Overview of Plantagenet

Established: 1974
Winemaker: John Durham
Annual Cases: 90000
Region: Mount Barker
Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In a stroke of serendipity, English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendant of the Plantagenet line, ended up settling down and planting his first vines in Western Australia's Plantagenet Shire.

It was in 1968 that young English migrant farmer Tony Smith first planted trial vineyards of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon on his Bouverie property just west of Mount Barker. Three years later, more vines, including Riesling, went in on a neighbouring farm, Wyjup. Even the first wines from these young wines were tight, lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.

In 1975, an apple packing shed in Mount Barker was bought and converted into the region's first winery, and Plantagenet Wines was on its way to becoming one of Western Australia's bet known and most respected wine producers.

The business has since continued to strengthen and consolidate to ensure that its reputation for producing elegant, well-structured wines with balance and complexity spreads beyond Australia to an international audience.

Plantagenet's vineyards have been carved out of the region’s distinctive Marri, or Red Gum, soils – gravelly loams that have good drainage over a base of clay, sand or the ubiquitous local ironstone rock.
