XABREGAS was established in 1996 by the Hogan family. It is a proud Great Southern estate producing wine that is truly reflective of the Mt Barker vineyard and the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. Xabregas consists of 961 acres of which two sites were planted over 181 acres – Spencer (57 acres) and Figtree (124 acres). The vineyard areas were carefully selected for their ability to produce wines of finesse and elegance. The plantings consist of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. There is a focus and commitment to producing a range of wine styles with the Riesling and Shiraz varieties. The Mad Men range is a side project for the winemakers at Plantagenet using wild yeast, whole bunch fermentation and maintaining the ‘natural’ winemaking philosophy as much as possible ensuring the wines are healthy and technically correct.
