Demystify biodynamics with a bite to eat and a glass of wine
Established in 1980, Gemtree Wines is a family-owned winery, certified organic and biodynamic. Bordered by the hills and the coast, Gemtree's sustainably built Tasting Room takes in elevated views over McLaren Vale to the ocean beyond.
Located at the Tasting Room is the Gemtree Biodynamic Hut, an informal interactive experience providing visitors with a deeper understanding of biodynamic viticulture. Adjacent to the Tasting Room is the 1km Gemtree Eco Trail, a meandering path through 10 hectares of regenerated natural bushland, offering visitors a connection to the surrounding land that inspires Gemtree's guiding philosophies.
Visitors to Gemtree Wines can choose from a number of experiences that deliver a perfect blend of nature, food and wine only 45 minutes from the Adelaide CBD and 15 minutes from the pristine beaches of the south coast.
Run by Melissa Brown, Biodynamic Viticulturalist and daughter of Paul and Jill Buttery who established the vineyard, and husband, Mike Brown, Chief Winemaker, Gemtree's philosophy is simple - minimal interventin in the winemaking process and a more environmentally conscious farming system to produce certified organic and biodynamic wines which are powerful, concentrated, and express the true characteristics of each grape variety and the region.
McLaren Vale is famous for its intensely flavoured Shiraz as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Grenache. Nestled between rolling hills and a picturesque coastline approximately 35 km south of Adelaide, the region has a Mediterranean climate that is ideal for grape growing.
Shiraz, Tempranillo, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro, Fiano.
