About Us

 

Shepherds Hut Wines was established in 1996. The vineyard is situated in the eastern foothills of the Porongurup Ranges in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.

The vineyard is named after an historic 1850s stone hut which was found in ruins on an adjacent property. Built of beautiful honey-coloured Mt Barker stone, the hut was one of four in the district which were used by local shepherds as shelter while grazing their flocks along the Kalgan River.  The hut has since been rebuilt and now overlooks the vineyard, with spectacular sweeping views to both the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges.

It is here in a region that is fast becoming renowned for its fine quality cool climate table wines, that fastidious and thorough management practices are being combined with a unique environment to produce wine grapes of the highest quality.

Our philosophy at Shepherds Hut is to produce high quality fruit for premium table wines. The emphasis is on quality before quantity and this is achieved through a no compromise approach to our viticultural management. The end yield per hectare is limited to levels that allow each variety to best develop its characteristic flavours.

Shepherds Hut is a family business. We created the vineyard from the ground up on north facing slopes of our working sheep and cattle farm. We are involved in the management of the vineyard, along with the marketing, distribution, and of course enjoyment of our wines.

It has always been a passion of ours to run our own vineyard and produce wines made from grapes sourced from the one vineyard both for ourselves and others to enjoy.
