WA’s Italian Grape Variety Pioneers.

Back in 1989 a Kiwi girl met a West Aussie boy whilst working in Melbourne. A common love of travel saw them work and travel overseas together for a few years, before returning to Melbourne.

In early 1997 they embarked on a ‘tree change’ – relocating closer to family and to a 10 acre property near Harvey, Western Australia. This would become Vineyard 28 – with the first vines planted in the Spring of 1998.

In 2005 they took on the lease at Wildwater Vineyard, in the nearby Harvey Hills to expand their plantings.

Celebrating 25 years in business in 2023, Vineyard 28 is well known for Italian varieties – Pignoletto, Arneis, Fiano, Barbera, Montepulciano, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo.
