The establishment of Sandalford Wines in the Swan Valley in 1840 coincided with both the first European settlement at the Colony of Perth and the birth of Western Australia’s world famous wine industry.
In 1970, Sandalford was one of three initial pioneers of the Margaret River wine region (considered by many as one of the world’s truly great premium wine growing locations) when the first vines were planted at its 300 hectare vineyard at Wilyabrup.
Sandalford’s wine and wine tourism facilities have developed iconic status since the Prendiville family acquired the business in 1991
Today, we are extremely proud to be one of this country’s oldest and largest family-owned winemakers.
2016 is a milestone year for the company because it is 25 years since the Prendiville family took over from the descendants of its original founder, John Septimus Roe.
Under the guidance of the Prendivilles, who remain true to their long term vision for the progressive evolution of Sandalford Wines, both the Swan Valley and Margaret River operations have been extensively developed. Today the company’s portfolio of wines – along with its wine tourism, concert, retail and restaurant facilities – are recognised among the very best in Australia and are consistently regarded as world class.
In one of Australia’s most sustainable wineries, we create our current collection of Prendiville, Estate Reserve, Margaret River Range, Winemakers and Element award-winning wines. With advanced viticultural practices and a progressive winemaking team, we have a long-standing reputation for quality and exceeding expectations at every price point.
