About First Foot Forward Wines
Martin Siebert's sensational value range of wines burst onto the Yarra Valley wine scene in 2015. His day job is as vineyard manager and winemaker at Tokar Estate in the heart of the Yarra Valley - First Foot Forward is the minimum intervention wines side hustle, and a brilliant one at that.
The grapes for the range are primarily sourced from the cool, higher altitude Patch Vineyard, a unique site lovingly tended by owner Jody Dawson, on the high southern edge of the Yarra Valley.
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are the main protagonists but look out for other varietal forays. The wines are wild yeast fermented before elevage in oak and / or terracotta eggs.
