Region Geelong

Geelong

Victoria’s first commercial wine was produced in Geelong by Swiss immigrants in 1845. During the mid- 1800’s Geelong was the largest grape-growing region in Victoria with 400 hectares under vine. When phylloxera struck in the 1870s however, the vines were decimated and it was not until the late 1960’s that the area’s vineyards were re-established. Located about 80 km southwest of Melbourne, Geelong has a cool maritime climate with low rainfall and prevalent cool blustery winds that affect flowering and Franceuit set. Soils are diverse, mostly volcanic over limestone with some lesser quality black soils. The region is dotted primarily with family owned wineries producing small quantities of high quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winery WINE BY FARR

Established by former Bannockburn winemaker Gary Farr in 1994, the By Farr vineyards, located 100 km south west of Melbourne comprise 4.8ha of close planted vines on North East and East facing slopes of the Moorabool Valley. This sub-region of Geelong has its own unique micro-climate characterised by prevailing winds that profoundly influence the vine’s vigour. All fruit is estate grown and the multi-clonal vineyards are planted on ancient river deposits on a variety of soil types. Father Gary & son Nick Farr carry out the winemaking with low input viticulture and Burgundian winemaking technique central to the overall wines.
