Our Wine Experiences and Tour Options
No need to pack your bags or passport for a food and wine adventure.
A visit to the cellar door at Vineyard 28 is a little “Trip to Italy” via wine, where you will most likely be greeted by the owner Pippa, or winemaker, Mark. This Kiwi girl and the WA boy have a passionate interest in Italian grape varieties and love to share their story with guests.
Indulge all your senses with an extensive range of wines, that cater to all tastes; a sparkling Pignoletto, crisp dry whites, rich robust reds, and some sweeter styles.
We offer fine wine experiences accompanied by locally sourced produce, all served with good old-fashioned hospitality, hosted in our purpose-built limestone cellar door. You are also welcome to enjoy the peace of the forest surrounds and panoramic views over farmland to the Eastern Scarp, with our outdoor seating.
Bookings in advance are appreciated so that we can provide the best experience for you.
Larger groups of 6 or more persons are asked to phone the Cellar Door on 08 9733 5605 to make enquiries about bookings.
