Brumfield Winery was founded over 20 years ago before we became an official winery. We’re located on the red volcanic soils of Seville in the Upper Yarra Valley. On our property we make small batch wines from our estate grown vines. The Upper Yarra Valley is the higher elevation and cooler than the Yarra Valley floor. It produces high quality cool climate grapes along with other amazing produce grown in the area.
In 2016 we introduced a range of sourdough bread range of breads which we sell locally under the “Frog n’ Duck label. Frog n’ Duck is about sustainable farming and when you look after your land you see and hear frogs and ducks enjoying your property.
We then introduced SLAQ Brewing in 2018, run by Li. Hand crafted beers made in a micro (yes, true micro-brewery) on the property. We also now grow some of the hops that Li uses to produce the beers.
We are proud of all our products being handcrafted and produced with as much local ingredients where ever possible. Such a dedicated approach to farming provides the highest of quality products that are truly artisan and offers you a first-hand experience from farm to bottle.
SLAQ Brewing (Soar like a quail). SLAQ Brewery is a small batch, family owned and operated, independent brewery in Seville, Victoria.
Production began in late 2018 at our winery in Seville, where we pour fresh from our taps, and sell speciality hand brewed beers in cans. Brewer, Li has a handy skill set of being a professional chef for over 15 years, cooking in restaurants at various venues across Melbourne and surrounding areas.
This led to cooking abroad in London and Canada. While love living the kitchen life, Li discovered beer. A winemaker’s daughter became a craft beer enthusiast. Home brewing became an interest and a hobby. Then an opportunity to work in a kitchen in a budding commercial brewery opened her eyes to larger scale and commercial brewing.
Returning, inspired, SLAQ Brewery began to take shape. Brewing the beers she likes to drink and using the hops grown on the property at Seville, is a dream com true. Brewing with a nod to tradition, but a liberating freestyle and creative flair.
SLAQ’s goal is to continue lovingly creating small batch, hand made beers, that we love to drink, while responsibly sourcing ingredients produced closer to home.
In time SLAQ brewing will have a small list of standard SLAQ brewing beers with 1 or 2 small batches of special beers to try at cellar door. Don’t be surprised if wine and beer overlap. We have already produced a Cabernet Sauvignon NEIPA beer. Beer is available for take away in cans.
SLAQ Brewing is family owned and a true micro brewery producing small batches from 50 litres to 600 litres.
The name “Frog n’ Duck” evolved as we slowly helped our land to recover from more intensive farming. Minimising chemicals, planting hundreds of native trees, and being mindful of nature in all our farming has brought back native birds, bees, frogs and ducks.
Gradually, too, a passion for baking yeasted breads evolved into creating Sourdough bread. The gift of a small jar of starter opened to a glorious world of natural bread. Beautiful biodynamic flours, filtered rain water and good sea salt, together with the wonderfully rich starter, combined, and fermented over several days results in real, tasty, sourdough bread.
