Gary's uncompromising attitude towards the vineyard and winekmaking enables him to make the style of wines he likes to drink. His experience as a hands-on winemaker has been enhanced by 13 vintages at Domain Dujac, in Burgundy and also vintages at Cristom, Oregon and Calera, California. He has made numerous sojourns to other area’s such as the Rhone Valley in France where his appreciation of Shiraz and Viognier has been incorporated in current winemaking.
“Gary Farr is the master of pinot noir and his experience with the variety in the Geelong region and in Burgundy translates into some superb wines. Now joined by son Nick, a gifted and well-travelled winemaker too, Gary’s wines continue to entrance pinotphiles with their varietal honesty and complexity. His ’09 wines are all great example, with the Sangreal perhaps the most impressive at this stage. It has a decadently rich, lush varietal nose that beautifully combines gamey, earthy complexities with a core of spicy, plummy fruit. It’s full-bodied for pinot, with a velvety texture, greath depth, fine tannins and an ultra-long, aromatic aftertaste. Great Australian pinot.” Ralph Kyte-Powell
