Description

The Nesci family first chose this valley in 1948, carving their place by hand from virgin bush. The soils of the Valley are predominantly sandy brown over clay, and as the climate is typically Mediterranean with wet winters and dry summers, ideal grape growing conditions are abundant. Additionally, the underground spring running through the estate feeds water to the vines throughout the year, ensuring the vines never suffer drought and produce consistent harvests of full flavoured grapes.

 The Wines

Varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Pedro Ximinez. Wine can be purchased at the estate or online, with some wines exported too. 

Cellar Door

Nesci Estate Wine Farm's stone and timber cellar door is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm-5pm, where tastings or glasses of wine can be enjoyed with woodfired pizzas and live music on the lawn.

Varieties include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Grenache. A small selection of non-estate white wines (Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Verdelho) are made by Rob Marshall in the Swan Valley.

Cellar Door

The spacious, contemporary cellar door is located on a hilltop, offering vast views across the valleys of Gingin. Complimentary wine tastings are available, as is the option to bring your own picnic and take full advantage of the beautiful landscape. Open from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 4pm.

Unique Highlights

Riseborough Estate is part of the Chittering Valley Wine Trail, as well as the Astronomers Abbots and Artists Trail. Additionally, a Fine Art Gallery has been established upstairs with interesting contemporary exhibitions on display. The cellar door gift shop also stocks a range of wonderful local specialties such as cheeses, olives, oils, tapenade and dukkah.
