In Detail

Sunnyhurst is a family owned vineyard and winery making small quantities of premium wines from hand-picked grapes. At Sunnyhurst you may taste award winning wines free of charge, and meet owner and winemaker Mark Staniford

Sunnyhurst is justly proud of the 8 Gold, 6 Silver, and more than 30 Bronze medals, as well as three "best of class" trophies which have been awarded to us in Australian wine shows since 2003.

In addition, favourable reviews of our wines have been printed in Scoop and Winewise magazines and Ray Jordan's West Australian Wine Guide. Sunnyhurst is truly a vine to table winery.

The winery was established by Mark and Laine Staniford in 2000 at the historic 1896 Sunnyhurst homestead, located in the picturesque Mattamatup valley just 3 Kms from the heart of Bridgetown. Bridgetown is in the centre of the Blackwood Valley Wine Region of Western Australia.

Sunnyhurst uses traditional winemaking methods, our grapes are pressed using a hand operated Italian basket press to gently extract the wine from the grape skins. We do however use refrigeration to ensure our white wines achieve great delicacy and flavour from a long cool fermentation.

Red wines receive between 18 and 24 months of oak maturation and a minimum of 12 months in bottle before sale.
 
The range of wines made by Sunnyhurst Winery includes: Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, SSB, both oaked and unwooded Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Merlot, Shiraz, Sparkling Shiraz, and  tawny Port. 

The cellar sales outlet is located in the beautiful gardens which surround the Sunnyhurst homestead. Customers are invited to wander in the gardens and admire the views over the vineyard to the Mattamatup and Blackwood River valleys. The gardens are a significant inclusion in the annual Spring and Autumn Festival of Country Gardens held in Bridgetown and surrounding areas.

Visitors are welcome to bring their picnic to accompany a bottle of Sunnyhurst wine in the garden.

The cellar sales stocks local produce including olive oil, and features exhibitions of quality paintings, drawings by local and West Australian artists.

Free delivery for both 6 and 12 bottles within WA.

Mastercard, Visa, AMEX,  EFTPOS and Pay Pal welcome
