Farmer & The Scientist are husband and wife team Brian and Jess Dwyer whom grow and nurture their handcrafted wines from budburst to bottle. Investments in hand processing, small batch fermentation and simply allowing time on quality oak has created a range of wines synonymous with Heathcote character and quality.

Brian is the Farmer of the family with industry experience including a viticulture career started in the quality training grounds of Southcorp Wines. Currently he manages a 193-acre vineyard in addition to Farmer & The Scientist's 20 acres of vines. With her degree in Science and further studies in teaching, Jess is the Scientist of the two although holding her own in the viticultural industry having gained experience working in wineries & vineyards for many years.

The new kids on the block have created a buzz on the Heathcote wine scene since their first sold-out vintage in 2013 and collecting the odd medal or two including winning top place with their Tempranillo at the 2016 Victorian Wine Awards. Offering a solid range of wines backed by simple, honest winemaking is gaining this young couple a growing following.
