Located in Wilyabrup on what is widely respected as some of the finest wine grape growing terrain in the world, Pierro was planted in 1980 by a winemaker who went against the norm, Dr Mike Peterkin.
Pierro’s first wines were made the previous year, including the region’s first known Bordeaux-inspired Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blends and a Cabernet Merlot blend with Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
Made from two estate-owned vineyards in Wilyabrup, the reds are ranked among the best of the region and the stylish white wines are highly-regarded around the world. The primary Pierro vineyard produces superb-quality fruit with an emphasis on soil, aspect and a high number of vines per hectare to achieve well balanced fruit.
The winemaking approach is very hands-on, from handpicking through to bunch sorting to berry-level. Wines are made in small batches to ensure each particular vineyard area receives the attention it deserves.
The modest cellar door with its warm wooden interiors offers tastings daily.
