Growing for generationsGilbert Wines
Gilberts have been growing great flavours for the world for four generations now! Our previous generation grew apples for the export market.
We grow grapes (of course!) and prime lamb: both for the export and domestic markets. Our vineyard was planted in 1985. So that makes us 33 years old. Each time we planted a block of grapes along came a son.
Hence the "3 Devils range" and the"3 Lads Cabernet ". The boys are all in their twenties/thirties now so the title "3 Devils" seems a little inappropriate. However, this is such a popular line of the Gilbert range, how could we delete it?
The "3 Devils" range continues, with the added intrigue of 3 Lads. We wonder when the 3 Gents will be released? (Stay tuned!)
Our café boasts a culinary garden established by Jim and Bev Gilbert. We try to use as much seasonal produce from our culinary garden as we can through the café. Perhaps you have tried one of our delicious figs?
We proudly harvest stone fruit including apricots, plums, peaches and nectarines from our orchard that was planted by the very first generation of Gilberts on our land. The Mt Barker region is perfect for growing full flavoured produce.
Grapes grown on our property have been carefully selected in line with our climate in the region and soil profile on the property. Varieties include: Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon.
