Description

Established in 1982 by Bill and son Rob Wignall, the Wignalls Wines began following research that suggestedtheir farm was well-suited to the famous Burgundian varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. They established an onsite winery, and son Rob took up a winemaking role and the wine operation was underway. First vintages saw amazing results with trophies and gold medals for both Pinot and Chardonnay. Over sixty trophies and gold medals have been won by the family estate to date.

While Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the focus, Cabernet Merlot, Shiraz and Rose are also made.

Cellar Door

A rustic cellar door was built with stones from the vineyard and local 2006. It was established from an old hay shed on the property.

Located on the outer edge of Albany, Wignalls Wines is conveniently located for an  outing with great wines to taste and a beautifully picturesque setting. Open 11am - 4pm, closed June to August.

Description

The winery was started by brothers Murray and Iain Montgomery - both have always had a passion for good wine, which led them with their wives to develop the Kalgan property and the rammed-earth cellar door facility.

In a new chapter, new owners Phil and Michelle have big plans for Montgomerys! They are in the process of redeveloping the cellar door to be a tavern - which will have one of the best outlooks in the Great Southern! Along with food sourced locally it will also feature local wines and beers and offer something for every palate.

RAYMOND WILLIAMS;  VITICULTURIST


Ray commenced his career at Goundreys in Mount Barker where he became responsible for the entire estate vineyards. Subsequently, with significant knowledge of the climate and soils of the Great Southern, he established his own viticultural consultancy and now manages a number of independent vineyards including Montgomery’s Hill which he helped plan and establish.

QUALITY CONTROL


Ray Williams runs a very strict operation as far as the total wellbeing of the vineyard is concerned. The Cellar door and storage area was built away from the vineyard on Ray Williams’ advice to keep the public away from the vines for prevention of disease reasons. Montgomery’s Hill vineyard is quite idyllically situated with the closest vineyard being 10km from it. Consultants are employed during the winemaking process to ensure a quality product is produced from the excellent fruit grown at Montgomery’s Hill.

ALBANY GREAT SOUTHERN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA


Early explorer, T.B Wilson MD Surgeon RN came up the Kalgan River in a longboat during an 1834-35 expedition exploring the hinterland around the settlement of Albany . He wrote in his journal about the area which now comprises Montgomery’s Hill vineyard “this would be the place to grow the vine”.

The vines were planted in 1996 and have produced some excellent wines that have won numerous medals, including the 2007 Wine Wise Chardonnay trophy for the best wine under 300 tonne production in Australia.

The cellar sales outlet is open daily from 11am to 5pm (Winter months June to August 12noon to 4pm). Cheese platters are available and can be enjoyed with a glass whilst sitting on the verandah enjoying the view.
