It all started while enjoying a ‘quiet tipple’

John was enjoying a quiet tipple at the local watering-hole on a Friday evening, when he heard of a property for sale in Wilyabrup. 40km southwest of his beer mat and lying between the forest and the massive expanse of Indian Ocean, this piece of land piqued an interest in John that was only exacerbated by further enquiry.

Never one to shrink from an opportunity, John and Jan purchased the property at an auction at the Vasse Hotel on 14 December 1985. What would become Frazer Woods was mostly bushland, plus one large paddock and a shack with no electricity. But John and Jan recognised in it something they could grow, nurture and encourage into life. It had potential.

They have worked exceptionally hard since those early days, building their reputation, and raising their family.  John and Jan continue to innovate and invest in state of the art equipment for the winery, however with his background as an electrician, John is also never afraid of improvisation!

It is with this spirit of determination, enjoyment, experimentation and excellence that, more than a quarter of a century later, they continue to produce Margaret River’s finest sparkling wines, crafted from local Chardonnay,  Pinot Noir and Shiraz.

Join us for an evening sampling these fantastic Margaret River Wines.

Make a night of it with our Tasting and Early Bird dinner package where you will enjoy the formal tasting followed by a delicious main course and complementing glass of house beer, wine or juice in our award-winning Club Restaurant.
