Cellar Door is OPEN

Vineyard 28 cellar door reopens Saturday 6th February.

As we advised the Western Australian Bush Fires (Waroona Harvey Fire) that commenced on 7th January 2016, came close to Vineyard 28, scarily close. Almost a month later and we are ready to re-open the cellar door.

Saturday 6th February 2016 our cellar door will be open from 10am.

Electricity has been restored, all the cleaning is done and we are ready to welcome you back to visiting us here at the cellar door. The surrounding bush is already showing signs of recovery and it is truly amazing to see the new green shoots appearing.

We’ve commenced vintage with the first harvest of the muscat grapes. Lots of testing will been done on all the grapes re possible smoke issues, and will continue throughout vintage. There is no “one” simple test for this matter, it is subject to many factors, e.g. what stage the grapes were at, their variety, how long they were under smoke and many more factors.

Please be assured we will only be making wine from those grapes that we are 100% confident about. Our fruit at the Wildwater Vineyard in Harvey was not exposed at all to smoke, and nor was the additional Sauvignon Blanc for our Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend.

We are very appreciative of the support shown to us and especially, YOU – our lovely customers who have helped by ordering our wine online.

We look forward to having you visit at the cellar door and welcoming you back to our special part of the world. 

Can’t wait remember we have online wine orders.

The Geographe Wine Region – Taste of the Region

Taste of the Region

On Friday the 7th November, the Geographe celebrated recent success from the 2014 ANZ Geographe Wine Show, with a Taste of the Region, held at the Sky Bar at the newly renovated Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre. It was an opportunity for Trophy and Award winning wines from the show to be placed centre stage, and matched with local gourmet produce.

Vineyard 28’s “The Alternative” 2014 Arneis

Vineyard 28’s “The Alternative”2014 Arneis was featured as part of this event, served alongside Donnybrook Marron- (Poached Marron, Pemberton Avocado & Lime Mousse, Passionfruit Dressing) and Avocado Watermelon- (Watermelon Cube, Pemberton Avocado & Lime Mousse, Pistachio Crumbed Harvey Persian Goats Cheese).

Our 2014 Arneis received the Doral Mineral Sands Award for Best WA Alternative White Variety at the 2014 ANZ Geographe Wine Show. Mark our winemaker was very pleased to have it selected for the Taste of the Region.

The Geographe Wine Region

The Geographe Wine Region is located just 2 hours south of Perth, and is fast earning a reputation as one of Western Australia’s most exciting new wine regions. Spanning from Harvey in the North to Busselton in the South and out to Donnybrook in the East, the region hugs the Geographe Bay with the cooling afternoon sea breezes being a hallmark of a long stable growing season. Whilst Geographe is one of Australia’s most geographically diverse regions, a common theme resonates across the region of smaller vineyards and wineries owned and operated by the families you meet at the cellar doors, Wine Shows and Exhibitions. The people behind the wine labels of Geographe are passionate and proud of their Region and what it produces and also where Geographe wines are placed in the Australian and world wine scene.

Vineyard 28 is one of Geographe’s small family owned and operated vineyards. When you visit us at the cellar door, most of the time you will meet us the owners, Mark & Pippa, the people behind the wine. We grow the varieties of wine grapes we are passionate about and enjoy making wine from for you. A love of all things Italian has blossomed into a particular interest in alternative wine varieties for Mark our winemaker and alongside our more traditional range.

Vineyard 28 has something for everyone, the cellar door is brimming with colour and vibrancy, warmth and passion, creativity and wine, quilts and art all combine here.

Vineyard 28 is pleased to announce that its talented resident artist, Yvonne Chapman,  has been selected as a finalist in the 2014 Australasian Quilt Challenge (AQC).

The annual AQC Challenge is a themed competition open to all. Quilts must be 125cm square and show interpretation of the theme – in 2014 the theme is ‘TEN’. This year the entries were received from every state in Australia as well as New Zealand and Canada.

The finalists work will be on display at the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne in April this year.
