The Wine Farm is where we grow the wine we want to drink and
the food we want to eat. It's where our kids get muddy, our dog

A place where a growing community of food producers is hitting its straps; a place more and more Melburnians are overheard tipping as ‘the next Mornington Peninsula’ to a chorus of locals who say ‘no sir!’; and a place where grapes thrive.

    We’ve just started a conversation with people who value the same sort of wine as us – wine that is pure; wine that shows place not process – and are interested in how it’s achieved. If you’d like to hear more about the wine we make and how we make it, as well as getting … Continued
