Philippa Farr grew up at Bannockburn in southern Victoria, “surrounded by people whose lives revolved around vineyards”. You get the sense that she was keen to forge her own path. She did vintage at Brokenwood in 2003, 2004 and 2005 but then pursued a farming career for the following few years. This career took her to Gippsland in Victoria, though through these years she did vintage at Bellvale, Bouzeron, Domaine Dujac, By Farr and Purple Hen. She had the pedigree, the understanding, the appreciation and the knowledge. She was living in a prime pinot noir region. It seems now inevitable that a wine under her own name would follow. This was grown on a vineyard planted at 6000 vines per hectare.
