By Farr is a perennial favourite producer at Best Cellars. Since Gary Farr left Bannockurn and started Farr wines we have been following this unique site in Geelong. The By Farr vineyard is more akin to a Burgundy producer and should be seen in that light. The seasonal changes are the determining factors for each vintage, coupled with the Terroir of their site.
The Farr Family, started in 1994 by Robyn and Gary on a north facing slope in the township of Bannockburn in the Moorabool Valley. The Original wines where Chardonnay by Farr, Viognier by Farr, Shiraz by Farr and Pinot Noir by Farr now known as Sangreal by Farr. Overtime with the help of Cassie and Nick the vineyards have expand to adjoining neighbouring properties and eventually greater expression of the single site wines that we have today because of the pieces of dirt that we love to farm. The wines of By Farr are built around complexity, layered structure and undeniable length that places them in the highest regard by both consumers for their drinkability and age worthiness or critics around the world for their individuality.
