James' Review

When Hilde and Ian (Duke) Ranson sold their clothing manufacturing business in 1998, they were able to fulfil a long-held dream of establishing a vineyard in the Porongurup subregion of Great Southern with the acquisition of a 65ha farm at the foot of the Porongurup Range. They planted shiraz and cabernet sauvignon (3ha each) and riesling (4ha). Hilde, a successful artist, designed the beautiful, scalloped, glass-walled cellar door sales area, with its mountain blue cladding. Great wines at great prices.

About this winery

Duke's Vineyard was established in 1999. The first vine was planted on Duke's 60th birthday. When other people think of retirement, Duke and Hilde Ranson started their wine-making careers.


The vineyard is situated at the foot of the heritage-listed Porongurup Range and also overlooks the Stirling Range to the north. It is a cool climate region producing soft reds and is becoming recognised as a premium region for Riesling.


The cellar door opened in 2002 to serve our first ever vintage Riesling 2001. We sell 90% of all our wines mail order and a small number to independent liquor outlets and some restaurants. We post cartons of our wines freight free anywhere in Australia. We are open 7 days a week from 10.00am to 4.30pm.
