The story of Wine X Sam
You could be forgiven for thinking that these guys are truly living the dream. Fantastic workplace, staff & a great little family. Personality plus and a quality product to boot all with adoring fans loving your wine and your brand. Wine X Sam is one of those standout wine makers in the marketplace as they are happy to simply be who they are.
Delivering everytime on the promise of having a range of a great drops so you can be assured you will find one to suit your palate. Set up for making small batch high end wine they produce the brands The Victorian, The Butterfly Effect, The Halo Effect & Métayage and do so with a smile. With panoramic views of Mt Wombat to the North and Mt Buller to the east, the winery is accessible by a winding gravel road, which leads off the Hume Hwy in the North East Victorian region of the Strathbogie ranges. The winery is located about a 10 minute drive north from the Plunkett family owned vineyards. Sam Plunkett’s father , Alan Plunkett, moved onto the property in 1966 to farm sheep with the first grapes planted in the year Sam was born in 1968. While the Merino sheep are farmed for their wool, they are also integral to vineyard management. Being left to graze in the vineyards in Winter they are an effective form of weed control and apply a very natural form of fertiliser! Sam has been making wine for as long as he can remember. It’s a good thing former architect Bron caught the eye of this blue eyed boy, together they share their lives each day doing what they love with the one they love. We were asked to come along and capture some images of these guys that reflected them, a little quirky and incredibly honest about who they are without the glitz and glamour of the industry. Humble and hard working Sam & Bron are a delight to spend a day with. They’re a bit off the beaten track to operate a full time cellar door but in their true hospitable fashion they welcome visitors for a personal tour of their working winery. Lets face it there is nothing quite like a good drop at the end of a day as you put the feet up and drift away to your happy place 🙂 Thankyou so much Sam & Bron for just being yourselves and having so much faith in your brand and us as your photographers… the wine we bought home was a great added bonus! To get your very own sample head to one of their fantastic suppliers Naked Wines who are helping winemakers keep the dream alive.
