Forest Hill Vineyard

Western Australia | Great Southern

Our Review

This family-owned business is one of the oldest ‘new’ winemaking operations in WA and was the site of the first grape plantings in Great Southern in 1965. The Forest Hill brand became well known, aided by the fact that a ’75 Riesling made by Sandalford from Forest Hill grapes won 9 trophies. The quality of the wines made from the oldest vines (dry-grown) on the property is awesome (released under the numbered vineyard block labels). Exports to the UK, the US and Finland. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Established in 1965 by WA Wine Pioneer Betty Pearse (Quick), Forest Hill is Western Australia’s oldest cool-climate vineyard and a proud family-owned boutique winery, creating exciting wines of the highest quality. Each is made to be a true reflection of the premium Western Australian grape-growing region of Mt Barker in the State’s Great Southern, expressing unique regional and varietal characters combined with finesse, elegance and definition.
