In Detail

On March 2nd, 1990 after some fifteen years of planning, Brian Edwards, Edwards Winery founder and amateur pilot, left Binbrook Airfield in England bound for Australia. Flying solo in his 1943 Tiger Moth “Matilda”, he set off to achieve his goal to fly the route of the great Australian aviation pioneers, Bert Hinkler and Sir Charles Kingsford Smith. His trip also set out to honour the memory of his late father Clifford, who went missing in action in World War II, and to raise money for Legacy who had cared for him and his mother for twenty years.  It was an epic journey to say the least, from the first disastrous day of the journey where he had to make a forced landing due to a snapped crankshaft all the way to his successful completion of the journey and arrival at Langley Park in Perth on May 13th, In 1991 Brian and his wife Jenny looking to a ‘tree change’, purchased some land in Western Australia’s wine region of Margaret River. This piece of land was particularly appealing to Brian because he could get an airstrip along the back boundary. Centrally located on Caves Road, Edwards is 5 minutes drive north-west of Margaret River. This picturesque 25 hectare vineyard is home to some of the region’s most elegant and vibrant award winning wines, produced through a hands-on approach in the vineyard coupled with experience and attention to detail in the winery. Edwards Wines are available Australia-wide as well as internationally. In the words of Western Australian Wine Critic Ray Jordan, “This is one venue you should mark in your diary. Better still, drop in – you will like the people.”
