Sustainable farming minimizing impact on the environment is central to operations both in the vineyards and the winery. Solar power is used for heating and cooling in the winery. The employment of minimal intervention practises and bio-diverse vineyard management eliminate the need for fertilisers and pesticides. Must waste and all other output from the winery are reused for irrigation and feed for livestock.  No chemicals are used in the vineyards and therefore none are present in the winery output.

Positioned just over halfway between Albany and Mt Barker, on the Albany side.

The Wines
The two red wines produced at the estate are natural wines, made with minimal intervention, fermented in French oak using wild yeasts, and unfined and unfiltered.  The low-yielding shiraz and cabernet are planted to dry-grown vineyards (ie no irrigation) on north facing slopes.  The fruit is farmed with bio-dynamic methods, and the vineyards remain free of synthetic fertiliser, fungicides and residual herbicides.  Due to the resultant biodiversity, the earth enjoys healthy, nutrient rich soil and plenty of organic matter.

Wine Tasting
No cellar door.

Unique Highlights
Bunn is one of the rising stars in the natural, bio-dynamic and minimal-intervention wine movement, which has found a niche following in Australia of the past 5 or more years.  The Great Southern is home to a handful of great producers with similar philosophies, so if this is an area of interest, the Bunn wines must be sought out.

The original duties included selecting and presenting the first cup of wine to the King and the butler crest was depicted on golden cups in the Second Quarter.
