James' Review

It is hard to imagine a founding husband-and-wife team with such an ideal blend of viticultural and winemaking experience accumulated over a combined 40+ years. Cathy Howard (n?e Spratt) was a winemaker for 16 years at Orlando and St Hallett in the Barossa Valley, and at Watershed Wines in Margaret River. She now has her own winemaking consulting business covering the southwest regions of WA, as well as making the Whicher Ridge wines. Neil Howard?s career as a viticulturist spans more than 25 years, beginning in the Pyrenees region with Taltarni Vineyards and Blue Pyrenees Estate, before moving to Mount Avoca as vineyard manager for 12 years. When he moved to the west, he managed the Sandalford vineyard in Margaret River for several years, then developed and managed a number of smaller vineyards throughout the region. Whicher Ridge?s Odyssey Creek Vineyard at Chapman Hill has sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon and viognier. The Howards have chosen the Frankland River subregion of the Great Southern to supply shiraz and riesling, and also buy grapes from Margaret River.
