Harris Organic Wine - Welcome

Harris Organic Wines is the only organic winery in Perth, Western Australia.

We love caring for our vines, making organic wine and caring for the environment!

Organic Red Wine

Our carefully tended non irrigated shiraz is hand picked and basket pressed, aged in American oak for 20 months and has a plate of excellent smoothness and berry flavours. Our care is awarded some years with a Bronze Medal at the Swan Valley Wine Show. All our organic wines are certified organic by "Australian Organic". Our latest release is the 2010 Shiraz which is our highest selling organic red wine. We are very happy with our progress, celebrating 15 years of cellar door operations in 2015.

Organic White Wine

Harris Organic Wines has a fine collection of organic dry white wine including Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Verdehlo. These are all low preservative dry wine styles. All our organic wines are fermented, matured, bottled and labelled on the premises and certified organic. There are flavoursome, well rounded on the palate and a long finish showing perfect balance between fruit and acid level, perfect for your enjoyment. All are available from our cellar door or organic wine store.

Organic Fortified Wine

From the only organic brandy distiller in Australia are the only Australian certified organic fortified wine. We carefully distil our organic brandies over a wood fired pot still. The spirit is used to arrest the fermentation of the must to produce a sweet fortified wine. Try our well awarded brandy fortified liqueur shiraz, verdelho, pedro ximenez or muscadelle, which are aged for a minimum of five years in our under ground cellar. These are all available from our on-line wine store.

Organic Sparkling Wine

We also make a small quantity of traditional method (French champagne style) brut sparkling wines from Chardonnay and Shiraz in a traditional method. Traditional method means the wine in the bottle was the wine that was fermented in that bottle, before hand disgorging. These are bottled and stored in our underground cave to develop their fine bead and exquisite mousse. Named after our daughter Madeleine Claire, there is a blanc de blanc version which has a dry finish and a fine bead and a sparkling red shiraz, both certified organic by "Australian Organic". The current brut style blanc de blanc vintage is 2011.

Perth is home to Harris Organic Wines in Western Australia, who specialise in organic wine making of a variety of styles.

Wine Production
Sparkling Wines
Part of our mission concerns sustainability. Sustainability is central to Harris Organic’s philosophy of vineyard management; we favour the slow food process of wine production - vital to physical and environmental health. In wine-making we use minimal artificial energy sources. For example we built an underground cellar for naturally cooler storage temperatures while our wines likewise mature in oak barrique and hogsheads, ultimately sealed in recyclable glass bottles and natural cork. We use very small amounts of electricity in producing a litre of organic wine compared with the Australian average for wine production. The other part of our mission is to produce the best hot climate organic wines available, and as part of a peer review process we stand up well in our local wine show against all other wines from the Swan Valley region.
Harris Organic Wines vision is to produce healthy, chemical free organic wines, that are good for you and the environment. To do this our certified organic vineyard is fed with composted chicken manure and wood chips, instead of chemical fertilisers. Our organic wines, in general, are not fined or filtered with no animal additives. We are able to produce the only medal winning certified organic ports in Australia as we are self sufficient in brandy spirit production made from our own certified organic grapes.
Wine Production
From the eight grape varieties in our organic vineyard Harris Organic produces a wide range of products, whether you required traditional method sparkling, dry whites, organic dry reds, fortified dessert wines or preservative free dessert wines.

Remember when you purchase organic wine you are doing good for yourself and the environment.
