Below and Above Wines are grown in the Thella Estate vineyard in Pemberton's southern forests.  The property has been a lucrative supplier of grapes to established WA vineyards since the 1990s.

Thella Estate was identified early by Western Australian viticulture pioneers as one of the best patches of dirt in the state for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir due to a complex and specific interaction of environmental conditions including: relatively cool climate; deep red, loamy, gravel soil; high rainfall and altitude (250 metres above sea level).

The Below and Above label began in 2013 as a small-batch wine made by renowned WA contract winemaker Bruce Dukes. Proprietors John and Evdokia Klepec have focussed their efforts on growing world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, working closely with Bruce Dukes to enhance their viticulture to produce superb fruit and exceptional wine.
