Warwick Lavis and Geoff and Karyn Cross purchased the then-named Peperilly Estate in 2003. Situated in the picturesque Ferguson Valley in the hills of Geographe wine region, the first vines were planted in 1999 on sloping hillsides; with superb red gravelly loam soils and full access to the coastal breeze of the Indian Ocean. West Australian Peppermint Trees line the Henty Brook, the natural water source for the estate's vineyard. Winemaker Michael Ng was born in China and worked vintages in Turkey, New Zealand and St-Emillon before returning to Western Australia.
The owners are committed to producing signature, terroir-driven wines that pair well with food. Varieties include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Grenache and Mourvedre, which are available to purchase online.
