About 40km South East of Bunbury you’ll find the pretty country town of Donnybrook. A town oozing with that warm, country hospitality and plenty to see, do, eat and drink, it’s the ideal day trip destination.
After a work trip to his family’s homeland of Italy in the early 1990s, Fil Barreca aged just 21 discovered his intrinsic connection to working in a vineyard and growing grapes on a highly innovative Sicilian winery. He took his inspiration and passion back to Donnybrook and begun planting vines immediately.
Growing up as a first generation Australian an emphasis on food and wine were simply ‘a part of life’.
Today nearly 25 years on, Barrecas Wines is family owned and operated by principals Fil and Kelly Barreca, a total cultivation so far of about 46 hectares, predominantly Shiraz but also other wine varietals like cult favourite Barbera, the popular and much loved blend Shiraz Malbec, Zinfandel, Sangiovese and many more.
All Barrecas Wines, the sparkling and fortified wines are proudly 100% estate bottled, including the Estate’s premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is produced from the Estates premium olive plantation.
We look forward to seeing you at Barrecas Wines and invite you to become a part of our story and the tradition.
