History & Geography
Our winery started in 1997 with three family owned vineyards in Main Ridge, all ten minutes by tractor apart. Shortly after releasing their first wines to the market, h 2003, Martin Spedding bought Ten Minutes by Tractor Wine Co. from the three families and since then has opened a new cellar door, restaurant and added four new vineyards. Each of our vineyard sites feature different aspects, slopes, soils, altitude and influence from the cool maritime breezes that wind their way through our valleys. This terroir and sense of place, explains everything about our wine. Places that are defined by the wines we make and which can seem like worlds apart: the refinement and vibrant acidity of Wallis; the elegance and poise of McCutcheon; the alluring aromatics and fine structure of Judd; the power and fruit purity of Coolart Road.
