We chose the site for Bannock Brae because of its North-facing elevated aspect, particularly suitable for growing grapes. The spectacular views were a bonus.
‘Brae’ is Gaelic for ‘hillside’ – hence the name chosen for the vineyard.
Crawford, former Brewer with Lion Nathan (now Lion), oversees the vineyard and winemaking with expert help from James Dicey (viticulturist) and Sarah-Kate Dineen (winemaker since 2012 vintage).
Catherine looks after sales and marketing.
Rocky, the yellow lab, is responsible for welcoming all visitors – especially those who come to the cellar door.
Please come and visit us soon!
