Overview

A cold and wet Spring in 2016 shaped a milder vintage in 2017, which was further interrupted by February and March rains. The resulting conditions led to a lengthy ripening period, and a 2-3 week delay to start of vintage. Lower temperatures at ripening are beneficial to retain freshness and elegance, and wines of lower alcohol and crisp acidity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible. The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family’s confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.

From the release of their very first wines, their efforts were quickly rewarded with critical acclaim, wine show success and most importantly, glowing feedback from wine lovers.
