Description

Certified Organic | 12844
“Every once in a while, you encounter an extraordinary patch of land, one that varies greatly from the surrounding landscape, one that is impossibly unique in so many ways, this is one such place.”

Through many years of planting then working the vineyard and farm an innate connection to the land has formed, a respect for the land and just how much it gives became apparent. Chris planting of the vines on our farm has been done with thoughtfulness and sensitivity to the land, the diversity is such that there are five different plots of vines totally a mere 15 acres, ensuing profoundly structured wine pulsating with energy from this carefully nurtured land.

Chris is deeply rooted to this piece of land having begun farming it at the tender age of 19. He is committed to an organic and holistic farming model signified by organic certification (ACO 12844).
From inception he has nurtured the land and the vines. Unwilling to compromise the health of the land, the state of his treasured vines and ultimately the quality of the fruit, he has worked the vineyard completely on his own from day one. No stranger to hard physical labour he hand-prunes every single one of the vines himself, year after year. Apart from the very day the grapes are harvested no one else is ever allowed to touch his vines.
He produces wines of purity and complexity, expressive of and deeply rooted to the land. It is an inimitable vision of a person who has focused their life’s work on a single vineyard. Only through viticultural focus and observation of the land and nature over decades can one truly understand and appreciate that complexity is achieved only with the mindful union of land, organic farming, soil, clone and minimal winemaking regimen.

Great Tasting
Windows is a small batch producer. Their wines are of exceptional quality. Our most recent visit was on a cold and wet day. The cellar door was warm and inviting with a very welcome wood burner glowing in the corner. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable of the wines. It is always a pleasurable experience to visit this cellar door.

Friendly service and excellent wines!
Happened to visit Windows as it was advertised as 'dog friendly'. What a lovely surprise! These are some of the best wines I have tasted in Margaret River. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful boutique vineyard worth a visit
This nice small vineyard is family run and offers a very good small selection of high quality whites and reds. Their Semillon sauvignon blanc and chardonnay were very appealing and we bought some cases. They do ship around Australia for you. They have a nice tasting area and a small boutique shop for cooking and souvenirs. The grounds are lovely and on a nice afternoon it is easy to while away a few hours at this Estate. Service was exemplary and the quality of the wine glasses amazing – beautiful tasting experience.
