Grape Farm Winery is a small family tended vineyard located in its own breath taking natural amphitheatre in the Pyrenees wine region. Established in 1976, the vineyard comprises ten acres of mature shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, malbec, riesling, sauvignon blanc, semillon, pinot noir and chardonnay vines, as well as newer plantings of nebbiolo, sangiovese and viognier.
Our wine making methods are personal and traditional and are founded upon organic principles. Vines are hand-pruned, hand-tendered and hand-harvested. Grapes are fermented in open vats, basket pressed and allowed to mature in French and American oak barrels and stainless steel for up to 18 months. All wines are made from fruit harvested from our vineyard. The “grape miles” from the vineyard to the glass are very very low! For example, our nebbiolo is grown, fermented, pressed, matured, bottled and often consumed within a radius of 50 metres.
With low yielding crops, we make wine that is intense, complex and character filled.
