The family 6 ha vineyard is located on the North facing slopes of the Hay River in the wonderful Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. Located in the suburb Forest Hill neighbouring one of WA’s oldest cool climate plantings, Forest Hill Vineyard. Our vineyard has Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Merlot, Cabernet and Shiraz all planted in 1998. I plan to plant new varieties in the future following some working holidays in Europe.

 

Biodynamic preparations and Organic practices have been employed in the vineyard since 2008, meaning no pesticide or herbicide... nothing artificial!

 

Natural winemaking process has been adopted and enjoyed for 3 vintages courtesy of Fernbrook Estate Winery

Our Shiraz vines like to grow tall and require constant trimming during the growing season.A very wet vineyard floor meant george had to follow us dutifully down the cordon wire along the arms of the vine to the bottom of the row.Our Sauvignon Blanc in full flight.
