Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Victoria

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Beechworth

With soils packed with minerals and a range of altitudes and terroir, Beechworth is situated on the continental side of the Victorian Alps, setting the scene for warm, sunny days as well as cool nights, which temper any heat and produce wine grapes with natural elegance.

Beechworth is home to some of the best Chardonnay produced in Australia, along with other cool-climate varietals like Pinot Noir. A focus on small batch production lends a boutique air to Beechworth with winemakers being hands-on when it comes to every aspect of their vines and wines.

About the brand Fighting Gully Road

The first vines were planted at the Fighting Gully Road vineyard site in 1997. Although purchased in 1995, the following two years were spent clearing the property of scrub, stumps and many thousands of rabbits. After establishing a vineyard on colluvial slopes overlooking the Ovens river valley with his brothers in 1988, Mark’s interest in even cooler climate viticulture led him to elevated Beechworth plateau that can be clearly seen from the original vineyard. Cabernet Sauvignon and a small plot of Merlot were the first vines planted, followed by Pinot Noir in the following year. The site rises up to the top of the escarpment above the Murmungee basin, to the south of the town of Beechworth. The north and west facing lower slopes were planted to the red Bordeaux varieties; while the upper and east facing slopes were planted to Pinot Noir. Over subsequent years, small areas have been re-worked to include Tempranillo, Shiraz and Sangiovese. In 2009 the opportunity arose to lease the Smith vineyard, located only a few minutes away from the Fighting Gully Road site. This small vineyard was planted to Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon in 1978, making it the oldest vineyard in the region. In 2010 their first Beechworth Chardonnay vintage was produced which was released in 2011 under the Fighting Gully Road label.
