History

Marc Besen arrived in Australia in 1947 on a study visa. Those familiar with his endeavours know him as a major player in Australia’s fashion industry alongside John Gandel, but many who ‘make a day’ of TarraWarra Estate know little about the brilliant man behind it. An avid supporter of Victorian and Australian arts, Marc Besen bought the TarraWarra Estate land in 1979 with his wife, Eva. The first 10 acres of vines were planted in 1983 with a vision to create something beautiful for others to enjoy.

Forty years on, the 28 hectare vineyard sits on prime Yarra Valley farmland, defined by heritage and a deep sense of place. TarraWarra Estate is best known for exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, alongside other single-block heritage varietals and estate blends. The TarraWarra Estate property is internationally renowned as the place visit in the Yarra Valley, rooted by the Estate’s respect for sustainability and provenance.

Now in his nineties, Marc Besen is always looking to the future for how best to share his love of wine. Most recently this materialised as a new, architecturally designed Cellar Door. Through the Estate, he has successfully created a destination that epitomises the Australian spirit of sharing.
