The Geelong region held the first plantings of vines in Victoria and while the history of the vines in the region has seen its good and bad times the fruit grown is of premium quality and unlike any in the state. Raised amongst the vines at Bannockburn, great food and fabulous wines are an important component in Nick Farr’s life. After spending time away from home whilst attending Dookie Agricultural College, Nick realised his love of vineyards and all the wonderful things that are associated, and so the quest began to increase his knowledge and experience in wine. Nick has had vintage experience both in Australia and the USA over the past few years and last year was given the opportunity to make his own wine under the “Farr Rising” label. The story is set to continue.
