Gemtree

Paul and Jill Buttery established the Gemtree vineyards in McLaren Vale in 1980. Now their son Andrew runs the business, their daughter Melissa Brown is the Biodynamic Viticulturist and her husband, Mike Brown is the Chief Winemaker.
For the Butterys and Browns it is not just about winemaking… it is about setting new standards for sustainable, generational farming.
