Situated 25kms from the ocean on the Western side of the Darling Ranges in the Geographe region in WA, the 420-acre property home to Willow Bridge Estate vineyard is the love child of Jeff and Vicki Dewar. They purchased the property in 1996 after Jeff decided following in his parent’s broad acre farming footsteps wasn’t for him. In 1997 they planted 100 acres of vines then another 50 acres two years later. First planted with Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyards have since been bolstered with small blocks of Viognier and Tempranillo.
