Patrick Sullivan, VIC 146 Petersons Road, Ellinbank, VIC
In 2010, Patrick launched his own brand Patrick Sullivan Wines, using grapes grown on leased farmland, before purchasing his own farm and winery in 2015 with his wife, located in the Strzelecki Ranges, Gippsland. The brand embodies Patrick’s passion for and commitment to his natural surroundings, with each of his small-batch, boutique wines inspired by an emotion, a moment in time and a sense of place. Patrick’s approach to the land and its produce is entirely sensory - the bottles at the end of the wine-making process are filled with a pure expression of the fruit that goes into it, with no intervention other than time. He is entirely immersed in the process and a true purveyor of producing acclaimed, intriguing and honest wines.
