Ivybrook Farm has been presided over by five generations of the Hunt family. Its current custodians, David & Cheryl and their son Nicholas Hunt, are inspired by the principles and practices of biodynamic agriculture.
“We strive for self-sufficiency and carry out all stages of the wine process – grape growing, grape picking, wine making and finally the cellar door sales from the property”.
At Ivybrook Farm, we use organic and biodynamic practices on our vineyards and farmland. This is a natural farming method which targets the soil using herbal preparations, plant teas, and composts; while minimally utilizing applications of copper and sulphur sprays when required.
In essence, biodynamic practice is motivated by the desire to work the earth organically and create a living healthy environment
The end goal is to farm the land cleanly and simply, allowing the wine to express its vitality and honesty.
