The name celebrates the 1964 vintage orange-coloured Fiat tractor acquired when Murray Gomm and Pamela Lincoln began the establishment of the vineyard. Murray was born in the region, but moved to Perth to work in physical education and health promotion. Here he met nutritionist Pamela, who completed the wine science degree at CSU in 2000, before being awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study organic grape and wine production in the US and Europe. The vineyard was certified organic between 2005–2021: they have since dropped the certification but retained the practice. -JAMES HALLIDAY
