At Glenarty Road we like to do things a little different. We love the term agricultural, we see it as a way of thinking laterally and being responsive to what mother nature throws at us. We take this approach from 'Ground to Glass' and 'Paddock to Produce' ensuring that what you are tasting is a true representation of the site, the season and a bit of hard science.
Sasha McDonald - Winemaker

Together with her life partner, Ben McDonald they believe that the 'ground to glass' approach is the only way.
Ben McDonald - Farmer and Vigneron
Ben loves dirt. Some would say he is almost obsessed with growing things, earning him the endearing title of 'Young McDonald', who had a farm. At the ripe age of 19 he single handedly planted his vineyard and has continued to evolve the family farm since. With over 270 fruit trees, multiple vegetable gardens, a few thousand sheep and a hop field to tend to, he doesn't get bored too easily.
