The only way we can keep up correspondence is by field cards, I am doing my shift on the telephone, and am writing at midnight. We are now in the green fields of France, and still pushing the Germans back. I have had a fair spin, but am still happy, and going strong, though a bit bent up. The weather is brighter, and the days much longer. We have daylight till nearly 9 o'clock. We are looking forward to some fine sunny weather. A few days ago we had a bit of a mix up, and the bad luck to have a man killed and three wounded in our battery. I am in the best of health, and satisfied that I can stay it out in good style. I trust I may have the luck to be there when we start to fire our guns on German soil. We will not hesitate when we range our guns on to some of Fritz's towns. That will be the time when we get some of our own back. I often have a talk with Charlie McGuinness. He is in good health. My work on the telephone is not a bad job. Better than poking about in the stables among the mules. Give my regards to friends who may inquire about me. Good wishes to all. Cheero! Never worry! All happy!"

    • 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).

    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.

    Pleasant Creek Gold Memorial
    Granite memorial commemorates the centenary of the discovery of gold at Pleasant Creek in 1853.
    Gold was first discovered in Pleasant Creek near this memorial in May 1853, by William McLachlan, a hut keeper (or shepherd) employed by a Dr. Blunden. McLachlan found gold after panning in the Pleasant Creek, which was at that time part of Blunden's Concongella Station.
    This small find drew prospectors to the area which resulted in the large gold rush of 1857.
    Discoverers of new goldfields were usually rewarded by the Gold Fields Reward Board but McLachlan's claim was disallowed as he was not directly responsible for the later finds.

    History-Made the Grampian Way

    The Grampians is one of Australia's oldest wine regions with continuous production dating from the 1860?s!

    The story begins with the planting of Belle Vue Vineyard in 1861 by Louis Metzger on the banks of the Concongella Creek near the township of Stawell. Louis Metzger emigrated from Alsace, France and arrived in Australia in 1855, no doubt in search of fortune on the Victorian goldfields.

    Metzger's industry soon caught on and over the course of the next three decades vineyards flourished around the hills and valleys of the Grampians region. The original St Peter's Vineyard (Great Western) was planted in 1863, the Emerald Vineyard (Ararat) in 1864, and others such as the Ingor Vineyard at Mount Ararat and the Swiss Vineyard at Mount Langi Ghiran all point to a thriving viticultural community. According to a newspaper article published in the Ararat Advertiser, by 1893 the area of vines under cultivation had grown to 2000 acres across the various sub-regions of the Grampians.

    Our greatest success story from this period came in the person of Hans Irvine, dubbed by London's Punch magazine, the wine king of Australia. Irvine was a dominant force in the region, purchasing two thirds of the total production and picking up international awards with his Claret, Hock, Chablis, Burgundy, and Hermitage as well as pioneering sparkling production in Australia (NB: these wine names are no longer permitted for Australian produced wines). His own property, Great Western Vineyard, he purchased in 1888 from the estate of Joseph Best and is now the well-known Seppelt Great Western Vineyard. It features the unique underground drives, the most extensive wine cellars in the southern hemisphere, constructed by ex-goldminers.

    Quietly working in the background and laying the foundations for one of Australia?s most enduring wine brands, was Joseph Best's brother, Henry Best, the founder in 1866 of Best's Great Western Wines. The original wine cellar and one of the rarest collections of vines in the world can be visited today and reflect the pioneering spirit that forged the Grampians Wine Region.

    After such a promising start the region suffered a series of setbacks in common with other wine producing regions in Victoria, beginning with the economic depression of the 1890?s. This along with droughts and crop failures saw fortunes dwindle and producers move away from winegrapes to other agricultural enterprises. It would take the prodigious talents of an Australian wine legend to forever secure this region?s reputation for quality wine production. In 1932 Colin Preece became the manager of the Seppelt Great Western Vineyard and went on to become one Australia?s leading lights in the production of sparkling and table wines. In 1953-55 he released Moyston Claret, Chalambar Burgundy, Arawatta Riesling and Rhymney Chablis, each of these wines went on to become classics of their day and herald the modern era of the Australian wine industry.

    Preece was followed by modern day legends, Viv Thomson at Bests, Trevor Mast at Mount Langi Ghiran and Ian McKenzie at Seppelt. Together they set down the blueprint for a modern style of Shiraz and in doing so, announced the signature variety for the Grampians region. It is likely that Joseph Best introduced Shiraz to the Grampians region in the 1860?s and while always a consistent performer it has had to suffer the whims and fates of our boom and bust industry. Today it has assumed its rightful place as our hero varietal producing a long-lived medium bodied wine of incredible length and balance, its fine and supple frame overflowing with berry and spice flavours.

    As the world continues to shrink and our knowledge of wine grows, new varieties will be planted and new techniques developed to produce wines that excite and challenge the wine loving public. But whatever changes may come you can rely on the pioneering spirit of our founders to live on in our winemakers and grape growers.

    Bellviue Vineyard
    In the early 1890s, Bellevue was extended to 200 acres, including twenty-eight under vines and fifteen under fruit trees. As a complement to the vineyard, a large cellar had been built, as well as a storeroom of hardwood with double walls to maintain a low and even temperature for the aging process.74

    Metzger cultivated several different grape varieties,notably the sylvaner, imported from his native country of Alsace. François de Castella stated that he had never seen this type of grape anywhere else before in Victoria,75 which would indicate that Metzger was the first to introduce it in the colony

    Like the Ancient Marriner who drew the wedding guest aside, Ivan Carr a bushlean penisoner from Castlemaine, confronted me before I set out to the Wine Banquet last night.
    " Let me tell you about the best vintage of all," said Ivan Carr screwing up his eyes "I was an orphan adopted by Louis Metzger who had a Stawell vinyard. Two racing gents came from Sydney for some of our grapes"

    "Father gave them Whaltam cross and muscatel, Lady's Finger and Dorradilla. "What a fiest", said the gent. "Now I'll give you something. Black Murray King in the Sydney Cup".

    "Father" ' said, "Please give me ten bob to back Murray King". 'I'll give you nothing' he said. So I packed all my goods on a cart to run away.

    "Mother saw this and said, "Give him something father". So he gave me five bob.

    I went down to the Stawell Gift-only a shaver-and put the money on the horse".
    "Murray King came home at 200 to one. I stuffed the notes in my shirt and ran home, and in the excitement they all fell out at the dinner table."

    Ivan Carr began a lifetime of betting the four footed lottery. But he never had another coup like that. "Tell them at Wine week that the 1926 Stawell Grape Crop made the best win of all", said the ancient vintager".

    Louis Metzger. Possibly Jules Metzger.

    STAWELL, March 13.
    The principal industry in this district is fruit and vines. Mr L. Metzer, of Doctor's Creek, about three miles from here, is the pioneer of the vine industry, having started it as far back as the early 60?s. Messrs Trouette and Blampied, of Great Western, were the next to begin.
