At Glenarty Road, they like to do things a little different. They believe that great wine is a reflection of the vineyard and for them this is where it all starts. Their 26 acres of vines are planted on fifth generation McDonald family farm, evolving over the years to become the collaborative space it is today. Their vineyard has its roots in Karridale, the southern most grape growing region in Margaret River. Being the cooler sister to the rest of the cape allows them a few impassable benefits. Extreme heat events in the growing season are moderated, preserving the delicate phenolics in their whites and enhancing the spice and savoury characters in their reds.
Speak to Glenarty Road about the new Glenarty Walking Farm Tours – a progressive tasting on foot through the vines, macadamias and hop garden where they share with you how they farm their land, with two topographically opposing tasting platforms positioned throughout the farm.
Owners Sasha and Ben Foley have installed portable bars among their vineyards to allow visitors to take a seat and taste wine while exploring the property.
