Our viticultural team is equipped to tend the vineyard in a clean green sustainable manner and at the same time, focus on producing fruit to specification. Says a team leader, "We grow wine, not grapes. It sounds strange but when you walk into this vineyard, it is all about how the grapes taste not about how the vines look."
The wines are made under contract at Plantagenet by Chief Winemaker, Luke Eckersley. After completing a Bachelor of Science in Oenology and Viticulture at Curtin University of Technology he travelled to Europe and the USA to gain some very valuable international wine making experience before returning to Western Australia to pursue his career and passion for winemaking. Luke has worked at Forest Hill and Rockcliffe before being appointed Chief Winemaker at Plantagenet Wines.
