We love the landGilbert Wines
We are fourth generation farmers who love the land! Now turned vignerons, our vines, draw from the rich soils of Mt Barker in the Great Southern region of Western Australia and exhibit the terroir of this exceptional region.
Being family run it was the third generation of Gilberts who took the leap into establishing a vineyard with Jim and Bev Gilbert planting the first of our vines in 1985. Subsequent plantings were also made in 1987, 1989, 1994 and 1997 leaving us with 24 acres of vineyard producing fantastic Riesling, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our cellar door was also set up and established by Jim and Bev Gilbert opening in 1990. The cellar door was established in the old apple packing shed which was used by the first two generations of Gilberts. It retains its history and character today creating a unique environment for you to sample and enjoy our award winning wines.
In 2003, Jim and Bev Gilbert extended onto the cellar door our café. Once again ahead of the times, Jim and Bev noticed a unique opportunity in the area, creating one of the first cellar doors to have a café attached in the region. The café is open Friday to Monday 10am to 5pm for you to enjoy the best local produce and food our region has to offer whilst also enjoying a glass or bottle of our award winning wines.
In 2014, the fourth generation of Gilberts returned to the family business with two of Jim and Bev's three sons (Clinton and Matthew) stepping into the family business. Exciting times lay ahead for our wines and family business with the next generation bringing loads of energy, enthusiasm and ideas. Stay tuned!
Over the years our wines have maintained their high quality and have received numerous awards. All of our wines are available through our cellar door, online, mail order and in select liquor stores, restaurants and bars throughout Western Australia.
We look forward to you visiting us here at Gilberts.
