Mac Forbes isn't afraid to push the boundaries of cool climate viticulture and winemaking. Eight small vineyards (Yarra Valley and Strathbogie Ranges) are hand tended with the focus being plant and soil health. This respect for soil, vine and environment continues in the winery where fruit balance, purity and minimal inputs are considered paramount in allowing for maximum vineyard expression. Winemaking is old fashioned and thoughtful with each parcel of fruit handled separately. The Yarra Valley comprises a number of sub-regions, providing a platform for pinot noir, chardonnay, syrah and cabernets. The elevated Strathbogie Ranges is cool and dry growing some of the most pure and distinctive riesling in the world.

  • As long as I've been wine tasting, I've encountered "volunteers'... those who pour for the winery, and get to learn the business, meet folks, and generally have a good time.  This has been going on for decades.  Now, it seems, the powers that be are cracking down on wineries for various crimes.  Evidently the use of volunteers is illegal.  Why t...

  • The following post is straight off my blog. I think it's worth making a mention of this group of winemakers because of the great wines they produced which have started getting the attention of the local Australian market and more recently, the UK wine circles. I'm not sure if they have USA distributorships, but do keep your eye out for them! Hop... Read More

Since I'm really interested in organic and biodynamic farming, I'd love to hear your tips on favorite wines in these categories. Is there anything you think I should taste? Also, it tends to be a topic on which people have strong opinions. What is yours? What do you think about... Read More

  • A thread on another category inspired me to look this one up and write it out, because it's from Ben Franklin.  Who was pretty smart, and woulda been a Snoother had he lived to these days of the internet.  Well before Mr. T. Jefferson went to Paris, Franklin already had a great collection of wine, over a thousand bottles (the biggest percentage ... Read More
