Bella Ridge Estate

A niche, family-owned winery handmaking original and interesting wines from their 1960s vines in the Swan Valley to great acclaim, following a chance encounter with James Halliday. No cellar door.

  • Open Days/times:No Cellar Door
  • Wine Region:Swan District
  • Wine Variety:Cabernet Shiraz,Chenin Blanc,Grenache,Rose,Semillon,Shiraz,Tempranillo,Viognier,Mourvedre

  • Winemaker:Alon Arbel
  • Facilities:No Cellar Door
  • Size & Year:Boutique (1,000-4,999 cases),Established 2001 - 2010

Description

Alon and Jodi Arbel purchased the property in 2003, building their winemaking facility in just three short months. Following a chance encounter, when James Halliday tasted their unnamed and unlabelled Shiraz, Bella Ridge Estate was born. (The winery needed a name to be printed for a national review in Halliday’s column in The Weekend Australian!)

The vines, planted in the 1960s, are almost entirely non-irrigated and crop levels are kept very low. Coupled with the vineyard's aspect on the foot hills of the Darling Range and the excellent gravelly loam soil, the result is grapes of excellent quality with highly concentrated fruit flavours.

The Wines

Focusing on warm climate varieties that are well suited to the region, the mostly hand-picked range includes Italian, Spanish and classic French styles made with a ‘non-commercial’ approach, where characterful wines are encouraged. Winemaking and bottling are completed within the estate. All wines can be purchased online.

Description

Black Swan Winery and Restaurant sits on a property formerly known as “Gidney’s Corner”.

Husband and wife team, Barry Scrivener and Robyn Meloury purchased Black Swan in 1998 and converted the property to a “restaurant within a winery”. The venue is purposely built for guests to capture fantastic views of vineyards, the Darling Ranges and adjacent rural surroundings. The design and building materials reflect a style and blend of rustic Australian ambience.

The vines were mostly planted in 1941, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Merlot, Chenin & Chardonnay and later, Shiraz. The first vintage in 2001 reaped gold medals for the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc at the 2002 Swan Valley Wine Show.

The panoramic views of the Darling Ranges are matched only by the fresh, seasonal produce on the menu, offering freshly-baked bread served with truffle oil to a drool-worthy red wine-braised beef cheek and seasonal delights. Chef’s gardens are established throughout of the property, providing much of the kitchen’s needs for organic herbs.

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.

Their wines include award-winning premium boutique red and white wines as well as rich, traditional fortified styles for which the Swan Valley is well renowned, some of which are only available at the cellar door. Their speciality is bottle-fermented “methode traditionelle” sparkling styles made from chardonnay and, more unusually, semillon, chenin blanc, shiraz and merlot. The fruit is sourced from estate vineyards in Gingin and the Swan Valley and grown with low chemical inputs and no pesticides.

The cellar door is low key, charming and spacious with a lovely outside area for warmer days and open 11am to 5:30pm 7 days a week.

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.

Harris Organic Wines is an extremely friendly place. Make your way past the cats and free-range chickens to the cellar door of this small boutique winery and you can enjoy a seated tasting of organic wines with winemaker and owner Duncan Harris (a $ 10.00 tasting fee applies, redeemable against any wine purchase).

Sustainability is central to Harris Organic’s philosophy. The wines are made with natural yeasts and the bare minimum of additives and preservatives. The grapes are irrigated only by what they receive from the sky and Duncan never uses any pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers.

Minimal artificial energy sources are required. An underground cellar was built to obtain naturally cooler storage temperatures. The wines mature in oak barriques and hogsheads, ultimately sealed in recyclable glass bottles and natural cork, if available.

You can learn how organic wine is made with a guided walking tour through the vineyard, underground cellar and winery, finishing with a taste of some of the very best of  Duncan's certified organic dry white, red and fortified wines. Duncan is also licensed to distil spirits and sells his organic vodka and brandy at the cellar door and online. While you’re here, stock up on organic coffee and organic olive oil.

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.

Description

Sandalford has been making superb West Australian wines for over 175 years. The primary property is the grand Swan Valley estate and offers an array of tours, courses and food & wine experiences. There is also the cellar in Margaret River, surrounded by beautiful, country gardens, vines and native forest.

A Notable History
Sandalford was established in 1840 in the early days of the Perth colony’s settlement. The property was granted to WA’s first Surveyor General John Septimus Roe by Queen Victoria, to honour his 57 years of Service to the Commonwealth. He named it Sandalford after a priory in his original home of Birkshire, England.

The property had a diverse agricultural history and originally thrived growing table grapes, which became a lucrative export. Winemaking accelerated after World War II with a growing community of Croatian and Italian migrants bringing their extensive knowledge and wine-making techniques to the young Swan Valley wine industry. In 1970 the Roe family expanded to Margaret River, planting a vineyard on prime land in Wilyabrup.

In 1990, Sandalford was acquired by the Prendiville family, who own a portfolio of iconic tourism and hospitality establishments around WA. The Prendiville’s have invested significantly in the brand, the wines and the impressive estate.

The Wines
Sandalford makes five ranges of wines from its vineyards in the Swan Valley and Margaret River. There are over 25 wines, including sparkling, red, white, dessert and fortified wines. The winery incorporates the state-of-the-art-technology, while retaining winemaking traditions, such as small batch fruit processing and using the best quality French and American oak.

Wine Tasting
The entire Sandalford wine range (and often other special wines) can be tasted at their Swan Valley and Margaret River estates. The grand Swan Valley cellar door is one of the largest in Western Australia and is open daily from 10am to 5pm.

Description

Nestled among the vines on a gently winding road near the upper reaches of the Swan River lies one of the jewels of the historic Swan Valley.

Founded by Simon and Maaike Berns in 1998 and named after a small Australian bird which abounds in the nearby tree-lined Swan River, Sittella Winery is one of the newest wineries in the Swan Valley.

Sittella’s Swan Valley vineyard thrives on the fertile soils and Mediterranean climate of hot dry summers and mild wet winters, producing a range of rich, full flavoured wines. Simon and Maaike Berns have been successful in producing high quality traditional wine styles using Verdelho, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Tempanillo and Petit Verdot, and now source grapes from other vineyards in the Swan Valley, their own Margaret River property and and Franklyn River in the Great Southern.  Over the past five years, production has increased dramatically with a crush of over 100 tonnes.

Maaike is responsible for the imaginative architecture of the restaurant, incorporating the essence of modern Italy into this wonderful earth-rendered winery.

The winery and Restaurant is open from 11:00am to 4:00pm Tuesdays – Sundays and public holidays.

SWAN VALLEY

The Sittella Vineyard is located on a stretch of fertile land 20 km north-east of Perth. In this upper river district, with the Darling Ranges to the east and the Indian Ocean to the west, the warm Mediterranean style climate provides steady winter rainfall and hot, dry summers which produce grapes of wonderful flavour, richness, balance and style. The water supply is a trickle system using bore water. Verdelho, Chardonnay, Shiraz, vines grow over a 5 hectare allotment on rich alluvial sandy loam soils (3 hectares under vine). Recent plantings also include Tempranillo, and Petit Verdot.

MARGARET RIVER ESTATE

Located at Willyabrup, 260 kms south west of Perth. The region’s temperate southern climate has been likened to Bordeaux with its generous winter rainfall, freedom from spring frosts and subdued summer temperatures – the ideal growing conditions for international wine styles. With 2.5 hectares of undulating land and soils are amongst the best in the area. Comprised of red brown loam with some gravel that ensures good natural drainage. Varieties include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc and more recently Malbec to develop a classic red Blend.

Their mission to preserve the historical character of the estate and local vineyards and to support local growers who practice organic viticulture, to protect, preserve, respect and resist trends, whilst still producing incredible tasting wines and bringing together the local community.

Passionate about maintaining biocultural diversity of the valley, all wines produced are fermented with indigenous yeasts and do not contain enzymes or other chemical additions. Paul’s interest in the integration of agricultural and natural systems is reflected in their wines.

Description

Croatian-born Jim Talijancich and his wife Ljucibica purchased this Swan Valley property in 1932 and began making fortified wine from Muscat and Shiraz. Times were tough in those early years and were made tougher upon Jim’s passing, when son Peter was just 13 years old. Peter ceased schooling immediately to work with his mother on the vineyard, the horse and plough becoming one of his new regular tasks. Peter led all operations and winemaking for over 50 years until he passed Talijancich onto son his James and wife Hilda in 1998.

The Wines
Talijancich has a long-term reputation as a fortified wine specialist. Their range includes a 30 Year Old Rare Tawny, Muscat and Pedro Ximenes Liqueur. There is also a selection of still red and white wines including a beautiful Verdelho and an old-vine Shiraz. The vineyard follows bio-dynamic, organic principles.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door is located in their converted winery homestead, offering a relaxed setting with lovely views. It is open from 10.30am to 4.30pm all days, except Tuesday.
