Located to the east of Albany, the Willoughby Park Estate Vineyard is a hidden gem. The property is found in extraordinary country at the extreme end of the Porongurup Ranges, on the left flank of the Kalgan River. In James Halliday’s words, it is a ‘mighty mouse of a vineyard’ and was described in the 2010 Wine Opus as ‘a rising star’. Kalgan River gained early critical acclaim from wine writers and has gained an impressive awards record in Australia’s national wine shows.

The vines are less than 20kms from the chilly waters of the Southern Ocean which brings cooling summer breezes, slowing the ripening of the grapes and increasing intense flavour development. Terrior, natural climatic advantage and sensitive viticulture come together in this place of beauty and potential.
