Perched on a hill at the edge of the Strathbogie Ranges, our beautiful new winery, with its arching steel roof, is a local landmark visible from miles away. This showcase winery was built in 2000. The winery features a vast tank farm and barrel hall with over 1000 barrels. The winery is the crucible of five main wine brands for Fowles Wine.
We have four fulltime, highly-trained winemakers on site (more than is usual for a winery of its size) allowing thorough attention and skill to be given to each batch of wine. The winery has a fully-equipped laboratory for wine and grape analysis. At the height of the vintage the winery operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week with around 20 staff. The winery has the capacity to crush 7500 tonnes of fruit each vintage. There are three tank presses, and a whole-bunch grape press for sparkling wine. Further along the production line there are 16 state-of-the-art sweep-arm fermenters, and a wide array of filtration systems including the latest crossflow filters.
