We are Brian & Jess 'Farmer & The Scientist' - Heathcote grape growers, and wine producers who make down to earth wines that make people happy.
The name 'Farmer & The Scientist' - 20yrs ago a farmer (Brian) and a then environmental science student (Jess) landed in the northern Heathcote wine area. Tick Tock went the years, up racked the farming, vineyard & winery jobs. Then we did what the restless like to do and we began to create our own tiny batch Shiraz & Tempranillo in the shed. The second vintage of Temp won Best Mediterranean Red at the VIC Wine Show and we got cocky... 5 years later we are making a bunch of wines from 6 grape varieties and Jess is rocking a day job!
We farm, we create, we love it, we are hooked, and we get to make people happy for a living. So here it is, after all this time we can finally bring you our small-batch wines to enjoy...hopefully, as much as we do!
