A brief history
"I love wine. I love making it, drinking it, buying it and selling it. I love the crisp crack of a screwcap being twisted off a bottle, and the gurgling sound it makes being poured. Most of all I love the sweet anticipation of what lies before you in the glass. Thinking about it, it's not hard to understand how this came to be. In 1975 when I was 6 years old, my parents planted vines on the family cattle farm in Margaret River, and in 1978 made their first wines. School holidays and weekends were often spent helping out in the vineyard and winery, and sampling the finished product when no one was looking. After studying architecture in Perth and many years away, I returned to the area in 2005 and made 2 barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon in 2006, which was the birth of Hutton Wines. The rest as they say, is history. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is sourced from the Wildberry Springs Estate vineyard in Wilyabrup to make the ‘Graffiti’, 'Triptych’ and ‘Reserve’ series. ‘Graffiti’ is a fun introduction to the classic varieties of Margaret River whilst the ‘Triptych’ and ‘Reserve’ wines are the finest expression of vineyard and vintage. I hope you enjoy these wines and share the love."
