The People

CForge_Unedited.LowRes-35

From South Gippsland, Victoria we’re a winery run by a husband and wife team who decided to take a leap of faith and make Pinot Noir. Marcus and Lisa have a passion for making great wine from the region they both grew up in.

Marcus Satchell

Celebrating 20 vintages both here and abroad in 2017, Marcus is passionate about making wines that speak of South Gippsland and the dirt in which they’re grown. A brief and memorable meeting with Pinot Noir in the Yarra Valley back in ’97 has now turned in to a full blown obsession with the grape and handcrafting wines with soul.

Lisa Sartori

Stepping out of her corporate banking career and in to the paddock with Marcus, has been a brave and some say crazy move, however Lisa has taken to it like a duck to water. Whether it’s pruning vines, tractor work, netting, mowing, or taking deliveries around the countryside, Lisa is the great all rounder of the team, and you’re sure to see her face at our new tasting room.
