyard purposes. It is of importance for its potential to provide information that contributes to a greater understanding of the history of the settlement and establishment of the district, and has a strong presumption of archaeological research potential. Further historical research and archaeological investigation is recommended.RECOMMENDED LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE: Conservation Desirable

    History
    The history has been extracted from Chapters 5 and 6, Grapes and Gold by Arthur Kuehne

    Jean Pierre Trouette was born in 1833 and came from a family of winemakers in the French town of Estamps. He left home for Monte Video in Uruguay where he stayed for three years before he emigrated to Australia. He arrived in Adelaide in 1853 and worked in the copper mines of Burra for six months before heading off in the search of gold. In Beechworth he met Marie Louise Blampied and her brother Emile who had run away from France for the adventure of the Victorian goldfields. The three joined forces and transported supplies for the miners. In 1856 Marie and Pierre married in Beechworth and in 1858 they moved to Great Western where the two men engaged in mining. They bought a block of land and commenced supplying vegetables to the miners. In 1863, having obtained freehold of the property, Jean Pierre Trouette planted the first vines. He began with planting half an acre of vines and named the vineyard, St Peter's. By 1867 the estate carried 50,000 vines and 2000 fruit trees, including cherries, plums, quinces and also some olives and chestnuts.
    For the production of wine at vintage time, screw presses were used. A large square tank, 18 feet by 18 feet and three feet deep was built above ground level. The tank was constructed of brick, lined with cement and was divided into two sections. In the one compartment the trading of the grapes took place, while the screw press was placed in the other section.
    They achieved the first recognition for their wines in 1867 when a coach driver, after sampling the wine, entered the wine in the Ballarat National Agricultural Show where it won a gold medal. By 1878 the shelves of St Peter's held a dazzling array of trophies and medals from as far afield as Philadelphia, Austria, London and France.
    The Trouettes were very hospitable and their house was constructed with a large room in the centre from which the doors led to numerous other rooms. The large hall was 50 feet long by 30 feet wide and the roof was supported on five large squared off tree trunks. They entertained up to 100 people in the space. Each year, after the grapes had been gathered in, the "Vendage" or "Harvest Home" was celebrated at St Peter's. This would start late in the afternoon and continue through until daybreak the next morning.
    Jean Pierre Trouette was dedicated to the establishment of the wine industry and he also served the community on the Stawell Shire Council. He was the first Councillor to serve the East Riding after the Shire had been divided into Ridings and he served on council until his death in November 1885.
    The vineyard was taken over by his son Nicholas but tragedy struck three months later when a worker was sent to clean an underground wine vat. He was overcome by fumes and another worker attempted to rescue him but he fell from the rope. Nicholas Trouette went into the tank and secured a rope around the worker but was overcome by fumes. His sister Marie went to assist but had to be rescued from the vat. Nicholas was finally raised from the vat but along with another of the workers could not be revived. Marie Trouette won the bronze medal of the Royal humane Society for her attempts to rescue her brother.
    Following the death of Nicholas Trouette and a number of crop failures and bad seasons, St Peter's was sold in 1897 to an English family named Merton. Ann Marie Trouette lived in retirement until her death in 1905. Her well loved, community minded and public spirited daughter, Marie, took an active part in the life of Great Western until she died in 1927 at the age of 70. The vineyards, orchards, winery and the gracious old homestead of St Peter's are all long gone. Two English trees shade an old iron gate which once lead to the homestead.

    • Personal: 1861, Bell Vue Vineyard, Concongella Creek, Stawell; Frenchman, Jean Pierre Trouette, was one who had great difficulty obtaining a block in Great Western, and it was only after much persistence, that, in about 1862, he was permitted to purchase a small allotment on the Concongella Creek. Trouette was born in 1833, in the town of Estampes, in the south of France, and was one of many Europeans attracted to the Australian gold rushes in the 1850's. Brother and sister, Emile and Marie Blampied, from a farming family, were two others drawn to the antipodes from France during the same period. They made their long journey south in 1852, when Marie was 20, and Emil 15, leaving home without informing their parents. The three Gallic fortune seekers met at Daylesford in 1856, where Jean Pieerre married Marie, and formed a mining partnership with Emil. Two years later they joined the rush to Great Western. Trouette from a wine growing area of France, began to believe that the vine could also flourish in the gravelly and sandy, undulating country about the gold field, so, although some locals called them "fools", in 1863, he and Blampied began planting vines on their plot beside the creek. The two men were actually not the first grape growers in the district. Many of the early spuatters planted vines, as well as fruit trees around their homesteads, and in 1861, at Concongella, near Stawell, another Frenchman, Louis Metzger, had also managed to secure a block of land on the Concongella Creek. He began a vineyard the same year, two years before his compatriots ten kilometres upstream. Being closer to the large population of Stawell, Metzger had an additional difficulty to combat to those faced by Trouette and Blampied; that of the townsfolk who were fond of of grapes crossing over Big Hill to raid his vines. In 1874, the two families were joined, when Emile Blampied married Louisa Metzger, the eldest daughter of Louis. (From Good Country For A Grant, A history of the Stawell Shire, by Robert Kingston. First published 1989)
    • Personal: 1861, Bell Vue Vineyard, Youlden's Bridge, Concongella Creek, Stawell; It is not generally known as it should be that Mr. Louis Metzger, of Concongella Creek, whose holding is situated near Youlden's Bridge, was the pioneer vine-planter in this district with a view to producing wine. As a Frenchman from from a province in his native country in which he had been familiar with vineyard culture he possessed exceptional knowledge on the subject. He quickly released that it would be profitable on the plot of land which he had purchased from the Government, at a price beyond its intrinsic value for ordinary cultivation. His experiment , though only on a small scale, was moderately successful and the example being followed by neighbours marked the very earliest commencement of the wine producing interest, the ultimate importance of which none can tell. Everything was against Mr. Metzger at first: he had to fence in and cultivate a piece of wilderness, beside having to endure the ravages of native birds and other bush enemies, his orchard and vineyard, even during noon-day were robbed by mischievous boys, whose drepredations it was almost impossible to repress. Still, he persevered and proved to his neighbors that the soil and climate were suitable for vine culture, and that good palatable wine could be produced as well as luscious fruit. Taking the vine growers of the district in rotation as regards their commencing to plant Messrs. Trouette and Blampied of St. Peter?s Vineyard, Great Western, and the late Mr. Joe Best, of the same locality, were the next in the order of succession. -. The late Mr Trouette and his partner Mr. Blampied , though not reaping the reward their industry and enterprise merited , did much towards establishing the reputation of Great Western wines and the same must be said for of Mr Jos. Best. - (Stawell: Past and Present by Maynard Ord, published in 1896. Reproduced in 1999 by The Stawell Historical Society).

The first show of the above society came off yesterday at Pleasant Creek, and was a great success. The weather was fine, and visitors poured in during the whole of the earlier part of the day, to find the arrangements for their convenience admirably well devised, considering that this is the first show of a very young society. In wines there was a very fair amount of competition; for the best white wine of any age the first prize was taken by Messrs. Bryce and Chalmers; for that of 1868 first prize, Louis Metzger, of Concongella, and Trouette and Blancpied, of the Great Western, the second prize; for that of 1869 Louis Metzger, first prize. In the red wines, for the best half dozen of any age. Trouette and Blancpied, first prize, and Mooney Brothers, of Mooney's Gap, Avoca road, second prize; for that of 1868, Messrs. Mooney Brothers, first prize; for that of 1869, Messrs. Frey and Co. first prize, and Messrs. Trouette and Blancpied, second prize. It will be seen that, with only two exceptions, the prize-takers for wines are well-known growers in this district. For the best hogshead Colonial Ale the first prize was awarded to Mr. Powell, of the Excelsior Brewery, Stawell; Mr.Crawford, of the Ararat Brewery, obtaining honourable mention. A novel exhibit was made by Mr. Samuel Wilson, of Longerenong, in the shape of ostrich feathers.

    • Fire: 13 Mar 1872, The Ballarat Star, Victoria; The fire which occurred at the homestead of Mr Louis Metzger, of Concongella Creek, has, we (Ararat Advertiser) are sorry to say, destroyed all the property possessed by the proprietor. Mr Metzger was not insured, and about £lOOO is the amount of the loss which has been sustained; only a box, some papers, a couple of chairs, and the horses were saved; The fire was caused we learn, by the, igniting of a dress, which was hanging against the wall. All the crop of. wheat, consisting; of 20 bags, 1500 gallons of wine, the dwelling, outhouses, and barn were destroyed. A great deal of sympathy (which is likely to assume a very tangible form) is expressed for Mr Metzger. Subscription lists are now being carried round.

Louis Metzger, of the Belleview Vineyard, Victoria, says it prevents fungoid diseases to which those trees are liable. Other able vignerons and orchardists also bear flattering testominy to its beneficial effects, and it is certainly worth trying by the Mildura growers.

    Notes:

    Pioneer farmers on small lots grew grapes: Louis F. Metzger, a Frenchman, had a small vineyard near Youlden's bridge . He sold his wine in flagons in Stawell, and Mrs. Metzger drove a cobered wagon into town with the produce.
    (From Shepherd's Gold, C.E. Sayers, 1966)

    It was in the 1850's that vines, sourced from Geelong were first planted in Great Western by Frenchman Louis Metzger. He was shortly followed by fellow immigrants Blampied and Trouette before the more famous brothers Joseph and Henry Best established vineyards and wineries on opposite sides of the main road from Melbourne to Adelaide and adjacent to Concongella Creek. Back then the road was still being used by Cobb & Co. as a stage-route, transporting gold from the area. By the turn of the century there were over 100 vignerons in the district cultivation about 2000 acres of vines.

    Louis Metzger named his vineyard Bell Vue.

    He showed his wines in the First District Agricultural Show at Stawell,on the 19 Aug 1869, and was successful . He was a Vigneron until his death.


    Department of Bas Rhine.
    The department is named ("Lower-Rhine") after the river Rhin.
    The department is made of Lower-Alsace, to which the cantons of La Petite-Pierre and Sarre-Union, former possessions of the House of Deux-Ponts and Hanau, were added in 1792
    The General Council of the department of Bas- Rhin (the former Lower Alsace), also located in Strasbourg, flies the banner of Lower Alsace.
    The General Council of Haut- Rhin (the former Upper-Alsace), located in Colmar, flies the banner of Upper-Alsace.

    Mollkirch is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Alsace in north-eastern France

    Mollkirch: the town, its history ...
    The town
    Mollkirch is a village with a population of 650 situated in the Vosges 40 kilometres to the west of Strasbourg at an altitude of 320 metres. The name Mollkirch is derived from Magel-Kirch, then Mahlkirch, the church of the river Magel. The name Mahlkirch is mentioned as early as 1220. We can deduce that a church already existed at the date.
    Mollkirch used to be based on forestry, also agricultural with a few farms. The tradition of sheep breeding still exists in the village, but these animals have been superseded by livery horses. Mollkirch has become popular for its livery stables over the last few years. There are also fruit trees (cherries, mirabelle plums, quetsches (local damsons), apples and walnuts).
    Mollkirch still has a large sawmill and a company selling forestry vehicles on its territory, both situated in the Bruche valley outside the village. In the village there is also a carpenter and a joiner.

    Mollkirch: History.
    The first signs of human life in the area are the Celtic tumuli (dating somewhere from 800BC) which are located in the Bannholz woods just next to the road from Mollkirch to Gresswiller. Excavations were carried out at the beginning of the 20th century and the meagre findings are to be found in the Historical Museum in Haguenau. To find the tumuli, stop on the level plateau as you come from Mollkirch. The tumuli are opposite a group of larches which suffered badly in the Boxing Day 1999 storm.
    Gallo-roman remains
    The most interesting gallo-roman site within easily walkable distance is the Purpurkopf which can be reached from the Fackenthal campsite. The Purpurkopf is a hilltop fortified by several stone walls with its own well. Do not forgot to visit the Pagan wall at the Mont Saint Odile.
    Mediaeval history
    The history of Mollkirch is quite rich, as it is closely linked to that of its castle, the Guirbaden, perched high on a strategic point overlooking the Magel valley. From 1225 to the French Revolution Mollkirch belonged to the Bishopric of Strasbourg.
    It was indeed in Mollkirch that the peasants revolt began. In March 1525 the inhabitants of Mollkirch rose up against the Rathsamhausen lords.
    Mollkirch is a traditionally catholic village with its church dating from 1837. The Klosterie Chapel, dating back to 1135 and a listed historical building, is to be found at the far end of Laubenheim and is by far the oldest building in the village.

    Strasbourg, France
    Strasbourg (Alsatian, Strossburi; German, Strassburg) is located in the strategical crossroad between the Romanic and Germanic areas, materialized by the Rhine river. Its Latin name, Strateburgum (the City of the Roads) emphasized its importance.
