Brown Magpie Wines Information
'The Brown Magpie cellar door is backed by a row of cypress trees populated, appropriately enough, by an extended family of industrious magpies who stalk around the vineyard with a proprietorial air. This is a tranquil spot in the Surf Coast hinterland with a plot of vineyard that looks towards Mount Moriac's gentle slopes. It's well worth a detour when you're in the region for its award-winning Shiraz and Pinot Noir.' Ralph Kyte-Powell
Brown Magpie Wines is located in the picturesque hinterland of the Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road, 15 minutes Anglesea and Torquay, and 25 minutes south west of Geelong.
Shane and Loretta Breheny selected the property specifically for the purpose. Planted in 2000 and 2001 the vineyard consists of nine hectares of north facing gentle slope. Dense, well established cypress trees along the borders shelter the vineyard from strong winds and moderates temperature.
All wines are handcrafted on site from estate grown, hand picked fruit, and are a true reflection of the vineyard. The vineyard is ideally located for producing premium quality shiraz, pinot noir, gris and grigio, wine.
The quality of the wines has been acknowledged since the first vintage in 2003, with multiple gold medals and trophies being awarded.
Recent awards include:
- Gold Medal, Trophy and Best Wine in Geelong Wine Show -Shiraz 2010
- Top Gold Medal in Class in Dan Murphy's National Wine Show - Shiraz 2010
- Gold Medal and Trophy in Geelong Wine Show 2007 - Shiraz 2006
