By Farr Vineyards is located at Bannockburn, north of Geelong in the Moorabool Valley in South Eastern Victoria.
Gary Farr was the winemaker at Bannockburn Vineyards since its inception in 1978. He has gained an enviable reputation for Bannockburn Wines and more recently, for his own By Farr wines.
Gary's experience as a hands-on winemaker has been enhanced by 12 vintages at Domain Dujac in Burgundy, France, and vintages in the USA at Cristom, Oregon and Calera, California. He has made numerous sojourns to other areas such as the Rhone Valley in France, where his appreciation of Shiraz and Voignier has been incorporated in his current winemaking.
"Gary's uncompromising attitude towards his vineyard and winemaking enables him to make the style of wines he likes to drink. They have attitude and a great depth of character with understated finesse."
"Gary Farr was voted Qantas/Wine Magazine Winemaker of the Year in 2001 after being runner up in 2000. In 2003 he was voted equal 4th best living winemaker by his peers (The Age 28th May 2003). Nick Farr, on the other hand, is the epitome of enthusiasm and individuality with his own tastes and ideas.Their collaboration across a generation has produced two distinct winemaking styles that have received critical acclaim both in Australia and overseas."
