Originally planted in 2001, the Alicia Estate Vineyard was established by Alicia and Jacob, a tenacious couple who brought their winemaking dreams from Europe. Jacob's father and grandfather were wine and spirit merchants in Silesia for decades, and Alicia's mother, born in France, possessed an extensive knowledge of French winemaking methods and cuisine. This family influence and passion for wine and good food planted the seed which grew to include a winery and popular restaurant that have been operating since 2010.
All of Alicia Estate's wines are organically grown, and include varieties of Shiraz, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and their signature Black Knight Honey Mead. Produced from a Medieval recipe originating from Bernadine and Capuchin monasteries, the estate's Honey Mead is made from honey sourced from their own beehives.
The cellar door at Alicia Estate is open Fridays 10am-3:30pm and weekends from 10am-4pm.
The restaurant serves an extensive a la carte menu of featuring 30+ dishes of traditional German, Swiss and Austrian recipes to complement the styles and varieties of wine produced on the estate.

Enjoying a climate reminiscent of Portugal’s famous Duoro Valley, Beltana Springs’ vines are grown in ideal conditions of cold winter dormancy and hot, dry summers. First planted in 2000 on the property’s best Red Gum soils, the vines of Beltana Springs are hand-picked from low yielding vines to ensure premium ripe grape extraction. Beltana Springs wines are exported to the UK, US and other major markets, but also available for purchase on their website.
The Shiraz is Beltana Springs’ flagship wine and was awarded the Bronze medal at the West Australian Wheatbelt Wine Awards. A deep purple-hue with a hint of Australian forest, the wine is aged for twenty four months in new European oak barrels, giving added complexity and a smooth and long finish. Beltana’s Grenache, conversely, presents a rich and clear colour, offering red berries and the menthol of the Red Gums growing within the vineyard. Also matured in new European oak, the Grenache’s palate is full-bodied and intensely flavoured, with strong, ripe tannins and a long finish. The vineyard also offers a Grenache Rose and a Cabernet Sauvignon.
Discover traditional, family-made wines from one of WA's oldest, heritage-listed and photogenic cellar doors, surrounded by natural springs and walking distance from the historic Ringa Bridge.

Established in the late 1870s, this family-owned property, about 6km from Toodyay has over five generations of winemaking history. The winery has been in the Wood family since 1919, and still contains many of the original 470 and 770 gallon casks within its cellar.
All grapes are grown on scenic undulating slopes around the property, and are farmed with environmental conservation as one of the winery's main values. The natural approach sees only mineral fertilisers and soil microbes used to grow chemical-free, quality grapes.
Coorinja produces a large selection of table and fortified wines including Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet-Shiraz, Port, Sherry, Muscat, Liqueur Muscat, Ginger Wine and Marsala. The wines are handpicked by the Wood family and their friends and pressed in an old wooden basket press, following the same family tradition used for over five generations.
Open Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays from 10am-5pm, or on alternate days by appointment only.
Coorinja is an Aboriginal word believed to mean "place of the seven springs". These natural springs surround the property. A short five minute walk down a bush track reveals remnants of the Ringa Bridge, a significant railway track built circa 1887 that was closed down in 1966.
