Tim's role in the vineyard kicked off when he and a mate invested in a harvester in the late 80's and in doing so endured many long nights harvesting fruit for the family and around the district. These days his harvester only sees the 225 acre Follett family vineyard.
Tim is responsible for ensuring the fruit available for the Lake Breeze label is of the highest quality. Vines on the property range up to 84 years of age, with only the best 40% of the fruit selected for the Lake Breeze and Bullant labels.
Fruit from the Follett family vineyard is highly sought after by the large Australian wine companies, which can be attributed both to the unique location of the family's vineyard and also to Tim's ability to get the best out of the vines.
