Gemtree Wines

McLaren Flat , South Australia, Australia

Gemtree Wines is a third-generation family-owned winery on 306 acres. Owners Mike Brown, Chief Winemaker, and wife Melissa Brown, Biodynamic Viticulturist, work together with a close team to grow their award-winning vineyard with biodynamic and certified organic wines.

With minimal intervention in the winemaking process and a more environmentally conscious farming system, Gemtree produces powerful, concentrated wines that express each grape’s actual characteristics. Gemtree’s sustainably built Tasting Room takes in elevated views over McLaren Vale to the ocean beyond. At the Cellar Door, the Gemtree Biodynamic Hut offers visitors an informal interactive experience to learn about biodynamic viticulture.

The 1km Gemtree Wetlands Ecotrail, a meandering path through 10 hectares of regenerated natural bushland, provides a connection to the surrounding land that inspires Gemtree’s guiding philosophies. Melissa and Mike aim to set new standards for sustainable, generational farming, offering eco-tours, wine and food tasting experiences.
