We hunt & gather grapes from great vineyard sites
Handcrafted by Macedon Ranges based winemaker Brian Martin, the Hunter-Gatherer range of wines encompass ideals of faithful expression of site, the use of old-world wine-making practices and the application of new-world knowledge.
Brian has spent the past 13 years making wine in the Macedon Ranges, including 10 years at Kilchurn winery, specialising in making traditional method sparkling wines for wineries throughout Australia.
The Hunter-Gatherer range includes Sparkling Pinot Chardonnay, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Sparkling Shiraz. New wines coming soon include Prosecco, Sangiovese Rose and a Sangiovese Red.
Grapes are sourced predominantly from vineyards in the Macedon and Heathcote wine regions. Brian & his wife Roslyn purchased their own Macedon Ranges vineyard in Pipers Creek in late 2015. The site has a 5-hectare planting of 15 -year-old Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Merlot. They will continue to hunt for grapes from other exceptional vineyard sites to explore regional and site differences.
The HG Pipers Creek vineyard cellar door is open weekends and a venue space adjoining the cellar door is available for weddings, events and functions.
