A brief history

A Place of Provenance, Discovery and Sanctuary

Provenance relates to the physical location of this very small, family owned estate in the heart of Margaret River, the great earth in which the vines grow and the maturity of the vines themselves. Discovery is about the very small quantities produced and the unique tasting experiences on offer. Sanctuary relates to the natural bushland reserve on the property, comprising some of the oldest peppermint trees in the region (as well as jarrah, marri and grass trees). A family (or Passel) of endangered Western Ringtail Possums was relocated here following the 2011 Margaret River bushfires, and the owners continue to support and provide sanctuary to endangered native species within the estate. A portion of the proceeds from every booking for a guided tasting experience goes directly towards further conservation efforts at the estate.
