In 2003 we found just the perfect property to plant a vineyard in the Whicher Range at Chapman Hill, and in 2008 we released our first wines under the Whicher Ridge brand. We grow and source the grapes for our wines from three wine regions in Western Australia, spread across the wine regions of Margaret River, Geographe and the Great Southern.
In 2014, we received our first 5 star winery rating and Whicher Ridge was named as one of the Ten Dark Horse Wineries in the 2015 Halliday Australian Wine Companion, which was a rewarding accolade after the many years of hard work spent establishing our vineyard, winery and cellar door. Since then we have been awarded 5 star winery ratings by Halliday again in 2015, 2017 and 2018, and currently are rated as a 4.5 star winery.
In 2018, 2019 and 2020, Whicher Ridge has been rated as one of Australia’s top 300 wineries by The Real Review.
Our label is inspired by a photo taken by Neil of our vineyard. The large marri (red gum) tree stands proudly in the top corner of our vineyard. The lightning bolt on the label and on our logo is about our ESP, our Energy, Strength and Power.
