Description

Located just 5 minutes from Bridgetown, Sunnyhurst Winery Estate is on the grounds of the historic 1896 Sunnyhurst Homestead which was known to be headquarters for the Red Cross during WWII. Since its establishment as a vineyard and winery in 2000, Sunnyhurst has used traditional winemaking methods and organic inspired viticulture. Currently owned by Geoff Herbert and Marie-Pierre Dussault, the Sunnyhurst philosophy emphasises hand-picked quality grapes, and the production of premium quality wines that reflect the taste of the region.

The white wines have great delicacy and flavour from a long cool fermentation, and reds are left to age in French oak that are recycled from Burgundy. All aspects of wine production are undertaken onsite, including bottling, corking, capsuling and labelling.

The Wines

Sunnyhurst varieties include Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Shiraz, Petit Verdot and a Ruby Port.

Cellar Door

The beautiful cellar door and art gallery at Sunnyhurst is open 7 days a week from 11am to 6pm. Owner Marie-Pierre Dussault provides complimentary tastings of the winery's award-winning wines. The cellar door area is very family friendly, featuring a kids' corner with wooden toys and colouring-in activities.

Unique Highlights

Customers are invited to wander through the beautiful gardens, admire the views of the Mattamatup and Blackwood River valleys and get a glimpse of the vineyard. The estate's romantic gardens display a collection of more than 600 rare and heritage roses, and an eclectic range of cottage plants and fruit trees - including an ancient, gigantic Moreton bay fig tree which dominates much of the property.
