The 10 hectare property was purchased in 1991 by Phil and Mary Smith, who wished to partake in horticulture from a base nearby Bunbury where Phil works as an anaesthetist. The property was planted with citrus trees and table grapes, before they made the exciting progression to wine grapes on the estate in 1997. Subsequent plantings ensued . With focus on extraction and blending to craft the perfect wine, with minimal impact the team at Saint Aidan aim to create 'Art in a Bottle'.
Home grown varietals include Chardonnay, Cabernet, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Malbec and Tempranillo.
Nestled between the Sauvignon and Semillon vines and the Ferguson River is the rammed earth Cellar Door Restaurant. The building was sympathetically designed to blend in with the surroundings and reflect the design of the neighbouring Church from where the estate takes its name. Saint Aidan's award-winning wines can be sampled Monday to Friday 11am - 4pm, and weekends 11am - 5pm. A large range of homemade preserves like ‘Grandmas Tomato Relish’ are also available to purchase, as is a range of artwork from regional artists.
The Cellar Door Restaurant Menu focuses on the best seasonal offerings, using local ingredients wherever possible for soups, mains and sumptious desserts. The recently refurbished space can seat up to 60 guests in climate controlled comfort.
There are also picnic and gas barbecue facilities under the Peppermint trees at the estate, on the banks of the Ferguson River with plenty of space and family cricket games are welcomed!
St Aidan Wines also hosts a variety of Events throughout the year from their Summer Film on the Ferguson Outdoor Cinema to the iconic Annual Tempranillo Tasting Day in August.
The 150 seat Function Centre adjacent to the Cellar Door is an ideal Venue for Weddings, Corporate or other Special Events.

Back in 1989, a Kiwi girl named Pip met a West Aussie boy named Mark whilst working in Melbourne. The two shared a love of all things to do with wine, and in 1997 relocated to WA, purchasing a 10 acre property near Harvey (that was later named Vineyard 28). Some twenty years later, the property now boasts an extensive vineyard planted with mostly Italian varieties.
'28' is the colloquial name for the Port Lincoln Ringneck, a local parrot, due to their contact call, a whistled "twenty-eight". When planting the first vines, these cheeky birds were a little too helpful, thus it was decided to take their name for the property.
Enjoy Italian varieties - Arneis, Dolcetto, Moscato and Nebbiolo wines alongside classic Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cellar Door - Open 10am to 5pm - Thursday to Sunday
It was a family effort to create the cellar door, built from Lake Clifton limestone in 2005. Brimming with colour, vibrancy and of course, wine, the cellar door offers friendly tastings of lesser seen Piedmontese grape varieties and is open Thursday to Monday from 10am - 5pm.
Indulge all your senses with an extensive range of wines, that cater to all tastes, from crisp dry whites, to rich robust reds, and some sweeter styles as well.
They offer a range of fine wine experiences accompanied by locally sourced produce, all served with good old fashioned hospitality, hosted in their purpose built limestone cellar door. Enjoy the peace of the forest surrounds and panoramic views over farmland to the Eastern Scarp.
Basic wine tasting starts at $2 per person.
The cellar door also features a spacious picnic area and barbecue facilities for a BYO lunch, and a unique collection of colourful Patchwork Quilts and works by local artists.
