Summer of Riesling at Whicher Ridge Continues Through January & February

To celebrate the perfect match of Riesling and Summer, we will have an older vintage of Riesling open for tasting at our Cellar Door each day, along with our current release 2011 Frankland River Riesling. We will also have available for sale at Cellar Door only, a Riesling Collection Case, made up of a selection of our 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Rieslings.

All of our Rieslings have been highly regarded by Wine Writers over the past few years, and this is a "once in a year" opportunity to acquire your collection of our Rieslings from our first release 2009 through to our pre-release 2012.

We look forward to seeing you at our Cellar Door over Summer!
