Description

Established by Murray and Pamela Lincoln, a couple from Perth who built a sustainable, energy efficient home and vineyard on their property nearby Albany in 2000. The winery is part of WOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farm) and offers travellers a place to stay in return for their labour on a range of viticulture and winemaking activities. Over 400 visitors have participated to date.

The organic vineyard is located in the east of the Great Southern Wine Region, where its climate and soils grow elegant fruit with minerality and natural acidity. The property also has a range of organic gardens growing plums, apples, cherries, avocado, guavas, stone fruit, olives, berries and citrus.

Key activities that underpin their approach to sustainability including recycling, composting, revegetation and the use of renewable. The pair have planted thousands of trees on the 20 acres of land and their vineyard and cellar door are powered almost entirely by solar energy.
