More About This Wine
Patrick Sullivan grew up in the countryside of Victoria in Australia. When he was 19 years old he went to London to explore the world and ended up with a job working in wine. It was here that he discovered the wonder of wines made from organically and biodynamically made grapes. He then returned home to Australia, determined to discover what made these wines taste so different. He worked for various projects in the Yarra Valley, including most importantly, Bill Downie, with whom he learned the real value of serious, hardworking viticulture. When a property nearby in Gippsland became available, he pounced on the opportunity, and in 2016 he and his wife Megan planted their first vines. Patrick makes wine with very careful viticulture and minimal intervention in the cellar.
