A beautiful, ethically sound, sustainable winery which produces the best wine in the Swan Valley and dare I say it, Australia. After negotiating our way past friendly dogs and free range chickens, the friendly, knowledgeable staff went out of their way to help us. We also stocked up on organic coffee while we were there. Their organic ethos should be the benchmark that every food and drink producer in the world strives to achieve. We look forward to visiting again soon.
Good morning !
Just a very quick email to thank you so much for taking the time out to help us better understand the organic wine process and to enjoy the truly remarkable wines that you have produced.
We will most certainly be attending the pruning activity in August and look forward very much to spending time with you again and meeting other people with a similar passion.
Your wines however stand far from the madding crowd and have a great backstory and a passion that can not be ignored.

From the United States
My husband, mother and I visited the winery. My mom is visiting from the States and I wanted her to experience a good WA organic winery because the wine is different (and better). We visited the cellar door and were greeted by Duncan (owner, licensee, winemaker, comedian, labourer, etc.) and Rosie the cat. There is a $10pp tasting fee redeemable against a wine purchase. Wine-tasting is done in a methodical fashion and seated. There are about 8-10 seats. It makes it nice and relaxed. All the wines we had, Duncan and Rosie were delightful. Even though the wines are organic, the wines are competitively priced. Well worth the visit.
A hidden gem this baby was. Many tour goers hadn’t visited before and like myself on my first visit were smitten with the quality of wine on offer. We had a special lunch catered by Taylor’s Cafe in the Harris underground cellar which was a real treat. From enjoying hand disgorged sparkling wine, Verdelho, Shiraz, Malbec to devouring heavenly delights of olives, cheese, mini savoury tarts, kofta with chermoula dipping sauce and pea fritters with prosciutto. Even Rosie the cat had to join us and sweetly followed the group around between the cellar door and underground cellar (she also loved to pose for photos.). We ended our visit with a nip of organic vodka made from grapes which definitely warmed everyone up.

This unique organic port is only made every other year, in small batches. The grapes are picked from row #9 where they are left to ripen extra long before picking. It is a delightful rich red vintage with a smooth, lingering palate. Its dry finish features notes of chocolate, liquorice, and plum.

A small batch of this organic port is made each year after its grapes are fully ripened to 19 Baume (sugar level) from our organic vineyard. This port is dense and bright crimson in colour with a bouquet or black fruits and spice. The palate is rich with smooth tannins and flavours of mulberry, blackberry, and licorice.
The finish is long and persistent with the fine organic brandy spirit being well integrated.
