In Detail

As a pioneer of the Great Southern region of Western Australia, Plantagenet’s reputation is celebrated for its rich heritage, its expressive wines and family-owned sensibility, making it one of the most trusted wine brands in Australia.

Interestingly, the Plantagenet name was selected for two reasons; the winery is located in the  Plantagenet Shire of Western Australia and was founded by an actual descendant of the Plantagenet Royal line; a dynasty that came to prominence in England from 1189 until 1485, from King Henry the 2nd to King Richard the 3rd. The three gold lions in our logo are styled after the official royal crest of the House of Plantagenet.

Over the years, Plantagenet has honed its flagship varieties into a distinct Great Southern wine style; a depth of lively flavour, seamless elegance and natural purity. Our cellar door now boasts a wonderful lunch cafe called THE Shed, aptly named as the winery was originally purchased as an old apple packing shed.

Plantagenet exports wine to the US, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Russia, United Arab Emirates, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong.
