Description

Harvey River Estate is a family owned winery located in the acclaimed Geographe wine region of south-west Western Australia.

The family have a long and significant history in the south-west's agricultural industry with the original farm dating back to the early 1900s when the current owner's father emigrated from Italy and planted citrus a large citrus orchard. Over the following years the farm grew and the business diversified to also include sheep and cattle. Of course, like many of Italian migrants, the family made their own wines.

From humble beginnings, the second generation evolved the winery business from vineyards into wine production under the Harvey River Estate label in 1999. The first commercial vintage was produced in 2000 and the business went on to be awarded the Jimmy Watson award for its 2009 Joseph River Cabernet. 

In 2015 a new cellar door, warehouse and administration building was built on the banks of the Harvey River, being only 50m from the original cellar door which allowed access to the now famous ‘Big Orange’ on Third Street to be retained.

The Harvey River Estate vineyards are just 800m away on Fifth Street, with almost 50 acres under vine planted to Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. 

The Harvey River Estate cellar door is open daily from 10am - 4pm.

Description

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.

The Wines

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.
