For over a century, Pentridge Prison’s D Division was a temporary home to remand prisoners in the Melbourne suburb of Coburg, until its closure in 1997.

Seeing beyond the building’s history, Moreland City Council recognised its unique potential and, in 2004, officially re-zoned it for wine storage. Moreland Council, in conjunction with The Heritage Council of Victoria, has secured D Division’s future, protecting the grandeur of the original structure and facade.


“Giving these old bluestone walls new life has been our goal since we first visited the site back in 2015. We could see right away how uniquely suited to wine storage it was and how, given some carefully considered upgrades, we could create a boutique storage solution for any serious collector of fine wine”
