Philosophy: Gary and Nick Farr inject passion, persistence and patience into each of their wines and it shows with subtle and striking fruit characters that improve with time in the bottle. Of particular interest to Gary and Nick is creating wines that showcase the unique characters of the quality sites they have chosen.
By Farr Vineyard
Based on ancient river deposits, soils from the By Farr vineyards contain volcanic loam over limestone as well as other complex and mineral rich sediments. Well drained and for the most part, of low fertility, they are widely considered to be optimal sites for the production of fine quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
By Farr Wine Range
The By Farr range is produced solely from single vintage, Estate grown fruit. Farr Rising wines, however, are made from a combination of Estate grown and purchased fruit from the Moorabool Valley as well as Mornington Peninsula.
