Description

In 1975, local couple Merilyn and Graham Hutton (a teacher and dairy farmer) decided to diversify their cattle farm, planting a 4.5 hectare vineyard on their property. Ingenuity was paramount in those early days as they became self-tutored vignerons and winemakers, building their winery ‘on the cheap’ by hand, from local resources. In 1978, they named their venture Gralyn, a combination of both their Christian names.

New generations of the family are at the helm of winemaking and viticulture these days, growing highly sought-after wines from their non-irrigated, mature vineyard, located 3km from the coast.

The Wines
Organically made, the wine range focuses on full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay with strength and finesse. Gralyn Estate also made the region’s first range of fortifieds, which it has continued since 1978. The current selection includes flavours such as coffee, ruby chocolate and white chocolate. Traditionalists will love the Rare Tawny, Muscats and Vintage Ports which have been judged as some of Australia’s finest.

Wine Tasting
Complimentary tastings of the wine range are available daily from a state of the art cellar door, which is surrounded with stunning vineyard views. Sold only through the cellar door or online, this is a truly unique opportunity to discover a secret treasure of Margaret River wine. Open daily, 10.30am-4.30pm.

Description

Located just 5 minutes from Bridgetown, Sunnyhurst Winery Estate is on the grounds of the historic 1896 Sunnyhurst Homestead which was known to be headquarters for the Red Cross during WWII. Since its establishment as a vineyard and winery in 2000, Sunnyhurst has used traditional winemaking methods and organic inspired viticulture. Currently owned by Geoff Herbert and Marie-Pierre Dussault, the Sunnyhurst philosophy emphasises hand-picked quality grapes, and the production of premium quality wines that reflect the taste of the region.

The white wines have great delicacy and flavour from a long cool fermentation, and reds are left to age in French oak that are recycled from Burgundy. All aspects of wine production are undertaken onsite, including bottling, corking, capsuling and labelling.

The Wines

Sunnyhurst varieties include Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Shiraz, Petit Verdot and a Ruby Port.

Cellar Door

The beautiful cellar door and art gallery at Sunnyhurst is open 7 days a week from 11am to 6pm. Owner Marie-Pierre Dussault provides complimentary tastings of the winery's award-winning wines. The cellar door area is very family friendly, featuring a kids' corner with wooden toys and colouring-in activities.

Unique Highlights

Customers are invited to wander through the beautiful gardens, admire the views of the Mattamatup and Blackwood River valleys and get a glimpse of the vineyard.

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.

Description

The History
Windy Creek Estate, formally Cobanov Wines, was first established in 1937 by Ante Cobanov. 
He had left Croatia in 1924 and spent 13 years cutting sleepers in the south-west to enable him to put a deposit on this Swan Valley property that he purchased in 1937. They grew grapes for dried fruit production but made a small amount of wine for the Perth immigrant community.  
The family has continued to produce wines for more than 80 years and we have been selling fruit to other wineries for approximately 40 years. The Windy Creek Estate label was first released in 1980. 
Tony Cobanov, the current winemaker, entered the industry as a third generation winemaker and is very passionate about the Swan Valley and its lifestyle. He has 3 sons Joshua, Callum and Rohan so it is a distinct possibility that this will become a 4th generation business.
 
The Wines
The winery employs modern and traditional wine making techniques producing white styles that are crisp and friendly showing big tropical fruit and finishing with a nice mouth feel. 
The reds are full bodied and have an earthy, savoury aroma with full fruit and well-balanced tannin.
Their fortified wines are old, rich and luscious with good oak.
 
The Cellar Door
Windy Creek has recently upgraded its Cellar Door and now has ample lawn areas that are perfect for a lazy afternoon with friends and family with the Darling Range and vineyard as a backdrop.
 
Opening times
Open 11am to 5pm - Tuesday - Sunday and most Monday public holidays
