Food and Drink Wilyabrup, Busselton, Western Australia
A winemaker who has paved its own way since 1979, making an internationally acclaimed suite of Margaret River classics that can be tasted from its warm and humble cellar door in Wilyabrup.
Located in Wilyabrup on what is widely respected as some of the finest wine grape growing terrain in the world, Pierro was planted in 1980 by a winemaker who went against the norm, Dr Mike Peterkin.
Pierros first wines were made the previous year, including the regions first known Bordeaux-inspired Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blends and a Cabernet Merlot blend with Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
Made from two estate-owned vineyards in Wilyabrup, the reds are ranked among the best of the region and the stylish white wines are highly-regarded around the world. The primary Pierro vineyard produces superb-quality fruit with an emphasis on soil, aspect and a high number of vines per hectare to achieve well balanced fruit.
The winemaking approach is very hands-on, from handpicking through to bunch sorting to berry-level. Wines are made in small batches to ensure each particular vineyard area receives the attention it deserves.
The modest cellar door with its warm wooden interiors offers tastings daily.
