Voyager Estate

Western Australia | Margaret River

Our Review

The late mining magnate Michael Wright pursued several avenues of business and agriculture before setting his sights on owning a vineyard and winery. It was thus an easy decision when he was able to buy what was then called Freycinet Estate from founder and leading viticulturist Peter Gherardi in 1991. Peter had established the vineyard in '78 and it was significantly expanded by Michael over the ensuing years. Apart from the Cape Dutch-style tasting room and vast rose garden, the signpost for the estate is the massive Australian flagpole - after Parliament House in Canberra, it's the largest flagpole in Australia. Michael's daughter, Alexandra Burt, has been at the helm of Voyager Estate for many years, supported by general manager Chris Furtado and a long-serving and committed staff. Michael is remembered as a larger-than-life character, more at home in his favourite work pants and boots than a suit, and never happier than when trundling around the estate on a four-wheeler or fixing a piece of machinery. Exports to all major markets.

About

Voyager Estate is a second generation family-owned estate in Stevens Valley, Margaret River, Western Australia. Established in 1978, our heritage vines reflect the unique qualities of the Stevens Valley, with its undulating slopes, warm summers and cooling maritime breezes. Our ultimate ambition couldn’t be simpler – to craft wines that do justice to our extraordinary climate and soils through some of the most elegant and balanced Chardonnays and Cabernet Sauvignons in the world. We’re proud to have harvested our first Certified Organic grapes in 2020, with the rest of our vines rolling into Certified Organic over the next 3 years. Through our continued focus on sustainability, craft and innovation, we aim to shine a light on Margaret River – one of the world’s great wine regions – and our special place in it.
