After years of working out of wineries making wine under contract and doing his own thing under the Provenance label, Scott Ireland longed for his own space.

This year he gets his wish. Home is on a quiet river bend of Buckleys Falls at Fyansford, outside Geelong, in a brick and bluestone factory that started life as a paper mill in 1878.

It’s a beautiful building perched above the Barwon River with a winery to one side, a long room-cum-restaurant-cum-tasting-space to the other, and private tasting booths for groups.

At its new digs, wine lovers will get to better understand the multi-talents of Scott Ireland whose idea of provenance is to look at the individual qualities of chardonnay and pinot noir from symbiotic regions: Geelong, Henty, Ballarat. In 2017, he added a pinot noir from the Macedon Ranges.

Situated in a creative enclave surrounded by fellow artisans, Ireland’s new home will be quite the all-round experience for visitors. JENI PORT
