Whicher Ridge

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Chapman Hill, Australia

Their story has been a long time in the making. After working for many years for highly regarded wineries across Australia, they reached a point where they were ready to ‘do their own thing’ and to start making their own wines. In 2003 they found just the perfect property to plant a vineyard in the Whicher Range at Chapman Hill, and in 2008 they released their first wines under the Whicher Ridge brand

With their vineyards, their story is focused on terroir, the French concept that encompasses everything to do with growing a grapevine. Most of their grape varieties are grown in Whicher Ridge vineyard, and others they source from grape growers who share the same passion and dedication to growing quality grapes as they do. The end result for them is that they make wines from grapes grown in three wine regions in Western Australia, Margaret River, Geographe and the Great Southern.

They offer a range of winery experiences from the traditional wine tasting in their cellar door, to several different experiences centred around their wine sensory garden.
