Description

The land on which the Ducketts Mill winery is located started out with a small 5 acre planting of riesling, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Additional plantings have increased the total vineyard area to 18 acres. 

Combining their love for cheese and wine, Ross and Dallas Lewis run a homely cellar door nestled in the lush Scotsdale Valley.  Set in an old timber farmstead and overlooking the vineyard, visitors can settle back and enjoy cheese platters matched to the cool-climate wines from the estate in Denmark. 

There are more than 40 varieties of cheese made under the Denmark Farmhouse Cheese brand and everything is made from locally sourced dairy produce. Left over milk is used to make ice-cream and fudge.

The Wines
Winemaker James Kellie is responsible for the concise collection of wines at Duckett’s Mill.  Sauvignon blanc, riesling, semillon, chardonnay, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and franc are all grown on the estate vineyards.  There is also a small collection of fortified wines, which are well-matched to the generous cheese and meat platters.

Wine Tasting
All wines and cheeses are available for tasting at the cellar door on Scotsdale Road from Monday to Sunday, 10-5.

Unique Highlights
Cheese, jam, chutney, fudge, premium home-made ice-cream and wines are all made at Duckett’s Mill and are available for purchase at the cellar door.

Description

Located nearby Denmark, Yilgarnia is the geological name for a region of Western Australia formed more than 2 billion years ago. Established in 1997 by Peter and Anthony Buxton, the vineyard has north-facing slopes with stunning views of the Hay River Valley, Wilson Inlet and the hills surrounding Denmark. The influence of the Southern Ocean's climate on the vineyard is significant and enables the production of colourful, aromatic, cool-climate wines.

The Wines

Yilgarnia is highly recognised for its Sauvignon Blanc, which James Halliday suggested is the signature wine and one of the best of its kind in Australia. The hand-crafted, estate-grown range also includes three sparkling wines and a selection of Cabernet blends, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon wines are also made.

Cellar Door

Reopening in 2019 is the cellar door, which offers tastings with some of the region’s most spectacular views across the vineyard, lush farmlands and wildflowers.
