"Swinney is in the process of making a very powerful statement about the Frankland River region via the delivery of these world class wines."
Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 2023
"Matt Swinney’s epic vineyards in Frankland River coupled with Rob Mann’s celestial winemaking mean these two wines taste densely red and labyrinthinely earthy and therefore like nothing else on earth." 
Matthew Jukes, www.matthewjukes.com, 2022

George John Alexander Swinney, affectionately known as Farvie, and his family settled at ‘Franklands’ in 1922. Today, George’s great grand-children, siblings Matt and Janelle, continue his legacy through their vineyards and wine label.

The Farvie wines, first released in March 2020 from the 2018 vintage, represent the highest quality expression of our family’s best vineyard sites. Our ambition is the creation of wines that sit alongside the best in the world for their variety while evoking a beautiful and singular image of our family home in Frankland River.

The wines are the result of a vineyard–focused philosophy of meticulous attention to site selection and precise grape growing practices. These include dry growing, organic farming principles, intensive shoot and fruit thinning, and careful, deliberate bunch selection from fruit growing either on the morning side of the canopy or protected by shade cloth.

Our 2022 vintage celebrates our fifth vintage of Farvie and is the first release to include all three of our Farvie wines – a Farvie Mourvedre, Farvie Syrah and Farvie Grenache.  Five years is a small milestone, but we are excited by the potential of these wines and the statement they make about their varieties and our Frankland River home.  Our 2022 Farvie wines are now released.

Production of each Farvie wine is limited to just a few hundred cases per year.
