MacForbes

Five Star Winery - James Halliday

"Mac Forbes cut his vinous teeth at Mount Mary, where he was winemaker for several years before heading overseas in 2002. He spent two years in London working for Southcorp in a marketing liaison role, before heading to Portugal and Austria to gain further winemaking experience. He returned to the Yarra Valley prior to the 2005 vintage, purchasing grapes for the 2-tier portfolio: first, the Victorian range (employing unusual varieties or unusual winemaking techniques) and, second, the Yarra Valley range of multiple terroir-based offerings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir." - James Halliday

"Since Mac Forbes' first vintage in 2005, we have explored and focused our direction. Today, the focus is mainly on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernets from the Yarra Valley as well as German inspired Rieslings from the Strathbogie Ranges."Mac Forbes
