Winemaker

At Fowles, we are a motley crew of raconteurs and entrepreneurs, auctioneers, law men, farmers, hunters and wine makers. From the frontier land, our forefathers (and mothers) founded what is now Bendigo Bank. Since then, we've gone wild, settling into a life on the land.

Vigneron, hunter and farmer, Matt Fowles raises the bar, swapping the vitriol of the courtroom for the vineyards of the Strathbogie Ranges. Matt leads a team of characters making wine with character.

Since the gold rush in the 1800's to the first blush of spring every year since, our team of passionate producers continue to break ground. From our family to our friends, it's our hardworking team behind the scenery that pour everything into making Fowles Wine one of Australia's finest cool climate wine producers and one of Victoria's most welcoming farm, food and wine experiences.

Vineyard

Fowles Wine own and manage 360 acres of vines across two vineyards called Upton Run and Billi's in the Strathbogie Ranges.

The rugged and beautiful Strathbogie Ranges are located an hour and a half drive northeast of Melbourne. It is here, in vineyards peppered with massive ancient granite boulders, at elevations between 430 and 550 metres above sea level that the vines from which we source Strathbogie fruit grow.

The soils in our family vineyards (Upton Run and Billi's) are comprised of decomposed granite - interspersed with massive granite outcrops. Technically speaking, the soil is sandy clay loam overlying granite and Callabonna clay bedrock - the soils are remarkably even across our vineyards. Ancient, nutrient poor and free-draining, these soils are great for grapes because the vines put their energy into fruit development (its means of survival), rather than canopy.
