Established in 2000, with state of the art production facilities, Harris River Estate is a single vineyard producer. We grow six grape varieties; Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Viognier, Verdelho and Cabernet Savignon. Our prime location, altitude and the dedication of our staff has led us to win our first gold medals at the Qantas Wine Show in 2008 for our 2007 Verdelho & 2007 Chardonnay, and being awarded the high accolade of a 5 Star Rating by James Halliday in 2008. Since then we have won a multitude of awards in both domestic and international tastings.
In 2015 we released our first 'Partners in Crime' brews from our very own microbrewery. In 2017 we starting producing Cider and breaking news in 2020 we released our first 'The Forager' range of Gins - watch this space for more details on this and our exciting collaboration with Beelagu Moort on a Boodja Gin and Beer.
We are situated 5km north of Collie, Western Australia, on the edge of the eastern border of the Georgraphe Wine Region. The property is 52Ha and we have 24Ha under vine. All wine is grown, made and bottled on the estate. Our soils are free draining ironstone gravel, this combined with our cool altitude enables us to produce premium wines with finesse and flavour.
We produce approx. 150 tonnes of fruit per year and our low crop levels of 6-7 tonnes per Ha and controlled irrigation gives us intensity of fruit flavours and color.
We protect this natural bounty by harvesting at night and into the early morning when fruit is cool, and with only 10 minutes from vine to crusher we are able to control fruit conditions into the tanks.
The 100-litre microbrewery is part of a staged improvement to the facilities at Harris River Estate. The theme of the brewery will be Partners in Crime, inspired by family dogs Tassie and Devil. The pair serve as inspiration for the first limited edition range of beverages aptly named The Devil You Know.
A master brewer has been commissioned and will work with our winemaker and brewmaker.
Now you can purchase your favourite Harris River premium wine in 6, 9 and 19 litre kegs. Perfect for your next function, Wine in a keg is easily dispensed into a carafe or glass.
