Philippa Farr Pinot Noir Release 2018's

No, it is not a coincidence in surname – Philippa Farr stems from the very same Farr name that we know to be one of the greatest winemaking families in present day Australian wine.

While father, Gary and son, Nick are known to be pioneers of the Geelong wine region, sister Philippa has been carving her own legacy in other parts of Victoria. In 2003 Philippa was studying part-time for her Bachelor’s of Wine Science while completing vintage at Brokenwood. She went on to complete three consecutive vintages with the winery and has chalked up further vintages at Bellvale, Bouzeron, Domaine Dujac, By Farr and Purple Hen. After completing her degree  Philippa transitioned into a career in farming.

This change led Philippa to the rich soils of Gippsland, where she would fall in love with the area and its land. Soon her wine passion was reignited and after 4 years of living in the area, Philippa found an opportunity to start making wine under her own label. Even with all the accolades backing her family name, Philippa has somehow managed to keep a low profile and a humble demeanor.

It’ll be hard to remain somewhat off the radar for much longer as the critics continue to rave about her vintage after vintage. Campbell Mattinson commented on Philippa’s debut 2012 vintage saying: “As debut wines go, this takes the cake. It’s a stunner” and its really only gotten better from there!

The most current vintage release has recently received glowing reviews from Huon Hooke of The Real Review. He has given both wines 95 points and even ranked the Mornington Peninsula Pinot at number 3 out of 70 in his 2018 Pinot Noir Picks from the region.

As I am sure you can gather, Philippa’s wines are becoming quite sought after. I am pleased to offer 15% savings on single bottle purchases and an even further savings when you purchase 6 or more making the wines $45 each.
