Duke’s Vineyard is an award-winning, ten-hectare vineyard in the cool-climate Great Southern wine region of WA producing dry Rieslings, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The vineyard is a unique site that sits at the feet of the ancient granite Porongurup peaks.
Duke and Hilde Ranson established the vineyard as their “retirement” project, planting the first vine on Duke’s 60th birthday in 1999. In 2019, they received 99 points and the Halliday Wine of the Year Award for the 2017 Riesling, a first for an Australian Riesling.
When Duke retired for real, he searched for the right person to take over his legacy, a path that led him to Ben Cane. He and Ben share the same passion to make beautiful wines from an exceptional terroir and like to have a lot of fun in the process of making, enjoying, and selling wine.
Winemaker Ben Cane and film/media/special events producer Sarah Date took over the brand in April 2022. Excited about the potential of the Great Southern region, Duke’s Vineyard is where Ben and Sarah’s next winemaking chapter begins.
They are guiding the existing premium wines to exciting new heights and will add other examples of Riesling and Shiraz from the Great Southern to the portfolio as well as Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir by way of invitational vineyards.
