The vineyard follows organic practices and grows a diverse mix of grapes, from Margaret River’s classics of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon through to Mourvedre, Zinfandel and Verdehlo.

Wine Tasting

One of the most authentic food and wine experiences to be found in Margaret River,

the acclaimed wine range can be sampled at the relaxed cellar door, built primarily using recycled and plantation timber.

The Food

Awarded ‘Gourmet Traveller Regional Restaurant of the Year’ 2018, Arimia’s menu comes mostly from farm-grown produce including pork and trout raised on the 55ha property.

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.

A treasure of the Great Southern, Singlefile is the fruit of labour of the Snowden family, who purchased an established vineyard in Scotsdale Valley in 2008 after an extensive search around Australia; determining that Denmark ticked all the boxes for the quality wines and lifestyle they were seeking.

The team decided to focus the existing vineyard entirely on Chardonnay, pulling out Shiraz and Merlot vines and planting Gingin clone Chardonnay. Fruit for the balance of their wines is sourced from specialist vineyard sites throughout the Great Southern Region and its distinct areas including Mount Barker, Albany, Frankland River.

The cool climate wines are handpicked and made as naturally as possible to allow the fruit to be the star of the finished wine. Their Chardonnay was named Chardonnay of the Year by James Halliday (2019 Wine Companion).

The Wines

Four tiers of wines are made, all of which are drawn from specially selected sites within the Great Southern, except for the estate-grown Chardonnay. Riesling, Cabernet blends, Pinot Noir and Fume Blanc are just some of the wine styles being made.

Wine Tasting

Set beside a stunning lake with beautiful manicured lawns, the wood and brick cellar door is tasteful and chic and a three-time recipient of Gourmet Traveller Wine’s ‘Best Cellar Door of the Great Southern’ award. Guests are welcome every day of the week to taste the wines and go on a journey of discovering the different styles of wines from the diverse Great Southern region.
