Sittella Wines

Western Australia | Swan Valley

James' Review

Simon and Maaike Berns acquired a 7ha block (with 5ha of vines) at Herne Hill, making the first wine in 1998 and opening a most attractive cellar door facility. They also own the Wildberry Estate vineyard in Margaret River. Consistent and significant wine show success has brought well deserved recognition for the wines. Exports to the US, Japan and China.
