Why Are They So Fabulous?
It’s the vibe of the thing. There’s a biodynamic hum in the air and in the dark, rich soil.
Gemtree Wines and the Brown family of McLaren Vale believe in natural order and balance. They know that farming is a generational responsibility and they are custodians of the land.
Their philosophy? “Only by looking after that most precious of resources – the environment – can we all hope to farm a better future.” Cheers to that!
Gemtree’s vineyards in McLaren Vale are certified organic and biodynamic – how’s that for walking the talk. These farming practices enable Gemtree to produce wines that express purity, intensity and a true sense of place.
At its very core, Gemtree Wines is authentic. They truly live, breath and believe in what they grow and make.
The Gemtree Tasting Room has a large open deck looking toward the ocean, it’s the perfect spot for family and friends to share wine experiences and make memories. While visiting Gemtree make sure you check out the Gemtree Eco Trail, a restored natural haven for native birds, animals and plants and home to rescue Emus and Koalas. The Eco Trail is free to access, open to the public daily, and use of the playground and BBQ facilities is encouraged. Why not pick up a bottle of wine and a picnic pack at the Tasting Room to enjoy within the natural beauty of the Eco Trail?
Which Wines Should I Try?
Luna de Fresa Tempranillo (Rosé)
When this pretty little number is available, make sure to snap it up! Selling out quickly with each release, this is a beautifully dry rosé with a floral nose, strawberry and cream flavours and a gorgeous salmon hue.
Uncut is the first wine Melissa and Mike Brown made under the Gemtree label over two decades ago! It is a distinctive McLaren Vale Shiraz.
Each year, winemaker Mike Brown is fully body painted and is photographed completely blended into a backdrop. That photograph adorns the label of the annual “The Phantom”. Always a rich, bold, heady and delicious red blend.
