Description

The estate is named after the town of Aylesbury from which the Gibbs family hailed, first moving to the Ferguson Valley in 1883. The 22 acre vineyard is part of a family owned farm that has been passed down through five generations. It was cleared by hand by current owner Ryan Gibbs’ ancestor Samuel in the late 1800s. Various crops and herds were farmed on the land until vines were planted in 1998. The property is 200 hectares in total with approximately 9 hectares under vine. 

The Ferguson Valley's climate is similar to south-west Europe; with cool wet winters and warm dry summers, perfect for grape-growing on the property's 200 hectares. Native Australian forests surrounding the property provides pure, clean water for vines throughout the summer, supported by fertile loam helping to retain moisture.
