Rivendell Winery Estate

Western Australia | Margaret River

Our Review

Rivendell was established in 1987 by a local Margaret River family and became recognised for its gardens, restaurant and wines. The property was purchased by private investors in '04 (who established Howling Wolves in this location). The ensuing 11 years saw changing ownership of the property by a number of different parties. Fast forward to '15, and Darryn and Silje (Celia) Gruenthal joined Danny and Corinne Gruenthal (Darryn’s parents) in full ownership of the property. After a few years of extensive renovations, '18 was their first release of wine under the Rivendell label. The vineyard on the property is planted mostly to cabernet sauvignon, while the fruit for the remainder of the wines is purchased from local growers. Wines are currently sold only in WA. -ERIN LARKIN
