The eastern boundary of our property is formed by the Bungonia Creek as it winds its way through to the Bungonia Gorge, a popular tourist spot for hikers and canyoners, located in the Bungonia State Conservation Area.
We produce high quality wine, vigorous plants and organic produce by following sustainable permaculture, biodynamic and holistic management practices. This includes the implementation of aquaponics systems as a means of producing nutritious food using about 1% of the water for equivalent production in soil. We have recently implemented a Hugel Kulture bed and a wicking bed, both of which aim to use less water than conventional methods. We welcome visitors who wish to learn more about these techniques.
We released our 2014/15 wines in August 2015 -, a Rose 2015 and a Shiraz 2014. The Rose was deliciously fresh with hints of strawberry and enjoyed by so many that it has sold out. Our Sauvignon Blanc was equally sort after and has also sold out. We will have our next seasons Rose and Sauvignon Blanc available in July 2016. The Shiraz has developed beautifully with hints of fragrant spice, black pepper and dark berry fruits with soft tannins. Our cool climate Shiraz can be tasted along with our traditional favorites, the 2013 Merlot, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (young and cheeky) and the 2010 Cabernet Sauvigon (aged and complex). Try them out at one of our market days or visit the cellar door on Sundays (or by appointment at other times).
