Two new wineries waiting to be discovered...
Last week my friend Sabine from Taste the South Wine Tours and I went out and about to explore two new wineries that recently opened in the Margaret River Region. There is simply no better way to spend your day off than sipping on some fabulous wine.
Our first stop was the hidden gem JARVIS ESTATE. Tucked away a few kilometres after Colonial Brewery on Osmington Road, this estate opened its cellar door late December 2016. The owners Matt and Jackie have been making wine since 1997 and live on the estate. We met the owner Matt who took us behind the scene to see the latest harvest. The cellar door is very rustic and they have a big grassed are just outside perfect for bringing your own picnic while sipping and testing all their wines. Ask Matt to give you taste of the Cab Franc, you won't be disappointed. For more information visit www.jarvisestate.com.au
The second winery we visited was PASSELL ESTATE. Located off Ellensbrook Road just behind Edwards Wines. This small winery also opened its doors in late December 2016. Their newly built cellar door is super modern and inviting, and showcases beautiful handmade furnishings. Bring your own cheese and crackers and enjoy a glass of their fabulous Chardonnay on the porch that overlooks the vines. The best part about this winery is their conservation of ring tale possums. Following the bush fires in 2011 the owner of Passel Estate provided a sanctuary to a family of ring tale possums, who still live and breed on the property.
