Bago was the natural choice when it came time to name the winery, as the luscious parcel of land upon which these fine vines have been grown is nestled at the foot of Broken Bago Mountain. The term Bago is thought to have been derived from the local aboriginal word for mountain “bulkara”, the ‘broken’ part due to the shattering of seams of rock in old gold mining shafts.
The Mobbs family ancestry have a long history of grape growing in the Hastings River Region dating back to the first plantings of Muscatel and Isabella varieties at Ballengara and Tuffins Lane late in the 19th Century. Today, Bago Vineyards continues this fine family tradition producing some of the most revered wines the Hasting River Region has to offer.
Gemma completed a degree in food technology at the University of Western Sydney before becoming part of our team in 2003. Gemma has had several years experience in the wine industry in both the Hastings River Region and Western Australia. In her spare time Gemma helps run a saw-mill and looks after three young children. Gemma is available and only too happy to talk food and wine on Tuesdays.

Poppy – The Driving Force/Chief Port Tester
If it wasn’t for Jim Mobbs Senior’s insistence over 22 years ago grapes would never have been planted on the property in the first place. You will find him in and around the vineyard 7 days a week, tinkering on some project or another, from extending sheds to fixing light bulbs. Without his support Bago Vineyards wouldn’t be where it is today. Come and enjoy a yarn with Poppy on any afternoon of the week at port o’clock at Cellar Door.
