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 FARR RISING

Farr Rising was originally the label of Nick Farr, son of the legendary Gary Farr, founder of the By Farr label. (And if that’s not confusing enough, one of their vineyards is named Farrside!) Anyway, in 2013, father and son merged their businesses and Farr Rising became a ‘second label’ (to By Farr), indicating wines made wholly or partly from bought-in rather than estate-grown fruit. Gary and Nick are both best known for Geelong Region Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, though there is also a By Farr Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir (from Merricks).
