Sandalford Winery: a wine tour to remember…
Join us in the Swan Valley for a tour that includes a visit to one of Western Australia’s oldest and largest privately owned wineries. Taste award-winning Sandalford wines as you witness this spectacular winery in operation, as the winemaking process journeys from vineyard to bottle.
Sandalford has earned their excellent reputation, having made wines for over 150 years. Founded in 1840, the business returned to family ownership in the early 1990s, run by Deborah and Peter Prendiville. Although maintaining traditional principles, the couple has done much to make the winery more contemporary. Due to this modernisation, Sandalford can now hold almost 1 million litres of wine in French and American oak barrels, held in some 600 m² of underground storage. Two vineyards supply the grapes for their wines; one in the Wilyabrup region in Margaret River and the other in the Swan Valley.
Sandalford produces five ranges of wine. The popular Element and Winemaker’s range are their entry point wines. Following this range is the Margaret River range (in the mid-tier price bracket). The Margaret River range uses only declassified fruit originally intended for the Estate Reserve and super premium Prendiville Reserve collections, which sit at the peak of the Sandalford portfolio.
Your visit to Sandalford Estate is destined to be an enjoyable experience, definitely one to remember. Quoted as being “unquestionably W.A.’s leading ‘Wine tourism’ facility”, it boasts multiple awards for wine tourism. This impressive estate houses function rooms, alfresco dining, expansive gardens, the renowned Cellar Door (shop) and more.
