Fermoy Estate

Western Australia | Margaret River

Our Review

A long-established winery with plantings of semillon, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and shiraz. The Young family acquired Fermoy Estate in '10 and built a larger cellar door which opened in ’13, signalling the drive to increase domestic sales. They are happy to keep a relatively low profile, however difficult that may be given the quality of the wines. Jeremy Hodgson brings with him a first-class honours degree in oenology and viticulture, and a CV encompassing winemaking roles with Wise Wines, Cherubino Consultancy and, earlier, Plantagenet, Houghton and Goundrey Wines. -JAMES HALLIDAY
