Fowles were the first Victorian winery ever to win Great Australian Shiraz Challenge trophy for the finest Shiraz in the land

The Fowles family remain very much at home amongst the rugged Strathbogie Ranges, their wineworks were established astride a striking granite massif that rises to over five hundred metres above sea level. They are surrounded by a multitude of dramatic granite outcrops that burst from the surface of these ancient highlands. The region provide great conditions in which to grow fruit: In the coolness of spring the vines produce only small berries and the ensuing low rainfall and the intense summer sun gives rise to a fruit that is dense in colour and flavour. Energetic and enterprising, they continue to break new ground by bringing the Strathbogie Ranges message in a bottle to the world.

Fowles

Perched on a hill at the edge of the Strathbogie Ranges, the stunning new winery with its arching steel roof is a local landmark visible from miles afar. The Fowles bring a wealth of experience and skill in the arts of the winemaking industry. This sizable venture is the result of mergers between Victoria's most accomplished brands. Their operation incorporates the latest technology winemaking, bottling line, cellar door, restaurant and corporate headquarters.

There's also a state of the art laboratory for wine and grape analysis. At the height of vintage, the harvest season usually from March until May, the winery operates twenty four hours a day with twenty staff.

Further along the production line there are sixteen impressive sweep arm fermenters and a wide array of filtration systems, including the latest crossflow filters. The new Italian built bottling line deftly handles bottle rinsing, capable of both cork and screwcap stelvin, while its labeller has three heads, giving it the ability to apply three different labels to one bottle. The bottling line can produce up to 2000 cases of wine, 24,000 bottles per day. The winery also has its own environmentally sound wastewater treatment plant. Once restored to health, the saved water is put to good use in the spacious gardens and plantations of trees around the facility.
