Title: Fowles Wine
Long: Perched on a hill at the edge of the Strathbogie Ranges, this beautiful new winery, with its arching steel roof, is a local landmark visible from miles away. This showcase winery was built in 2000 and features a vast tank farm and barrel hall with over 1000 barrels.
Plunkett Fowles produce wines that capture the essence of cool-climite viticulture with many prize winning varieties inlcuding 490m, Stone Dwellers & The Rule all grown amongst the granite outcrops of this unique and picturesque vineyard.
Balance and harmony. Isn't that what we are in search of in our lives? Visit the Cellar Door to get a little of each. Fine wine and great food go hand in hand and Adele and Ian have worked together to bring three wine and food matches that are morsels of temptation for you to enjoy.
Check out the produce shelves for a range of goodies produced by local friends including olive oils, honey and walnuts. Cellar door open 9am-5pm daily.

Their passion for fine ingredients is so intense, that most of the vegetables are harvested onsite in the kitchen garden!
