Stunning Vineyard and Cellar DoorThe 22.75 (56ac) vineyard property is stunning from the moment you enter. A long driveway, then a gorgeous stone and timber entrance welcomes you as you look up to the property's elevated position. The vines meet you next, being a dry-grown vineyard with a focus on quality wine production. The vineyard at Barton Jones Wines has some of the oldest vines in the Geographe wine region having been planted in 1978. The plantings, including cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, semillon and chenin blanc are all compatible with the region's climate and the well drained desirable gravel soils aiding premium wine production.
The stunning wine is awarded a 4-star Halliday Wine Companion rating and the maturity of the vines is an important aspect in the exceptional fruit quality. This underpins the production of premium wines together with a hands-on approach to vineyard management, utilising traditional viticulture practices and minimal intervention.
Sitting above the vines is the centrepiece of the entire property, the Cellar Door. Doubling as a function centre, it is best described as a statement of engineering and design. The view from here looks out over the vineyard and over the entire valley to State forest, with glimpses of the edge strip of Donnybrook. With its functional space, sale area event hosting and commercial kitchen, words cannot describe the curved structure combining components such as lime rendered straw bale and a photovoltaic solar power system in the roof structure.
Above this again are the operational sheds, wine storage area, water tanks system and then to the homestead. The home views offer different aspects of the property and overlook another vineyard block. Renovated with a tasteful modern feel, the features and views are fitting to the property. There is also undercover parking for 2 vehicles.
The rear of the property has potential for chalet development or other agricultural pursuits. This part offers stunning views but in a south westerly direction. Call now for further information and to arrange an inspection.
