The Swinney vineyard is a family owned 205 ha vineyard located in the Frankland River region of Western Australia. Swinney has developed an outstanding reputation as a long-term supplier of high-quality wine grapes to many of Western Australia’s premium wine producers as well as production of the family’s own Swinney wine label, which includes the acclaimed Farvie wines.
As the recent recipient of the inaugural ‘Young Gun of Wine - Australian Vineyard of the Year’ trophy, Swinney is recognised as combining both modern and Old-World viticultural techniques. These techniques are executed with precision through a combination of detailed manual work and state-of-the-art technology that are underpinned with an environmental focus.
While the vineyard is predominantly Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling, other varieties established include Malbec, Mencia, Cinsault, Counoise, Pinot Gris, Vermentino, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and bush vine plantings of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Tempranillo. The business continues to expand its area under vine, with an emphasis on clonal and varietal selection.
