About The Wine
The Wine Farm is one of the most interesting wine ventures to pop up in Gippsland in recent times. An established vineyard (20-25 year old plantings) grown over 7ha in the southern nook of the region, only 50km from the coast, seemed like the ideal place to set up shop for Neil and Anne Hawkins.
The Pinot Gris that grows on this vineyard ripens beautifully.
The wine, made naturally by Neil Hawkins has a lovely blushed pink colour to it as well as a succulent, fleshy mid-palate with plenty of refreshing acidity.
It's a complex and slightly wild take on the variety which will keep you coming back for more.
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."
