Join us on our "Trust Clara" experience. Not sure where to visit, then trust Clara to take you to some of her favourite spots in the region. Highlights will be some of the region’s best Chardonnays, one of the country’s best cellar doors, a sparkling wine to tantalise the taste buds all culminating in a dining experience like no other with chef Evan Hayter paired with matching wines!
First off join us at the cosy Pierro cellar door. For over a quarter of a century Pierro have striven to fuse the elements of warm southern climes, ancient soils, healthful vines and years of skilled hands-on viticulture and winemaking to produce superior wines of singular extraction, character and elegance.
From here we travel to Amelia Park wines where they believe fine wines come from a rich blend of time-honoured method and modern technique. Each wine is hand-crafted and captures the essence of the fruit. They focus on the essential, and keep only the exceptional. This cellar door is not to be missed.
Our third winery is Stormflower Vineyard. This vineyard achieved full organic certification by NASAA in 2016 and all of Stormflower’s wines from the 2016 vintage onwards are certified organic. Stormflower is all about producing the best wine they can from their small block, with all fruit from the vineyard. Here you will enjoy a taste of delicious imported cheese with your wine tasting.
Feeling hungry? Well Chef Evan Hayter will not disappoint and neither will Arimia Winery. The sun-soaked restaurant takes full advantage of Arimia's unique, picturesque location. Perfectly positioned to take in the lush vista of tall trees, guests are free to enjoy the space. You’ll enjoy a four course tasting menu of modern fare sourcing as much local produce possible including the seasonal ingredients grown in their own garden. Enjoy the expertly paired wines with each dish. And don’t forget to say hi to the pigs!
And after a full day of tasting and eating we will roll you on home to your accommodation to continue the day or just enjoy a long nap!
Enjoy the tastes of the South as we journey South of Margaret River to taste some fantastic wines and explore the vineyards by foot!
We start with a visit to Arlewood situated in the cooler sub-region of Forest Grove - 10km south of the Margaret River township. Producing wines since 1984 you will enjoy their fragrant, elegant & complex wines at their peaceful property and cellar door.
Following this is a special visit to Glenarty Road, a boutique farm and vineyard based in Karridale. Their focus is on making world-class wine, growing fresh seasonal produce & raising grass-fed lamb.
You will have the opportunity of a true farm experience on their progressive tasting on foot through the vines, macadamias and hop garden where they will share with you how they care for and farm their land.
On your guided journey through the farm, you will stop at their two topographically opposing tasting platforms to learn about their Ground to Glass Philosophy.
All of the delicious grapes are grown right in their backyard and for the ultimate experience, from late January to April you can taste the grapes at their best and learn how they translate into the glass.
From here we will return you to your accommodation with all your new-found knowledge and hopefully a bottle or two!
