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.

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
Taste and graze from a selection of over 75+ different international and local benchmark cheeses at the family’s Cheese Barrel Café. Just metres from the cellar door, this architecturally-designed gem of a property is a place of wine and cheese-lovers’ dreams. The all-day menu is both flexible and generous, with cheeseboards starting from $35-$40. Free cheese tastings are available too. They are best experienced between 10am and 1pm before it gets too busy. Families, children and even dogs are welcome.

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.

Description

Derek and Laura believe wine is one of life’s essentials. So essential, they came all the way from England to start their winery dream in Western Australia, establishing Upper Reach in 1997. They learnt to grow the grapes and make the wines as they went along and have turned their dream into an award-winning business with a popular cellar door and restaurant. They love sharing the fruits of their labour with visitors from near and far.

The Wines
All the wines are estate-grown. Varieties include Swan Valley classics of verdelho, shiraz, grenache and muscat, along with chardonnay, semillon cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot and more.

Wine Tasting
The friendly Upper Reach cellar door wine tasting experience has been consistently awarded in Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine’s Annual Australian Cellar Door Awards. Wine tastings are offered daily from 10am – 5pm. Group tastings (10+ people) can be booked from $10 per person. Perhaps, stay a little longer with a glass of wine and game of bocce on the lawn.

The Food
Situated in a quiet corner of the Swan Valley, The Riverbrook Restaurant at Upper Reach is a treasure within the region. The modern menu features small tasting plates to large feasting platters along with more formal a la carte options. Open from 9am daily.

Tours
The classic Winery Tour & Tasting ($40) takes guests behind the scenes, with the unique opportunity to ‘walk the catwalk’ for a birds-eye winery view and taste barrel samples like a winemaker. Treat yourself with a Tour and 2-Course Lunch, or early birds will love the Winery Tour & Breakfast.

Unique Highlights
A terrific Wine 101 Appreciation class is held once a month on weekends. It’s a formal tasting experience with an inclusive casual vibe and held in the back of a working winery. The interactive session breaks down the complex wine world, inviting guests to ‘be the winemaker’ and learn about flavours, the influence of oak and other wine characteristics through wine blending and lots of tasting.

For something a little different, stay at Upper Reach’s luxurious 1907 Winery Spa Cottage which features panoramic vineyard views, a spa and more.
