OUR STORY

Handcrafted by Macedon Ranges based winemaker Brian Martin, the Hunter-Gatherer range of wines encompass ideals of a faithful expression of terroir. While he taps into his experience of sound technical winemaking techniques, the process remains largely "hands-off" to let the characteristics of the fruit shine.

Brian has been making wine in the Macedon Ranges since 2004, which has included senior roles at a local contract winemaking facility, specialising in making traditional method sparkling wines for wineries throughout Australia.

The signature Hunter-Gatherer range includes Sparkling Pinot Chardonnay, Riesling, Chardonnay, Rose, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Sangiovese and Sparkling Shiraz.

Grapes are sourced predominantly from the Hunter-Gatherer vineyard which was purchased by Brian and his wife Roslyn in 2015 and contains a 5-hectare planting of 20+-year-old Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Merlot.

 

However, as the name suggests, Brian is known to "Hunt & Gather" exceptional fruit from reputable neighbouring producers to showcase varietals that thrive in other corners of the Macedon Ranges and Heathcote wine regions.
