By Farr, Father and son team Gary and Nick Farr have gained reputation for some of the best wines in Australia (if not the world) and it is not hard to see why. Gary Farr was given the distinguished title of “maker of Australia’s best pinot” by legendary wine connoisseur Len Evans, with Gary’s experience gained working as winemaker in wineries such as the famous Domain Dujac in Burgundy as well as Cristom Vineyards in Oregon.
However, Gary’s son Nick, is also gaining his own reputation and it is important to note that both generations have very different winemaking styles for the two lines: ‘By Farr’ headed up by Gary and ‘Farr Rising’ by Nick. Despite working side-by-side and often as a team, they are not afraid to go head-to-head when opinions differ.
Wines from By Farr and Farr Rising are extremely sought after, capturing the praise and acclaim of critics and wine lovers both in Australia and overseas. Any releases by the Farr boys are eagerly anticipated, and with their small quantities of single vineyard Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that rank with Australia's best, it is not hard to see why these fantastic wines are so popular and vintages sell out so quickly.
