About Fairbrossen

closed with glazing and blinds for your comfort, but can be fully opened when the weather is suitable. We invite you to experience the ambiance of our rural setting while enjoying the views across the vineyard to the forest beyond.

Our menu may change depending on the season to ensure freshest ingredients. We source most of our produce from local growers and producers. Our wonderful chef prepares all meals fresh and they are cooked to order. We offer an A la carte menu of country-style meals and are renowned for our delightful Devonshire Teas with fresh scones, jam and cream. We also have an added selection of cakes and pastries.

Whilst we offer a core menu to keep most satisfied, our chef is also constantly finding small volumes of interesting produce, as they become available, and dishing out some wonderful specials. Be sure to check out ‘small batch specials’ on the chalk board in the cafe.

Perth Hills

The vineyard is situated on gravel soils overlying deeper granite base rocks. A bore on the property provides a source of water for the newer vines. As the vines grow older they will be allowed to develop without any external water supply to produce fruit with more intensity and depth of flavour. All practices on this vineyard are organic including low chemical inputs and no pesticide use.

The vineyard of approximately 3 acres is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Syrah, Petit Verdot and Tempranillo. First plantings began in 2001. Fruit for wine production is also selected from the adjacent property, which contains a vineyard of approximately 2 acres of Shiraz.

In the vineyard careful management practices are adopted to ensure the production of high quality, low volume fruit. At harvest the fruit is all handpicked and the best fruit selected by our winemaker for conversion during the winemaking process.

Wine Making Process

Varieties, grown in the right areas, in the most harmonious way with nature, are used to produce our wines. We believe in minimal intervention in both the vineyards and winery, so the grapes fully express the characters and influences of the vineyard sites. White grapes and our sparkling bases are hand-picked to preserve varietal integrity and quality, and low yields are encouraged on all vineyard sites. Red fruit grown in the Perth Hills is hand-picked, whereas Margaret River reds are machine harvested in the cool of the night. The timing of harvest is based on taste. We have two basket presses, one mechanised, the other hand powered (with a little help of sweet grape juice for energy of course!). Both presses are old school, and deliberate oxidation of juice is common. Grapes are pressed to taste, and no additives are used. Native yeasts are encouraged on all grape varieties. Open fermenters, foot stomping and hand-plunging is used for fermenting reds. Each ferment and variety is treated on its merit. (no recipes here!) Typical fermentation lasts up to 28 days, but sometimes the stubborn native yeasts require a little more time! Temperature is used to control the rates of ferment. About 85% of the wines we produce will see some oak during there life. Our Blanc de Blancs spends a minimum 30 months on yeast lees in the bottle, whereas our Verdelho may be released as early as May of the same year. All reds spend time in French oak. Because we have minimal filtration and no fining, the time in oak ensures stability, softness and balance. All wines are ready to drink upon release. The fruity white and Rose are bottled young for freshness and vibrancy, whereas reds are bottled the following year. All wines are hand-bottled at the winery. Currently screw cap closures are used on all table wines to guarantee the wine as good as the day it was bottled.
