Renowned Australian wine critic and vigneron, James Halliday has rated Brown Magpie Wines a 5 Star Winery, "Outstanding winery capable of producing wines of very high quality, and did so this year. Also will usually have at least two wines rated at 94 points or above."
Brown Magpie Wines has nine hectares of grapevines, which were planted in 2001 and 2002.
The Geelong wine growing region has soil varieties that include sandy loam, river loam, basalt plains and rich volcanic soils, so a wide range of grapes can be grown. Most of the region is affected by the proximity of the ocean with its associated strong winds. While the growing conditions can be harsh, the wines are simply stunning.
