Description

Owned and operated by Maree Tinker and Steve Johnstone, Whimwood Estate is situated alongside the Blackwood River near the old timber milling town of Nannup. The original vineyard was planted with Chardonnay vines in 2004. It was reduced significantly (and some wines grafted to Shiraz) in 2010 to focus on quality, closely monitor the fruit and select the very best grapes. Considerable effort is placed on the oak program, working with single forest selections from France to ensure the right spice, toast and flavours.

The Wines

Varieties offered at Whimwood include Rose, Chardonnay, Shiraz and a Sparkling Blanc de Blancs. The Whimwood wines have received multiple accolades from competitions including the Perth Royal Wine Show, the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards, and the National Wine Show of Australia. Wines can be tasted and purchased from the cellar door and or on the Whimwood website.

Cellar Door 

Steve and Maree welcome you to their cellar door at Whimwood, overlooking the majestic Blackwood River valley.  The cellar door  is open weekends and public holidays, 11am to 4pm and provides light lunches, including locally sourced and produced platters that compliment the range of wines.  Wine tastings and wine sales. The cellar door area is family and dog friendly.
