Meet the Makers

Our people

Fowles Family.

We're a wild bunch.

At Fowles, we are a motley crew of raconteurs and entrepreneurs, auctioneers, law men, farmers, hunters and wine makers. From the frontier land, our forefathers (and mothers) founded what is now Bendigo Bank. Since then, we've gone wild, settling into a life on the land.

Vigneron, hunter and farmer, Matt Fowles raises the bar, swapping the vitriol of the courtroom for the vineyards of the Strathbogie Ranges. Matt leads a team of characters making wine with character.

Since the gold rush in the 1800's to the first blush of spring every year since, our team of passionate producers continue to break ground. From our family to our friends, it's our hardworking team behind the scenery that pour everything into making Fowles Wine one of Australia's finest cool climate wine producers and one of Victoria's most welcoming farm, food and wine experiences.
