Hawker Ridge Wines
Hawker Ridge Wines is a family owned and operated vineyard, situated in Kendenup, Western Australia in the Mt Barker wine district. The vineyard is a few quiet kilometres from the Kendenup township, 70 kilometres north of Albany and the Southern Ocean, and 20 kilometres from Mt Barker. The climate is cool and dry with warm summers.
From the vineyard there are sensational views north-east to the Stirling Ranges and south-east to the Porongurups. Gentle sea breezes blow from the south-west and south-east, and on summer evenings cool air flows down from the slopes of the Stirling Ranges. The vineyard sits atop a local high point on well-drained gravelly loam, rich in lime and free of salt. It is an ideal location for growing cool climate Shiraz and Riesling.
We first planted vines of Shiraz and Riesling at Hawker Ridge in September 2001, and the first vintages were harvested in 2004. Our wines are made in Mt Barker by acclaimed winemaker Mike Garland.
Castle Rock Estate
Castle Rock Estate is nestled on the eastern slopes of the Porongurup Range and is named after a prominent nearby landmark, in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. The vineyard has a cool and elevated north-easterly aspect, resulting in intensely flavoured wines, particularly Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Castle Rock Estate was established in 1983 by Angelo and Wendy Diletti and is now run by their son Rob.
3 Drops Winery & Olive Oil
Three drops make for perfection. Take one drop of luxurious olive oil, a drop of delightful wine and blend with a drop of clear spring water. The result is 3drops, Mount Barker's premium producer of wine and olive oil.
The creation of 3drops has been an evolutionary process. It started life as a traditional Mount Barker family farm where 3drops owner Joanne Bradbury grew up and over the years has been crafted to become one of WA's most acclaimed producers of olive oil and distinctive regional wines.
3drops is situated at Mount Barker, in the heart of the Western Australia's Great Southern wine region.The original 3drops vineyard comprises 15 fertile hectares. The 1982 planted Patterson vineyard was aquired by 3drops in 2007 and together these vineyards provide a range of preium fruit for our range of wines.
3drops is fortunate to have a long standing team of Viticulturist, Ray Williams and Winemaker, Rob Diletti.
Ray was responsible for planting our Wragg Road vineyard 22 years ago. Since that time Ray has understaken all 3drops viticulture including management of our older Patterson vineyard. Rob Diletti, one of WA's mostly highly regarded winemakers, has been expertly crafting our wines since 2003.
Poacher's Ridge is a family owned and operated vineyard just outside of Mount Barker, in the Great Southern town of Narrikup. With only 20 acres under vine, we're about the smallest single estate vineyard you can find, and located in one of the worlds largest wine regions. As much as possible, we take a minimalist approach and hand tend the vines that we quite literally live by. With this philosophy, we produce exceptional cool climate wines, driven by the terroir, governed by the seasons and a faithful expression of the land we call home.
The amazing views of the Stirling Range inspired the name ARCADIA, much used in Greek and Roman poetry as a place where people were believed to enjoy the perfect life. For us, it's a place to enjoy good wine, good food and good friends. The ever changing panorama of the Stirling Range makes for the perfect setting in which to do just that.
When we first travelled to Kendenup we discovered our own piece of rural paradise. ARCADIA is a family run single vineyard on Red Gum Pass Road, Kendenup Western Australia. The vineyard was first planted in 1997 on slopes that dip into the picturesque creek known locally as Dead Man’s Creek.
Snow on Bluff Knoll
Bluff Knoll is the highest peak of the Stirling Range in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.

Lake Poorrarecup, north of Mount Barker, is an enormous freshwater lake with sandy beaches that presents a glorious setting for a myriad of activities. Enjoy a swim in the tantalising calm waters or sunbathe on the soft sandy beach. Children will feel safe thanks to the gentle sloping shorelines.
Launch your boat from the boat ramp and spend the day sailing the huge expanse of water. Watching the prolific displays of the resident water birds and enjoy the idyllic surroundings. Alternatively join many of the locals and water-ski or canoe on the calm flat water.
Serve up a feast at the shaded picnic facilities before returning to the water or exploring the area on foot. Take a walk along the nature trail to explore the bush land and keep an eye out for various orchids that grow here.
Complete the perfect day out watching the magnificent sun set over the lake. Lake Poorrarecup is a 30 minute drive from Kendenup Cottages and Lodge
