Nestled in the Cowaramup Brook valley and the lee of the Leeuwin Ridge in the Margaret River sub region of Wilyabrup, Grace Farm is a small, family-owned vineyard that uses organic principles to produce premium handcrafted wines.
Owned by John and Elizabeth Mair, Grace Farm was planted in 2006 and the first vintage produced in 2010. Grace Farm was one of the first vineyards in the district to plant the vines into weed-matting, avoiding the use of herbicide sprays which often accompany vineyard establishment. The Mair family has a keen interest in the unique biodiversity values present on Grace Farm. Floristic and avian fauna surveys have been carried out and monitoring of populations is ongoing.
The farmhouse was designed according to solar passive design principles and supports a roof-top solar array which feeds excess power back into the electricity grid, helping to reduce the property’s carbon footprint.
The award-winning range includes a barrel-matured Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Burgundian style Chardonnay and two quintessential Margaret River style Cabernets.
Private tastings can be booked. They are held on the deck of the farmhouse in the company of viticulturist Tim Quinlan and include the opportunity to sample all wines while enjoying views over the vineyard and valley. A tour of the vineyard may also be included. Winemaker Jonathan Mettam is often present for larger group bookings.
