Dickinson Estate

Western Australia | Blackwood Valley

James' Review

Trevor and Mary Dickinson went from a 20-year life at sea with the Australian Navy to becoming farmers at Boyup Brook in 1987. They learned on the job, initially cropping, and breeding sheep for wool, then cattle and fat lambs. In '94 they diversified further, planting shiraz, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and cabernet sauvignon, and appointing the highly experienced team of Coby Ladwig and Luke Eckersley to make the wines. Exports to the UK and China.

About

Trevor and Mary Dickinson went from a 20-year life at sea with the Australian Navy to becoming farmers at Boyup Brook in the Blackwood Valley Wine Region in the Southwest of Western Australia in 1987. In 1994 they established the Dickinson Estate Vineyard. The property has a long history of cattle and sheep grazing which has provided soils that are rich in organic matter and there are still sheep grazing through the vineyard during the non-fruit bearing months of the year.
