Brumfield is a family-run winery located on the red volcanic soils of Seville in the Upper Yarra, where David and Anda Crothers make small-batch wines from their estate-grown vines.
The Upper Yarra Valley is a higher elevation and cooler than the Yarra Valley floor, and is known for producing high-quality, cool-climate grapes along with other luscious produce grown in the area.
In 2016, the family introduced a range of sourdough bread to the mix, which they sell locally under the “Frog n’ Duck label. The name “Frog n’ Duck” evolved as they slowly helped their land to recover from more intensive farming. Minimising chemicals, planting hundreds of native trees, and being mindful of nature in all their farming has brought back native birds, bees, frogs and ducks.
They then introduced SLAQ Brewing in 2018, run by David and Anda’s daughter, Li. SLAQ Brewing is a true microbrewery producing small batches from 50 litres to 600 litres. The family also now grow some of the hops that Li uses to produce the beers.
The family is proud of all their products being handcrafted and produced with as many local ingredients where ever possible. Such a dedicated approach to farming provides the highest quality products that are truly artisan and offers you a first-hand experience from farm to bottle.
David & Anda Crothers
David and Anda Crothers have lived and breathed viticulture, winemaking and farming for over 20 years.
In the early days, David and Anda frequented small wineries, enjoying the wines and learning their trade.
Through David’s further studies in oenology and viticulture, they realised the dream of operating their own winery.
They pride themselves on producing handcrafted wines with natural techniques on their seven acres under vine specialising in Shiraz, Sangiovese and Gewürztraminer.
With 20+ years of experience as a winemaker, David places emphasis on always making whatever choice is best for the wine, regardless of philosophies, financial reason, equipment limitations, or how labour intensive it is.
