Description

At Butler Crest the skills of viticulturist Andy Ferreira and winemaker Bruce Dukes combine to make a fantastic range of quality, value for money, regional wines. Following extensive terrain and soil analysis, this unique Wilyabrup vineyard was planted with Caberent Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

The Butler Crest stems from Normandy, and the story of Herveius Walter who accompanied William the Conqueror to England in 1066 as his trusted ‘le Botiler’ or wine bearer. The name ‘Botiler’ was passed down through generations of Walter’s family – notably his grandson, Theobald, who journeyed to Ireland with Henry II. The title was eventually anglicised to ‘Butler’. The original duties included selecting and presenting the first cup of wine to the King and the butler crest was depicted on golden cups in the Second Quarter.

Butler Crest winery keeps this tradition alive in selecting and presenting its fine wines from Margaret River to the world.

The winery makes wines under two labels; Handcrafted and Tabletalk. The varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Blends.
