Drawn to Denmark for its natural beauty, New Zealanders Graham and Kelly Howard acquired the Whitfield Estate vineyard in 2005. Since then, they built a cellar door/café, established a herd of cattle, established a chocolate factory and overhauled their viticulture program to grow better quality wines. The vineyard is located in gravelly loam soil amidst tall Marri and Jarrah trees and moving towards a biodynamic viticulture program.
Whitfield's range of premium, estate-grown wines feature Chardonnay, Shiraz and a traditional method Blanc de Blancs. Wines can be purchased online or at the Whitfield cellar door, which is open by appointment only and enjoys gorgeous views across to Mount Lindesay.
The Howards also operate the Pawprint Chocolate Factory shop located in Denmark town, which features mouthwatering boxed chocolates, brownies, dukkah, rocky road and hot chocolate mixes. Free tastings are available alongside sensational coffees, rich hot chocolates and iced drinks to enjoy in-store or takeaway. Open Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm.
