Wines, Olives and Figs – Open Daily

Organic Farming

Its simple: Great food and wine are grown on living soil. We realised this and converted our farm to organic and biodynamic farming in 1997, bringing our soil back to life. Meanwhile we planted vines, olives and figs – all suited to our climate. We built farm houses, a winery and cellar door from super-insulated, natural straw bales and powered by a solar microgrid. We graze sheep under our vines and orchards, plant trees, and make compost on farm.

Organic farming allows us to live and work as a family, using our knowledge and skills to work with nature and produce delicious food and wine.

Preservative Free, Natural Wines

We have grown organic grapes for nearly 3 decades, and now we make all our wine in our own strawbale winery. In 2012 we made our first “Freedom” preservative free wine. In 2020 we stopped using sulfites all together. Since 2022 all our wines are fermented with wild yeast. We use modern cooling systems as well as ancient amphoras to made natural wines with typical regional and varietal style.

Artisan Olives and Figs

We planted 2,500 mixed oil and fruit varieties in 1998-2000, mainly Corregiola, Mediterranean and Kalamata olives. Our olive oil is cold pressed at a nearby olive processor and bottled on farm without filtration. We ferment our kalamata olives for 12 months in rock salt brine and bottle them here.

We planted 110 fig trees, perfectly suited to this climate, in 2004. We grow 8 varieties including the prized White Adriatic figs. These are also packed, dried and cooked by hand on “Rosnay”.

Our Family and Community

We left the wool industry in northern NSW in the mid-1990’s, moving to Canowindra, in the NSW Central West. Our family’s interest in horticulture, wine and organic farming began several generations ago in France. Today three generations are living on Rosnay and work it as a family farm.

Our farm is also part of a unique community-title development called Rivers Road Organic Farms.

Drop in, Taste, Tour or Stay

Our Cellar Door is open daily, 11am to 5pm. You can drop in and taste wine with us, although we do recommend pre-booking our other tasting packages or farm tours. Tastings take around 2 hours with a knowledgeable family or staff member sharing all about our farm and its produce. We cater for large tour groups and have disabled access.

We also offer Farmstay and Glamping accommodation in the original farmhouse and out in the olive grove.

Gallery, Concerts and Events

We are proud to represent local artists on the walls of our cellar door, as well as hosting concerts, film nights and craft markets.
