Warwick Lavis and Geoff and Karyn Cross purchased the then-named Peperilly Estate in 2003. Situated in the picturesque Ferguson Valley in the hills of Geographe wine region, the first vines were planted in 1999 on sloping hillsides; with superb red gravelly loam soils and full access to the coastal breeze of the Indian Ocean. West Australian Peppermint Trees line the Henty Brook, the natural water source for the estate's vineyard. Winemaker Michael Ng was born in China and worked vintages in Turkey, New Zealand and St-Emillon before returning to Western Australia.
The owners are committed to producing signature, terroir-driven wines that pair well with food. Varieties include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Grenache and Mourvedre, which are available to purchase online.

Situated in one of the most elevated areas of the Ferguson Valley, development of the Talisman vineyard began in 1999 by Kim and Jenny Robinson. The unique site is surrounded by the Wellington National Park, with select grape varieties matched with the property's soil types and sloping landscapes. The superb quality fruit of the vineyard, which is grown under the watchful eye of Victor Bertola, is complemented by the delicate style of acclaimed winemaker Peter Stanlake. The winery was notably awarded 'Small Producer of the Year' in 2017 by the West Australian Wine Guide.
Tastings of Talisman wines take weekly at the Subiaco Farmers Market. There is currently no cellar door at the property, but watch this space.
Talisman's range includes Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Malbec, Malbec, Zinfandel, Riesling and Merlot.
