Description

A regional pioneer, Plantagenet Wines was planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vines in 1968 by founder Tony Smith. The first wines were made in 1974 and showed great potential, encouraging Tony to convert a local apple packing shed into a winery and keep making what are now regarded amongst Australia’s most respected examples of Cabernet and Shiraz. Subsequent vineyards were planted, and fruit now comes from five estate-owned properties around the Mount Barker area.

Western Australia’s oldest family business Lionel Samson & Son acquired Plantagenet in 1999 and the estate continues to grow from strength to strength, with an international reputation for its Rieslings, Chardonnays, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Tasting

The mudbrick and timber cellar door, surrounded by stunning garden and historic vines make a beautiful setting in which to explore the Plantagenet wine range. Wines can be tasted daily between 10.30am – 4pm.

The Food

Alongside the cellar door is ‘The Shed’, Plantagenet’s café, serving lunch daily. The menu is a unique blend of contemporary and casual, with hearty dishes that pair with the wines. Dining can be enjoyed from the alfresco deck, or beside the fireplace in winter.

Description

Founded in 1997, West Cape Howe quickly grew a reputation as one of Western Australia’s most popular wine brands and was named Australia’s ‘Best Value Winery’ by James Halliday in 2016.

Wines are grown at two estate vineyards, the most significant being their Langton Vineyard, one of the Great Southern Region’s earliest planted vineyards, established in Mount Barker in 1978. This site grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling and Shiraz and has produced many trophy winning wines. The vineyards are managed with a holistic approach and use of natural management practices where possible. The wines are made at West Cape Howe’s state-of-the-art winery in Mount Barker.

Four tiers of wines are made representing a broad selection of regional hero varieties with a few surprises too.

Located 45 minutes north of Albany, the West Cape Howe Cellar Door offers wine tastings daily from 10am to 5pm on weekdays and 11am to 4pm on weekends.
