Take the road less travelled and discover a hidden gem crafting small batch, single vineyard wines

Our winery is small, owned and operated by a dynamic team of two, Neil and Cathy Howard. We are a vigneron and winemaker couple with a combined 50 years of experience between us. We take a ‘hands-on’ approach to the growing of our grapes and the making of our wines, and we have a ‘tread lightly on the earth’ philosophy with our sustainable farming practices.

Our winery, vineyard, cellar door and wine sensory garden are located only 20 minutes from Busselton and 40 minutes from Margaret River. We are dog friendly winery, so bring your pooch along to meet us and Polly the wine dog.

Handcrafted, artisan wines

Our wines are small batch, single vineyard wines made from vines growing in the ancient soils of three of Australia’s most isolated wine regions, Margaret River, Geographe and the Great Southern.

Each of our wines  are full of varietal and terroir specific flavours, made in styles which celebrate their provenance and which also pair well with food. Our wines have texture, flavour intensity, length and balance.

Visit our wine sensory garden near Busselton

Our Wine Sensory Garden is a truly unique wine experience being the only one of it’s kind in Australia. The Garden is designed in a figure eight, infinity shape with sections themed for seven different wine varieties. For each wine there is a ‘Descriptor Bed’ planted with fruit trees, flowers and herbs which describe the aromas and flavours in that wine. The adjacent ‘Affinity Bed’ has plantings of fruit trees, seasonal vegetables and herbs which have an affinity for, or pair with, that particular wine.

You are welcome to wander around our Garden and immerse yourself in the sights, smells and flavours of the plants at your own pace, or you can book in for a ‘Pick and Sip’ Tour.
