Oakway Estate Wines

About

All of our wines are available for free tasting. You can try the styles you like or be adventurous and try some of our alternative styles. When you have found your special like you can order it by the glass or purchase a bottle (corkage applies). So with that in mind, you can sit down, enjoy the wine and of course the view, our hospitality and the special someone(s) accompanying you. We have a changing vista throughout the year due to the Mediterranean Climate we experience and the seasons give stark contrasts to the landscape. The Cellar Door is air conditioned for year round comfort and during winter we light our Biofuel flame fire to add to the cosy atmosphere. The Cellar Door Cafe: Our food and drinks menu is simple but delicious and is designed to complement our wines. Your can order a tasting plate of cheeses, meats, dips, olives, crackers (gf option) and turkish bread, a nibbles plate of cheese and crackers (gf option) popular with wine tasters, or one of our gourmet pizzas made with locally and in season produce. We also have a selection of soft drinks, mineral water, and our pure rain water available not to mention freshly ground coffee, a selection of teas, chai latte and hot chocolate.

Practices & Techniques

Our approach to vineyard management means we are constantly observing vine vigour and growth. We take pride in ourselves for using minimal chemicals, choosing to monitor insect populations and other potential disease and use more natural alternatives to problems like our team of "Guinea Fowls". We undertake fruit thinning, leaf plucking, and water management to ensure intense berry flavours are achieved - good wines start in the vineyard.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Three generations of one family have toiled together to create the vineyards of Oakway Estate in the Geographe Wine Region of Western Australian, northerly neighbour to the prestigous wine region of Margaret River and near the cities of Bunbury and Busselton. The property originally supported apple and stone fruit orchards before its potential for producing premium wines was realised by the present owners, Wayne and Ria Hammond, in 1997. Today the property supports the winery and cellar door, vineyard, a plantation of sustainable blue gum trees, and beef cattle.

Our vines were first planted in 1997 on mostly light gravel over loam soils, and our first commercial vintage occurred in 2002. Since 2003 we have consistently won awards for our wines.

Most of our grapes are grown on the cool summer slopes of the Capel River in the district of Paynedale, near Donnybrook, and we source other grapes from the Geographe and Swan Valley regions of Western Australia. We classify ourselves as a boutique winery, with limited production and an emphasis on making premium quality wines.
