See, smell, taste and experience, a wine tasting experience like no other in Australia!
Whicher Ridge is a small family-owned winery and vineyard operated by a dynamic team of two, Neil and Cathy Howard. They are a vigneron and winemaker couple with a combined 50 years of experience between them. Neil and Cathy take a ‘hands-on’ approach to the growing of their grapes and the making of their wines and they have a ‘tread lightly on the earth’ philosophy with their sustainable farming practices.
The Wine Sensory Garden is a truly unique wine experience being the only one of its kind in Australia. The Garden is designed in figure eight, infinity shape with sections themed for seven different wine varieties. For each wine, there is a ‘Descriptor Bed’ planted with fruit trees, flowers and herbs which describe the aromas and flavours in that wine. The adjacent ‘Affinity Bed’ has plantings of fruit trees, seasonal vegetables and herbs which have an affinity for, or pair with, that particular wine.
Visitors are welcome to wander around the Garden and immerse themselves in the sights, smells and flavours of the plants at their own pace or they can book in for a ‘Pick and Sip’ Tour or a tasting in Cellar Door. All tastings and garden tours are with Cathy, the winemaker.
