The brainchild of Anthony Brain, pun intended! Livewire wines are BRAND NEW to Melbourne.  A former chef & now winemaker with extensive experience at Warramate, DeBortoli & Bellarine Estate, Anthony established Livewire last year.  He made the decision to make wines from older vineyards.  The fruit he hand selects  are sourced from older vineyards (30 years+) along the Bellarine peninsular and specifically Geelong.  The wines are expressive of site, textural, layered with excellent balance.  The wines are interesting & fantastically exciting – the pinot noir is a true ‘leg shaker’. These wines are far from homogenous. And the value – exceptional.
