Producer Profile

Fin Wines

Founded in January 2020, Fin Wines emerged as a vibrant fermentation collective, offering a diverse range of wines, ciders, and piquettes. Our mission is simple: to create youthful, refreshing, and, above all, enjoyable beverages that prioritize drinkability above all else. Embracing a lo-fi approach, we eschew excessive additives and filtration, opting instead for spontaneous fermentation and minimal intervention in the winery.

Comprised of JonJo McEvoy, Oliver Johns, and Angus Hean, Fin Wines was born from a shared passion for exceptional wines and ciders. Nestled in Dixons Creek, within the Yarra Valley on Wurundjeri Country, we are stewards of 10 acres of land, which we tend to with utmost dedication to sustainability, preserving its vitality for generations to come.

Where The Wines Come From

Yarra Valley

In the serene landscapes of the Yarra Valley, natural winemaking is a testament to the region's commitment to sustainability and innovation. Nestled in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, just outside Melbourne, Australia, the Yarra Valley is renowned for its cool-climate vineyards and pristine natural beauty. Here, amidst rolling hills and ancient soils, winemakers embrace organic and biodynamic farming practices, nurturing vines with care and respect for the land. Indigenous grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Shiraz thrive in the region's diverse terroir, producing grapes of exceptional quality and character. In the cellar, minimal intervention is key, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from the Yarra Valley are a reflection of the region's unique terroir, with their vibrant fruit flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the essence of this idyllic corner of Australia.
