Our Review

Simon and Frances Stewart were told it wasn’t possible to grow vines in the cracking clay subsoils of Longford, but went ahead anyway and planted 500 vines of pinot noir clones Pinot Fin (sic), Pommard and Abel. Chardonnay and pinot gris have since been planted, too. The cellar door, opened in 2017, is a moveable feast: depending on the weather it may be in the garden, at tables along the verandah or, in winter, in their country kitchen or dining room – the latter doubling as the cellar because it’s the coldest room in the house. The name of their business comes from Simon’s time as a master mariner and the requirement for a ship setting anchor in a fog: a bell sounded rapidly for 5 seconds in the bow, then a gong sounded rapidly for 5 seconds in the stern.
