Gemtree Vineyards is owned and run by third generation grapegrowers, the Buttery family.

The family is dedicated to producing iconic wines of the highest quality from their McLaren Vale vineyards, which since 2008 have been farmed 100 percent biodynamically. They have 340 acres under vines, and have been awarded five stars winery recognition by James Halliday.

Their award-winning wines such as Uncut Shiraz, Luna Roja Tempranillo, Moonstone Savagnin and Obsidian Shiraz are produced from their vines that are farmed with biodynamic practices and are fully certified organic.

They are also passionate about sound environmental practices, sustainable agriculture and innovation, both in the vineyards and in the winery, where winemaker Mike Brown pushes the boundaries of experimentation with biodynamic wines and alternative winemaking practices.

Firmly establishing themselves as a family business, Gemtree Winery owners Paul and Jill Buttery along with daughter Melissa (site viticulturist) and son Andrew (managing director) have created a unique and socially conscious winery. Winemaker (and son-in-law) Mike Brown has conducted extensive experimentation with biodynamic wines and alternative winemaking practices with great results.

Situated in the heart of their vineyards are the stunning Gemtree Wetlands; an environmental initiative the Buttery clan have launched with Greening Australia to create an area of biodiversity as a major haven for native plants, frogs, birds and animals with six interlinking dams and 50,000 native species of flora planted over 10 hectares.

The recent addition of an informative ecotrail and picnic and barbecue facilities makes this site a must-see for visitors to McLaren Vale. Gemtree opened their cellar door in June 2011, and another in Chengu, China in 2014.

Their Chinese website is at www.gemtreewine.com
