Fowles Wine (USA) Inc.
Fowles Wine is family owned and the first Victorian winery to win the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge trophy for Australiaâ€™s Best Shiraz. Our vineyards and winery are located in the cool climate granite landscape of the Strathbogie Ranges wine region, Victoria, Australia. We incorporated as Fowles Wine (USA) Inc in 2012 to oversee and manage national distribution and marketing of our fine wine in the United States of America. Fowles Wine is led by President and CEO Matt Fowles. A former lawyer who swapped the vitriol for the vineyard, Matt is sustainable food advocate and a responsible hunter and is the brains behind our innovative Ladies Who Shoot their Lunch and Are you Game? wines. Matt and his family are based in Virginia. Our wine making team is led by Chief Winemaker Victor Nash. A Young Australian Winemaker of the Year finalist with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Wine Science), Victor has been the talent behind our award winning wines for over ten years. We believe the worldâ€™s best wines are made in the vineyard and the special combination of topography, soil and climate in the Strathbogie Ranges is what gives our wines their â€˜structural coreâ€™ and personality. Generally our wines are only gently touched by winemaker hands. However, sometimes we spend more time in the winery crafting our wines to suit a particular purpose â€“ in our case, making wine to match with food. These wine making philosophies are different and so are the resulting wines which are available in the US: Regional Wines: Our Regional Wines are made in the vineyard. We select the best fruit and nurture it to bottle, only gently touched by winemaker hands. STONE DWELLERS is a range of wines grown on select regional vineyards that are made to showcase the best varietal examples from the Strathbogie Ranges each vintage. Food Wines: With our â€˜Food Winesâ€™, we spend more time in the winery moulding these wines to match food. Ladies who Shoot their Lunch are the world's first range of wines blended specifically to match with wild game meat. Are you Game? is a range of wines made to be food friendly and encourage more thought around the provenance of food. Named as a â€˜Winery to Watchâ€™ by Wine Spectator's Harvey Steiman, Fowles Wine is a dynamic winery proudly taking the best of the Strathbogie Ranges to world with exciting cool climate fine wines.
