Drakesbrook Wines - a quality product produced in the Peel Region
Situated in Waroona near Lake Naverino Dam, Drakesbrook Wines has views across the plain to the Peel Inlet in Mandurah.
Bernie, the owner and winemaker at Drakesbrook Wines, does not have a cellar door - it is on its' way but there are still plenty of places where you can buy and enjoy this local product.
The Stage Door and Redmanna Waterfront Restaurant sell Drakesbrook Wines - it can also be bought at Celebrations in Meadow Springs or Liquor Barons in Halls Head. If you wish to purchase wine online head to the vineyard's website.
With 18 varieties to choose from there is something for everyone - from a Sangiovese to a Tempranillo to more traditional styles such as Chardonnay and Shiraz.
The Peel Region has a meditterranean climate and is an emerging wine region. The first vines in Peel were planted in 1857 but it wasn't until the 1970's that the first commercial vineyard was established at Peel Estate by Will Nairn.
In 2014 Drakesbrook Wines were in the final three of the QANTAS Wine Awards.
