Gemtree Wines is a full family affair…
Paul and Jill Buttery established the Gemtree vineyards in McLaren Vale in 1980. Now their daughter Melissa Brown (nee Buttery) is the Biodynamic Viticulturist and her husband, Mike Brown is the Chief Winemaker and Managing Director.
For the Butterys and Browns it is not just about winemaking… it is about setting new standards for sustainable, generational farming. We see ourselves as custodians of the land and we want to leave it in a better condition than we found it. We want our legacy to live on for our children.
Mike and Melissa Brown
As husband and wife AND Winemaker and Viticulturist, they work together in every way.
We love our vines, tend to the sheep and create the BD preps to grow A grade fruit.
We endure the long vintages and get our hands dirty to bring you quality wines year in year out.
