GREAT SOUTHERN | REGIONAL VENUES
uperior attention-to-detail and
commitment to excellence has steered
Plantagenet Wines to become one of
the most trusted family-owned wine
brands in the country.
Because of this, locals, families, groups and
companies frequent the venue not only to enjoy
the sensational wines, but also for its ambience
and creative catering using local produce.
The winery’s first vines were planted in
1969 by Tony Smith, a descendant of the
Plantagenet royal family, providing the vineyard’s
first wines in 1974. In 1999, Lionel Samson
and Son Pty Ltd, the long-time Plantagenet
Wines wholesale representative, purchased
the winery and vineyards.
The company has received multiple accolades
in this time, taking home awards at the National
Cool Climate Wine Show, Sydney International
Wine Competition, Perth Royal Wine Show,
Royal Melbourne Wine Show, Qantas Wine Show
of Western Australia, Canberra International
Riesling Challenge, and more. In 2015, it was also
awarded Gourmet Traveller’s Large Cellar Door of
the Year, Great Southern - further endorsement
of the wonderful facility and service it provides.
The historic cellar door and cafe building is
a stunning spot for weddings, corporate
launches, birthdays and other celebrations.
Made from 100-year-old recycled timbers and
a local stone material, the building has an old-
world charm, but its decor is modern and tasteful.
The venue encourages guests to explore and
embrace its history, and to add a piece of their
personal history to the winery’s. The large gardens
are extensively landscaped with native trees and
bushes to resemble an English cottage garden.
The venue is able to include any additional
services you may require, including audiovisual
equipment, dancefloor, pop-up bars, corporate
display tents and external caterers.
