Description

Faber is Latin for a smith, a craftsman, an artisan who is skilled and ingenious. Owners John Griffiths and Jane Micallef founded the vineyard with a mission to grow regionally distinctive grapes and craft wines that are rich and flavoursome. They are true believers in the tradition of wine making, that wine should be inspired, crafted with a sense of creating something distinctive and authentic,

The wines are crafted with the belief that wine should taste of grapes and rely on purity of fruit flavour and delicious fruit characters to drive their wines, and that weight and fullness should come from ripeness, an extension of flavour, not simply more tannin or more acid. They want their wines to ‘sing of their origins’ and highlight the fruit from which the wine is made, not disguise it, and result in wines that are fresh and appealing with great drinkability.

Priding themselves on being extremely exclusive, the cellar door offers unique sit-down style tasting sessions with share platters and plenty of time to chat.

Themed events are also very popular including Harvest Breakfast, Reserve Release Dinner, Winter Benchmark Tasting, Bring Your Favourite Bottle, Spring Long Table Lunch and Xmas BBQ.
Faber Vineyards also caters for weddings, seminars, cocktail parties and large sit-down dinners.

Faber Vineyard is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am- 4pm.

HISTORY

Duje Garbin, founder of Garbin Estate, learnt his winemaking craft in between fishing on a small island in the Adriatic Sea. It was basic stuff, but ideally suited to the family needs. As a migrant to Western Australia in 1937, he saved his money and purchased a property at Millendon in the Swan Valley, then Middle Swan in 1956. The Garbin business was built up on bulk wine, some 2000-3000 gallons a year, delivered around the suburbs or purchased by customers visiting the property. Upon retiring Duje’s son, Peter, took over Garbin Estate Wines (GEW). Over the last 20 years, GEW has undergone a massive transition including a new cellar door and processing area, upgraded major plant and equipment and established a vineyard in Gingin, 90 minutes from Perth CBD.

THE BORDEAUX WAY

Grapes are carefully hand harvested and crushed immediately, then pressed in a traditional basket press. The juice is settled for debourdage at 2°C. for at least forty eight hours. Fermentation takes place at a constant 15° C with a secret selection of yeast strain added for each wine. No sulphur dioxide is used until after the fermentation is completed.

Chardonnay, Viognier and Marsanne are never wooded, but are kept on the fine lees, after a first racking, for several months. Noble Classic undergo a subtle wood aging for a short period.White Wines are usually bottled after eight months.

Vatting of the reds varies from year to year but is never less than two weeks and can be for up to a month. After vatting a light pressing is done after which the wine settles and undergoes malolactic fermentation in closed stainless steel tanks at between 15° and 18°C.

After a month or so the wines are transferred into French oak barrique for between fifteen and twenty four months.

In the words of Sir James Stirling: “The richness of the soil, the bright foliage of the shrubs, the majesty of the surrounding trees, the abrupt and red coloured banks of the River occasionally seen, and the view of the blue summits of the mountains from which we were not far distant, made the scenery around this spot as beautiful as anything or kind I had ever witnessed.”

Description

The Olive Farm property dates back to 1829 and was established by an English botanist named Thomas Waters who brought grapevine cuttings and olive trees with him when he settled in Perth. He planted the olive trees first, hence the name, but wine was soon produced, with the first vintage in 1834. (Much of which became currency for bartering with the local shopkeepers!)

In 1933, Ivan Yurisich purchased the property. He had immigrated from Yugoslavia at the turn of the century and after working in the Goldfields and outback of WA, decided to try his hand at winemaking. The property has remained in the family for four generations.

The Wines
Historically, The Olive Farm made fortified wines which were sold by the cask to the Goldfields in Western Australia. The winery become one of the first in WA to produce Traditional Method Sparkling wines back in the 1960s. These remain a core of range which is now named ‘Olivine’.

Still table wines were introduced in the 1970s and achieved great success in the local wine shows. The current range is diverse, with over 35 sweet to dry white, red, sparkling and fortified wines. There are all the Swan Valley classics, along with some other surprise varieties like Tempranillo, Traminer, Durif and Cabernet Franc.

Wine Tasting
The Yurisich family built their ‘dream’ winery and cellar door in 2007. It is set on a 24-acre property in the heart of the Swan Valley and has received significant awards for its architecture and interior design. Visitors are welcome to sample from the full range of wines, with tastings available 10am – 5pm daily. A walking tour of the vineyard and winery can be booked in advance, it begins at 10.30am.

Unique Highlights: The Cheese

HISTORY

Pinelli Wines was established in the Swan Valley in 1980 by Domenic and Iolanda Pinelli. Having emigrated to Australia from the Molise region of Italy in the mid 1950's, they shared a vision to create a family winery incorporating their Italian heritage, which recognised that good wine needed to be a part of every dining experience.
Domenic gained invaluable experience working for over twenty years with the iconic Western Australian producer of the 1960s, Waldeck Wines, and purchased what he referred to as "the pick of the vineyards of the area" - a 7 acre block in Caversham, Western Australia.

Domenic and Iolanda shared the knowledge and joy of winemaking with their sons Robert and Daniel, ensuring that the winery would continue to grow with future generations. A simple philosophy of ensuring exceptional quality from the vineyard to the glass has meant that from humble beginnings some three decades ago, Pinelli's has now grown to become a second-generation family winery producing around 150,000 litres of wine each year.
