Description

Originally an orchard for stone fruit, pears and apples, the La Fattoria vineyard was established in 2012 by the Radice family with the planting of 11 Italian varieties. By nature of their native climates, Italian varieties are well suited to Australia's warm and dry grape-growing conditions, like those of the Perth Hills.

The Wines

La Fattoria is home to one of WA’s widest Italian wine ranges,  with varieties including Barbera, Sparkling Vermentino, Fiano, Sangiovese, Vermentino, Biancone, Sparkling Brachetto, Nebbiolo, Sparkling Pignoletto, Primitivo and Sagrantino.

Cellar Door

In Italy, wine is typically served with food during family gatherings. With this philosophy in mind, the La Fattoria cellar door showcases its wines as wine flights, available with or without traditional antipasto, and always accompanied by a friendly chat with the winery's 'family'. 'Conversation with Italy' wine flights are $10 per person and include piccolo antipasto and tastings of five wines.

The Food

Enjoy lunch just like Nonna makes it at the estate's cosy trattoria, featuring a set menu of delectable Italian dishes designed to be shared among loved ones. The culinary experience includes a wine tasting and a rustic Italian menu created from locally-sourced, seasonal produce. Alternatively, select a range of antipasto items with La Fattoria’s 'pick your own platter' or homemade coffee and cake. Open Thursday to Sunday 11:30am to 4pm.

Unique Highlights

Experience grape-picking during the vineyard's harvest to gain an enjoyable insight into the estate's winemaking process. Join the 'La Famiglia' club online to gain access to these exclusive events.

Description

Millbrook Winery is situated in the picturesque wine region of the Perth Hills, a 50 minute drive south-east of Perth. It is located on a historic property called the Chestnut Farm that was established in the 19th century as an orchard and planted with grapevines in 1865 to provide fruit to the local timber-millers in Jarrahdale.

Owners Peter and Lee Fogarty set their sights on winemaking, planting vines in 1996 and in 2001 a stunning winery, including a tasting room and restaurant was completed.

The Wines

The attraction to the Perth Hills was the uncanny similarities to the Northern Rhône region. Shiraz and Viognier were chosen as the two flagship varieties and have become recognised as excellent examples of both styles. The fruit grown on the Estate is high quality with low yields a core objective and a small batch winemaking approach is followed.

Millbrook, together with the iconic Lake’s Folly vineyard in the Hunter Valley, Evans and Tate in Margaret River, Deep Woods Estate in Margaret River and Smithbrook Wines in Pemberton, forms part of the Fogarty Wine Group.

Wine Tasting

The cellar door is in a striking stone chateau-like property with spectacular views and an open fireplace for winter. It is open Thursday to Monday 10am to 5pm offering tastings until 4:45pm and a light menu until 4:30pm. Group tastings can be arranged in advance.  

The Food

The Millbrook restaurant is rated one of the top restaurants in WA by the West Australian Good Food Guide (2018) and is a Gourmet Traveller Top 100 Australian Restaurant (2018). Head Chef, Guy Jeffreys is known for his dedicated 'garden to plate' philosophy. When he's not in the kitchen, he is in the Millbrook Estate garden, selecting fruit, vegetables and herbs from the more than 100 varieties he grows there. Throughout 2017, Millbrook Restaurant didn’t place a single order for vegetables! Open for lunch Thursday to Monday. Bookings are essential.

For something less formal, pre-book a picnic hamper, filled with an array seasonal snacks and treats to enjoy on the estate’s stunning grounds.

The Wines
Stringybark vineyard is one of the oldest in the Chittering Valley and produces a limited quantity of hand-picked Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Verdelho grapes. This limited production combined with the special regional characteristics of the Chittering Valley helps to produce wines with intensity and distinctive varietal character.

Description

Established in 2000, Western Range Wines is an award-winning winery situated within the picturesque Chittering Valley. Just under an hour northeast of Perth, the Chittering Valley is far-removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. The region’s topography is responsible for a number of microclimates suitable for different grape varieties. The climate is typically Mediterranean with cool, wet winters, ideal for retaining acid structure and flavour.

The hillside location and modern vinification equipment allows for efficient and gentle handling, respecting the varietal characteristics of the grapes. Minimal winemaking handling techniques are employed to enhance freshness and character of the aromatic white varieties. In contrast, traditional winemaking techniques are employed on red varieties, with open fermenters and barrel aging to produce elegant, modern expressions of each variety. Western Range Wines are currently exported into Canada, China, France, Poland, Russia and Japan.

Cellar Door
The current Cellar Door facility is an original weatherboard building, which has been converted into a cosy tasting room and sales area. Light meals, snacks and hampers are available whilst enjoying well informed wine tastings.
