But after a trip to the Bordeaux region and get a two-year work experience in the vineyards at Chateau Senezhak, the family decided to expand the boundaries of the family business and engage in winemaking. In one part of their farm was divided vineyard "Izoleyshn Ridge", the area of which is gradually increased to 30 hectares. Approach to winemaking is based on the principle that the most important characteristics of the blame attached to the terroir, the vine and the environment. "Frankland Estate" aims to make wines that reflect the nature, rather than skill winemaker. This philosophy is the foundation of commitment to sustainable agriculture and the cultivation of the land in accordance with the cycles of nature. Soil health management in vineyards is carefully controlled and guarded. Natural fertilizer made from waste wineries and insect activity regulates flock of guinea fowl living in the vineyards. In 2009, the vineyards "Frankland Estate" received an official organic certification ACO (Australian Certified Organics).
