We have some of the oldest vines in the Geographe region, planted in 1978.
If you take a quick two minute drive south of Donnybrook (1.5 km) you will find Coughlan Estate (formerly Barton Jones Wines) a unique winery with a beautiful straw bale cellar door, old established wines and a reputation for hosting relaxing and engaging events.
The maturity of the vines is one aspect which plays an important role in the production of exceptional quality fruit that is a prerequisite for the production of premium wines. Our plantings include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Semillon and Chenin Blanc which are all well suited to our region’s climate.
The Vineyard is dry grown meaning no additional irrigation is used. Our approach to vineyard management is hands on using traditional viticulture practices; we handpick the grapes at vintage and hand prune the vines in winter.
Our wine is available through our cellar door and selected outlets in Perth and the southwest.
