Gary Farr is a truly legendary winemaker; he was responsible for taking Bannockburn in Geelong to startling heights as one of the benchmark producers of Burgundian varieties in the country. His own label, By Farr, is quite simply one of Australia's finest. From their base in Geelong, around 80 kilometres southwest of Melbourne, Gary Farr and his son Nick make small quantities of single vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that rank with Australia’s best wines. The original property was purchased by Gary and Robyn Farr back in 1994. It has since seen many new additions stretching the size of the estate to a total of 130 acres, of which 36 acres are under vine and the remainder is maintained as grazing and cropping for cattle and horses. The estate is run exactly as you would a Burgundian Domaine, with the winery at the heart of the vineyards, gravity fed with pressing and tanks at ground level and barrels and bottles underground. The winemaking and commitment to such large percentage of both new oak and whole bunch is similar to the Domaine Dujac “recipe” (as well as DRC), and they use the same cooper for all their barrels.
