Alkoomi

Western Australia | Frankland River

James' Review

Established in 1971 by Merv and Judy Lange, Alkoomi has grown from a single hectare to one of Western Australia's largest family-owned and operated wineries. Now owned by daughter Sandy Hallett, and her husband Rod, Alkoomi is continuing the tradition of producing high quality wines which showcase the Frankland River region. Alkoomi is actively reducing its environmental footprint; future plans will see the introduction of new varietals. Alkoomi operates cellar doors in Albany and at the winery (which also has a function centre). Exports to all major markets.

About

Alkoomi - the Aboriginal word meaning ‘a place we chose’ - is one of Australia’s most remote wineries, tucked away in the cool climate wine region of Frankland River, 350km south of Perth in the vast Great Southern of Western Australia. One of WA’s largest family owned and operated wine producers, Alkoomi is run by the second and third generation owners Sandy and Rod Hallett, with their daughters Laura, Emily and Molly. Together they passionately follow in the footsteps of Alkoomi founders Merv and Judy Lange (Sandy’s parents), who pioneered the Frankland wine region, establishing a reputation for making varietally expressive wines with exceptional depth of flavour.
