About The Wine
Neil Hawkins takes his Pet Nat very seriously.
For this wine, Neil selects some of his finest Pinot Noir from the oldest vines on his property (30-years-old).
The wine is aged on lees for 16 months before release, then hand disgorged before being sent out into the world to ensure that only the cleanest, brightest, most delightfully fizzy wines make it to your dinner table or picnic blanket.
A world away from the super-funkified Pet Nats most commonly seen these days, this is a serious wine for the devout Sparkling lover.
About The Wine Farm
The Wine Farm is a small organically farmed vineyard at the Southern-most tip of the Gippsland region.
This is one of the coolest sites on mainland Australia. The man behind the project, Neil Hawkins, along with his wife Anna, have brought this picturesque patch of land back to life since taking it over.
There are eight varieties planted over seven acres which are producing wonderful, expressive wines. Neil makes the wines with minimal intervention.
The health of the farm is their number one priority, As Neil says, "Under no circumstances whatsoever will we use herbicides, systemic fungicides or insecticides in our vines/on our property. The most important life on The Wine Farm (family and pets aside) is what crawls beneath the soils."
