Barwick Estate - Western Australia
 
Sensation......

Barwick Wines brings to you quality wines from three premium wine regions in the South West of Western Australia: Margaret River, Pemberton, and the Blackwood Valley. The cool Mediterranean climate combined with duplex soils of Margaret River, karri loams of Pemberton and well drained gravels of the Blackwood provides ideal growing conditions for the selected varieties.

Producing from 200 hectares of their own vineyard estates, the winery in Margaret River produces a range of premium bottled red and white wines. The wines include cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, shiraz/cabernet and cabernet/merlot blends, pinot noir, chardonay, semillon, sauvignon blanc and viognier.

In full production Barwick Wines will produce over 134,000 cases for distribution into domestic and overseas markets. Since Vintage 1997, as well as their own premium label, Barwick Wines has supplied premium grapes, juice and bulk wine to other major Australian wineries including Tahbilk, Goundreys, Howard Park, Rosemount, Evans & Tate and Palandri.
