Luscious, light, ethereal Pinot - like butterfly footsteps across your arm. Red apple, raspberry, subtle smoke, thyme. Joyous. Al and Adriana – organic grape growers and winemakers at Bandicoot Run, a little farm in West Gippsland, Victoria. Bandicoot Run was born out of the desire to work more closely with nature and the ebb and flow of the seasons. Established in 2017 with the expansion of the half-acre vineyard on Al’s family farm in West Gippsland, they now farm 7 acres of vines, organically and with a focus on biodiversity and building healthy soil microbiology. The majority of the vineyard is planted out to Pinot Noir with the remainder made up of Chardonnay, Syrah, Viognier and Tempranillo. They live and work on site, with the winery shed and house all within metres of the vineyard and integrated with the orchards, veggie gardens and native vegetation plantings which extend like fingers between the vineyard blocks. These plantings create connections for indigenous species, especially a population of endangered Southern Brown Bandicoots, which have visibly thrived since establishing the vineyard. Hence the name. Al is also a talented knife maker, check out his wares at Wren Knives.
