Mac Forbes cut his vinous teeth at Mount Mary, where he was winemaker for several years before heading overseas in 2002. He spent two years in London working for Southcorp in a marketing liaison role, then travelled to Portugal and Austria to gain further winemaking experience. He returned to the Yarra Valley prior to the ’05 vintage, purchasing grapes to make his own wines. He has a two-tier portfolio: first, the Victorian range, employing unusual varieties or unusual winemaking techniques; and second, the Yarra Valley range of multiple terroir-based offerings of chardonnay and pinot noir. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Norway, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.
