Located beside the magnificent Swan River, Mandoon Estate has developed a reputation as one of the Swan Valley’s best wineries and most popular destinations.
As well as the cellar door, showcasing the Estate’s range of award-winning fine wines, within the picturesque grounds also lies a microbrewery and casual dining venue, the Homestead Brewery; fine dining restaurant Wild Swan, where executive chef Michael Hartnell creates modern and innovative à la carte and degustation menus that combine classic techniques with the finest local and seasonal produce; a gourmet deli and beer garden offering charcuterie and cheese platters, roast meat on the spit and gourmet sausages alongside a children’s playground as well as the property’s original homestead, dating back to circa 1905, which has been restored and now houses the Linton & Kay Art Gallery.
Also onsite, luxury accommodation is available at The Colony, 32 spacious, luxuriously appointed rooms and suites overlooking a beautiful section of the Swan River and the property's original verdelho vineyard, planted in 1895.
Prior to the establishment of Mandoon Estate, the property had been in the hands of the Roe family since settlement in the 1840s. In 2008, the Erceg family purchased the property from the Roe family and set about creating Mandoon Estate. It is the mission of Mandoon Estate to preserve the cultural and historical heritage of this property as well as demonstrate the full potential of the Swan Valley as a significant wine producing region.
Mandoon Estate produces a boutique range of premium wines from well-preserved low-yielding single vineyard sites in the Swan Valley and other prominent Western Australian regions, using traditional methods that clearly demonstrate both varietal and regional characteristics.
The Mandoon Estate vineyard is currently planted with Verdelho, Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Frontignac. The vines are managed to achieve very low cropping levels using vertical shoot positioning, hand cane pruning and minimal irrigation. For more temperate styles, grapes come from Mandoon’s other historic vineyard, the former Bramley Research Station in Margaret River.
Mandoon’s Verdelho vines are also some of the oldest in Western Australia, some dating back to plantings in 1895.
Located just 25 minutes’ drive from Perth, Western Australia’s oldest wine region, the beautiful Swan Valley, surrounds the upper reaches of the Swan River. Some of Western Australia's finest wines and local produce can be found in the Swan Valley, home to over 100 wineries and numerous gourmet food producers.
