Overview

Fire Gully farm was one of the original group settlement blocks taken up in 1922 in the Willyabrup locality of the Margaret River district. Bill and Kath Butcher took over the farm in 1946 and it was passed on to Ellis and Margaret Butcher in 1971.

Fire Gully is one of the most beautiful and unique properties in Willyabrup and the range of wines produced from the vines there are truly delightful.

Winery Tasting Notes

Medium bodied cabernets merlot blend that punches out those typical blackcurrant and chocolate characters. Throw in a little black olive and scented mint and you have a most pleasing red for drinking over the next few years. The palate is silky smooth with a grainy tannin finish to balance

Did you know that on a brisk day in March twelve people from several countries around the world spent 8 hours berry sorting this wine? You heard me: not bunch sorting (that was done too), not driving a machine harvester and shaking berries off a vine, but berry sorting - by hand! Approximately one billion individual berries - only selecting the best. I wish this was just a joke or a sales pitch but I personally spent 8 hours sorting those

berries so you could enjoy this wine just that little bit more. They say that magicis just someone spending more time on a craft than any normal person would think was reasonable. Enjoy the magic

Blending Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot gives the wine backbone and tightness of structure while emphasizing its smooth, soft texture and fragrance

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The wines of Pierro are the culmination of passion, innovation, location, climate and time. Wherever our wines are enjoyed around the world today they invariably impart a tangible trace of their idyllic place of origin - warm southern climes, ancient soils, healthful vines and years of skilled hands-on viticulture and winemaking.

We are fortunate in that our beautiful Willyabrup vineyard is located in what is widely regarded as amongst the finest wine grape growing terrain in the world. Located in the heart of Western Australia's renowned Margaret River wine region, this far-flung locality has a viticultural pedigree second to none.

The district is situated in the continent's deep south-west, a relatively young region unsullied by the impact of human population and development. Fresh air, clean seas, unspoiled country and fruitful earth have been simple, priceless qualities here for millennia.

Surrounded by open water on three sides between capes Leeuwin and Naturaliste, the wine region is almost completely free of pollutants and contaminants. Year-round it is swept by pure, cool sea breezes, blowing in off the Indian and Southern Oceans. Mild, wet winters and sun-splashed summer seasons add to the viticultural equation.

A stable and predictable Mediterranean maritime climate is a vigneron's dream-come-true, and Margaret River has this too. The vineyard is situated on the north-facing south bank of the Willyabrup Brook, a pristine freshet that meanders down its namesake valley to the sea.

Couple this with soils ideally suited to the needs of classic varietal grapevines and we find ourselves in a kind of viticultural paradise. Amid this marvellous terroir sits Pierro Margaret River Vineyards.
