In 2005 Warwick and Cherylyn Mathews acquired the long-established Hopelands Vineyard, planted to cabernet sauvignon (2.6ha), shiraz (1.6ha), merlot, semillon, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay (1.1ha each). The first wine was made in '06, after which they decided to completely rework the vineyard, which required many hours of physical labour. The vines were retrained, with a consequent reduction in yield and rise in wine quality and value. Exports to China.
After Hours Wine is a family owned and business located in the pristine Margaret River Wine Region. We believe in a “hands on” approach from the vineyard to the bottle.
The boutique size of the After Hours winery limits the number of wine shows we are eligible to enter. We are however extremely proud of the accomplishment and standard we have achieved and strive for.
All of the After Hours wines are produced, processed and bottled onsite. This allows us to carefully select only the best parcels of fruit to produce premium award winning wines.
