The business that was established in 2001 by a small syndicate of investors, including Marilyn Corderory, Malcolm McCusker, and Terry and Kevin Prindiville, was acquired by Palinda Wines in late 2012; at the same time Palinda acquired Woodside Valley Estate. Palinda Wines is based in Hong Kong, and is the private family company of Chinese businessman Jacky Wong. He has 150 stores in Hong Kong and mainland China selling beer, wine and spirits, and will thus act both as importer and retailer. Exports to Canada, Poland, Russia, China and Japan.
Nestled in the Lower Chittering Valley, the gently rolling hills form a tranquil backdrop to the myriad of orchards, farms and vineyards that dot the hillsides. Situated up to 300 metres above sea level, the climate and soils of the Chittering Valley are quite different to those of nearby viticulture regions. The climate is typically Mediterranean with cold, wet winters and warm, dry summers.
Our first production in 2001, produced medal-winning wines. From there our Branded Wines have flourished winning very many trophies, and medals over the past 10 years. We are within the Perth Hills appellation and currently have approximately 125 acres under vine, most of which are aged between 20-70 years old.
