Ivybrook Farm is a historic and beautiful property situated on the coast near to the township of Maslin Beach. Our Family has lived and farmed this land for five generations and is continuing the tradition by growing and managing high quality vineyards on a diverse range of soils using biodynamic techniques.

Preservative free options available
The McLaren Vale wine region is bounded by the Sellicks Hill Range and the waters of Gulf St. Vincent, providing generous temperate growing conditions. Our vineyard is only 3km from the coast and has varied soil types, aspects and elevations. We grow Shiraz, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and small parcels of Arinto, Mencia, Touriga and Grenache.
We began farming much of the vineyard Biodynamically in 2005, and also introduced a mixed herd of sheep and an alpaca to graze and fertilise undervine in Autumn and Winter. This has improved the living soil system and with the aid only of composts, biodynamic soil preparations and low impact farm implements the vineyard has developed its own natural eco-systems.
This minimalist approach is also carried into the production of our wine .Our role is to provide and maintain a healthy environment for the fermentations to happen of their own accord and for the wine to express the fruit from which it was made.
