Protected by the ancient Boranup Forest, Green Valley Vineyard is one of Margaret River’s most established vineyards, with an explosive history.
One of Margaret River’s earlier established vineyards began in 1979 with planting throughout the early 1980s and has since reaped the benefits of serious long-term viticulture investment. Before wine, the property’s life was as a “Gelignite Block” which stored explosives used to clear the nearby forest for farmland settlements of World War I soldiers.
The surrounding Boranup Forest is not just picturesque but also protects the vineyard from the ocean winds and storms. Karri loam soils and access to a natural water supply from the McCleod creek, which runs through the property, supports long, gentle, even ripening of the fruit. The range focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Cellar door tastings are available, but it is recommended that visitors call in advance.
