In 1986 geologist Phil Snowden and wife Viv moved from South Africa to Perth, where they developed their successful multinational mining and resource services company, Snowden Resources. Following the sale of the company in 2004, they turned their attention to their long-held desire to make and enjoy fine wine. In '07 they bought an established vineyard (planted in '89) in the beautiful Denmark subregion. They pulled out the old shiraz and merlot vines, kept and planted more chardonnay and retained Larry Cherubino to set up partnerships with established vineyards in Frankland River, Porongurup, Denmark, Pemberton and Margaret River. The cellar door, tasting room and restaurant are strongly recommended. The consistency of the quality of the Singlefile wines is outstanding, as is their value for money. Exports to the US, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and China.
Based near Denmark, Singlefile Wines, a family owned winery, was co-founded by Phil & Viv Snowden and Patrick & Pam Corbett. Singlefile aims to showcase the best of the five diverse sub-regions of the Great Southern in Western Australia.
Singlefile Wines was the inaugural winner of James Halliday’s Dark Horse Winery of the Year and their flagship ‘The Vivienne’ Chardonnay was recognized as Australia’s Top Chardonnay in James Halliday’s 2019 Australian Wine Companion. In the past three years 31 of Singlefile’s wines have scored 95 points or above, and 32 wines have been highlighted for their value for money. Singlefile Wines was also selected as a Top 100 winery in the world in the 2015 Wine & Spirits magazine (USA) and has been acknowledged as one of the Great Southern’s top cellar doors by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine. In 2018, for the third time since 2015, Singlefile has been awarded ‘Best Tasting Experience’, and was awarded the ‘Star’ Cellar Door in 2013, 2014 and 2016.
