About Us


Scott Harrington established Biota Orchards in Harcourt, the heart of Central Victoria’s premier apple growing region with the purchase of a mature apple orchard that has a history dating back to the gold rush of the 1850’s.


With over 20 years’ experience in the wine industry as a Viticulturist and Vigneron, including stints in Central Victoria, Yarra and Hunter Valleys, Scott has decided to turn his hand to the noble craft of cider making.


Owning the orchard means Scott can exert his meticulous control over every stage of the product development, from tending the fruit on the trees right through to bottling the finished cider.
