The heritage of Killerby lives with original founder Dr Benjamin Barry Killerby who in 1973 planted one of the first vineyard in WA’s Geographe wine region with cuttings from his friends, Dr Bill Pannell (Moss Wood) and Dr Tom Cullity (Vasse Felix).
In 2008 the wine business was purchased by Ferngrove who continue to make excellent Margaret River wines under the Killerby label from their state-of-the-art winery in Frankland River, which can be tasted from the contemporary Margaret River Cellar Store.
Killerby maintains its small winery essence with most of its winemaking techniques and philosophies remaining the same since it was first established. The wine is made using small batch techniques; high quality French oak barrels and meticulous attention to detail. The wines are made from select parcels of fruit from some of the best vineyard sites in Margaret River.
Situated adjacent to the Cheeky Monkey Cidery, Brewery and Restaurant, the cellar door was designed leading interior architects to make wine tasting less intimidating. The cellar door has perhaps Australia’s longest tasting bench with a purpose-built cheese and meat larder. Killerby Cellar Store is open daily from 10am to 5pm for cellar door sales, wine tastings, coffee, food and wine.
A vast selection of gourmet produce is available including pasta, local and imported cheese, local coffee, jams, vinegars, truffle products, chocolate and more. An outdoor play area makes it a great place for kids.
