Letters from The Wine Farm
Since taking on The Wine Farm in 2014 and releasing our first vintage a couple of years later we’ve learnt so many lessons; had our values challenged over and over again; honed our skills; sharpened our resolve… even questioned our purpose (does the world really need more wine?). And now we find ourselves doing what we do with far more consciousness, greater confidence and a nourishing dose of gentleness.
The world absolutely does need wine. Less of the chemically-farmed, mass-produced soulless variety, sure. But there is always a place on the table for gently farmed, consciously made, joyful wine. Drinking a great wine adds colour to your life. Savouring a glass of something you love, made with care you can taste, provides one of those rare moments of joy that are pretty hard to come by as an adult.
Today we want to share with you our two flagships – Pinot noir and Chardonnay – that best demonstrate how our wines have come of age. They are both confident, gentle and joyful expressions of how these varieties perform in healthy South Gippsland soils.
