Herbalist and botanist team, Bree and Paul Hoffman have a love for nature and strive to maintain biocultural diversity at their boutique winery, while still producing a variety of one-of-a-kind wines.
Their mission to preserve the historical character of the estate and local vineyards and to support local growers who practice organic viticulture, to protect, preserve, respect and resist trends, whilst still producing incredible tasting wines and bringing together the local community.
Passionate about maintaining biocultural diversity of the valley, all wines produced are fermented with indigenous yeasts and do not contain enzymes or other chemical additions. Paul’s interest in the integration of agricultural and natural systems is reflected in their wines.
They vines are dry-grown and carefully tended by hand to produce tiny yields of intensely flavoured fruit. Several wines are made from chenin blanc and grenache, which Paul believes are the region’s greatest varieties. Alternative varieties are produced using grapes sourced from like-minded growers in the region, including: greco bianco, malvasia, aleatico, tannat, mourvedré and tempranillo, some of which are poured in Perth’s best wine bars.
Open Friday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.
