The Fogarty Family
After many trips to some of the best wine regions in Australia and Europe, Peter Fogarty’s long-held passion for wine led him to start his own vineyard. And so the Fogarty Wine Group story began in 1996 when Peter and his wife Lee and three teenage children, John, Mark and Anna, planted the first vines at the family property, Chestnut Farm, in the Perth Hills – a true labour of love. Several years later Millbrook Winery was established on the site with the construction of a stunning winery, tasting room and restaurant.
The Essence of Fine Wines
Twenty-five years on, the Fogarty family has created a stunning Fogarty Wine Group portfolio comprising wine brands from six different regions of Australia: Dalwhinnie in the Pyrenees, Victoria; Lake’s Folly in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales; Deep Wood Estate and Evans & Tate in Margaret River, Millbrook Winery in the Perth Hills and Smithbrook in Pemberton, Western Australia; and Lowestoft and Tasmanian Vintners in Tasmania. The key focus has been the selection of terroir (site and soil) so that distinctive, world-class wines are produced.
