Arfion means “Our Wine” in Scottish Gaelic. After 10 years of making someone else’s wines, Dave Mackintosh thought it time to stomp his own grapes – to get a little closer to the land and the entire wine community. So in 2011, with his brother and father, he started Arfion - a small independent wine company where he’s free to take some risks and do things differently. Based in the Yarra Valley, Arfion creates thoughtful wines with minimal winemaking interference. Dry with an acid backbone and a savoury, moreish character.
