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.
