The planning of Brown Magpie Wines started in 1998. This new venture was born through Shane’s and Loretta's love of fine wine love of horticulture. The property we selected is ideal for the purpose. It consists of 20 hectares on a gentle, north facing slope: the cypress trees, planted on the western and southern borders, provide a warm, sheltered site. Situated in Modewarre, which is a few kilometres from Geelong, it is in the hinterland of the Surf Coast. Brown Magpie Wines has nine hectares of grapevines, which were planted in 2001 and 2002. The pinot noir, shiraz, pinot gris, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay are all currently producing, and we have just finished our sixth vintage. The vineyard displays a range of soils from sandy loam to light clay, and our water supply is fresh rainwater from our dam and water tanks. Our winery is on site. Our consultant winemaker is Karen Coulston, who graduated in wine science from Charles Sturt University in 1995: she is well known in Yarrambat for her wonderful Hills of Plenty wines. Karen, who carefully supervises all facets of the winemaking, believes the wine should express the flavours and character of the vineyard. Our wines are handcrafted works of art and science. The shiraz and pinot noir grapes are handpicked, crushed, and hand plunged in small vats. They are then gently pressed and aged in French, Hungarian and American Oak barriques. Our white wines are also made on site. Some of it is cold fermented in our stainless steel tanks, and some of it is barrel fermented in both shaved and old barrels. Our name comes from the rare brown and white magpies that live on the site. At the moment we have three living on our property and one living nearby. We hope that you can visit us the next time you drive along the Great Ocean Road to taste and enjoy our wonderful wines. Shane and Loretta Breheny Our cellar door is open from 12 noon to 3pm seven days a week. Read less
