Located in Rosa Brook, 12 minutes south of Margaret River town and nearby a collective of quaint, rustic cellar doors. The town is known for its down to earth spirit, which is reflected at Brown Hill Estate. The winery was established in 1995 by the Bailey Family who lived in the West Australian Goldfields for four generations before relocating to Margaret River. The name Brown Hill Estate draws from this family history.
The winery has twice been named Small Producer of the Year by The West Australian Wine Guide (2009, 2010). Among the wines’ many accolades, the 2014 Perseverance Cabernet Merlot picked up an international award for ‘Best in Show’ at the 2018 Decanter Wine Awards, one of only 50 awards given out globally.
The vineyard’s gravelly produce small, intensely flavoured grapes which are nurtured into wines through traditional, boutique methods. All the fruit is grown on the estate’s vineyard, hand-picked and hand-sorted, with the finest level of attention to detail. The range focuses on Margaret River’s signature varieties.
Located inside the winery, the authentic cellar door experiences also allow visitors the unique opportunity to observe the wines being made. A huge jarrah slab resting upon oak barrels adds to the rustic charm. Open 10am to 5pm daily.
Tours hosted by a winemaker operate daily at 2.30pm and provide an insider’s look into the winemaking process, including the rare opportunity to taste barrel samples and understand the attention to detail that goes into Brown Hill Estate’s winemaking.
