We’re here for such a blink of time. It just makes sense that we use this fleeting life to good effect – especially good for those that follow. But this is easier than it sounds. It requires focus and a level of humility and internal understanding which only comes with hard experience, if it comes at all.
The Drift Farm specialises in four wines – a single vineyard Rosé, a single vineyard Pinot Noir, a single vineyard Barbera and a blended red wine from various varieties and vineyard sites on the farm.
All the grapes that go into our wines are grown on The Drift Farm. This means we do not buy in any grapes or wine as many other labels do.
In each case our goal is to make individual, superb quality wines with exceptional character. Essentially they represent the extreme growing conditions that characterises our mountain farm.
I love Pinot Noir. It transcends the obvious and the easy. Like life, however, it can sometimes seem unforgiving, unfair and unfathomable. But, when this grape shines, what lies beneath the layers of aroma and flavour can be so moving one instantly becomes a believer again.Buy Now Learn More
I have always wanted to make a really serious Rosé – the type James Bond would drink – which in the case of Rosé is no easy feat. But when the odds are against you, you have the opportunity to make something truly outstanding.Buy Now Learn More
This feisty red is called Moveable Feast because the blend will alter slightly every year depending on what’s in the barrels and how they perform – a blend of Malbec and Shiraz with Tannat, Touriga Nacional and Barbera carefully blended in to spice it up.Buy Now Learn More
We were warned against this tricky variety on our cold windswept farm, but we believed in it and have been happily repaid with superb quality and an intriguing character. We are pretty sure you’ll fall in love with this wine from the heart of our farm.Buy Now Learn More
