Blue Poles Vineyard


Two geologists scoured over 1000kms before planting their dream vineyard east of Margaret River, with a range including Cabernet Franc, Viognier, Shiraz and Italian varieties Fiano and Teroldego.

This winery takes its name from an iconic Australian painting, Blue Poles: Number 11, 1952) by artist Jackson Pollock, who was known for paintings of grace, depth, wonder and awe. The Blue Poles painting was a watershed acquisition by the National Australian Gallery in the 1970s, representing a move toward from colonial ties to free thought and independence in Australia. Blue Poles vineyard aims to emulate these traits in its vineyard and wines.

The vineyard is a joint venture between two geologists, Mark Gifford and Tim Markwell, who committed to their business plan from a minesite donga in 2001. They inspected thousands of kilometres of land before settling on the property 15 kilometres east of the Margaret River township for its large pockets of iron-rich gravels over clay, slopes to the south-west and cool climate for the long ripening of fruit.

A total of 7 hectares have been planted at Blue Poles vineyard, with 6.3 hectares dedicated to Merlot, Shiraz Cabernet Franc and Viognier.
