Being allegedly the only two (literate) students to Graduate Healesville High School in ’97, we were always destined to work together. Behn (the Payten) drove his first Tractor at the age of 5. Troy (the Jones) was talking by the age of 1 and hasn’t shut up since. Naturally we fell into the wrong crowd out here, and became Vignerons/Winemakers. Behn’s dad Pete knows a thing or two about wine. In his years of working in the Yarra Valley industry, he managed Australia’s first organic vineyard and always focused heavily on sustainability, so the we knew we were in good hands. The three of us continue to spend regular nights on the reds, solving the world’s problems. We reckon drinking our wine is like experiencing a band live, as opposed to listening to a studio recorded track. There’s minimal intervention, a bit of ‘raw’ processes, and nothing filtered or cleaned up in any way. They’re a bit ‘edgy’, even a bit ‘raw’. Always interesting, with a little soul left in. We’re “do nothing, do it all’s” Most importantly, when it comes to our wines, without comprise, they just have to taste bloody good.
