Patrick Sullivan launched his eponymous wine label, Patrick Sullivan Wines, in 2010 in Gippsland, Victoria, a sprawling cool climate wine region east of the Yarra Valley. With a winemaking style totally driven by purity, today Patrick’s name is synonymous with Australia's cutting edge, minimal intervention wine movement. Patrick and his wife, Megan, make a range of small-batch, boutique wines on their farm in the Strezleki ranges. The home vineyards are farmed biodynamically with no irrigation or tillage of any kind. The fruit is all hand-picked and fermented with indigenous yeasts in neutral vessels.
Patrick also draws fruit from 11 hectares of old vines on rich volcanic soils spread across five distinct sites in the shire of Baw Baw Shire, Gippsland, that he purchased with his friend and fellow winemaker William (Bill) Downie, in 2017. All the sites are farmed organically and biodynamically (ACO certified). Patrick takes most of the white varietals, and Bill the reds. Vibrant, energetic, hand-crafted wines, inspired by emotion, a moment in time and a sense of place.
