Small quantities and small batch winemaking is the focus of Bakheia Wines, with only 1000-1200 cases bottled each year. The wines are only available to the exclusive mailing list, limited to 400 to retain exclusivity and build mutual loyalty. Tastings of the wine is available at the vineyard by appointment only.
The wine making approach taken is minimalist with reds not fined or filtered before bottling allowing the natural settling of wine over time. Wines on offer include Grenache, Mourvedre, Graciano, Tempranillo, Shiraz, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon and sourced from the neighbors is Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc to make Fume Blanc.
Pricing of the wines is rather unique, determined directly by mailing list members who sit down, taste and talk about the quality of the wine. Bakheia Wines pride themselves on keeping honest and ego free as reflected in the philosophical label "Aequitas".

David and Anne Mazza were inspired by the great wines of Rioja and the Douro Valley, and continue a longstanding family tradition of making wine. Established in 2002 near Donnybrook, the Mazza Wines vineyard is planted with six Spanish and Portugese varieties, and is the only of its kind in the Geographe Region. The vineyard has ten acres of carefully-managed vines that receive a lot of attention, where the most labour-intensive practices are a priority in the vineyard to grow the best quality grapes.
Mazza Wines produces six red grape varieties; Bastardo, Graciano, Tempranillo, Tinta Cao, Touriga Nacional and Sousao. From these, straight varietal wines, a Tempranillo Graciano blend and fortified wines are produced.
