Come visit the Ferguson Valley in the lovely South West of W

We headed off on a Trip to Ferguson Valley recently and were very impressed with scenery, wineries, the Wild Bull Brewery & especially Gnomsville.

First stop St Aidan Winery for a wee wine tasting. We arrived as a wedding party was gathering. A very impressive location. We were impressed with the Chardonnay 2015 & a lovely cab Sauvignon 2016.

Next stop Gnomsville.
The gnome planning Department has approved lots of planning and improvement applications recently. Here are some pictures for you to see for yourself.

Then off to Willow Bridge Estate was the largest winery in the Region. We were treated to see tastings inside the barrel room. The outstanding wines we tasted were the 2018 Dragonfly Chardonnay & then there appeared the 2017 Gravel Pit Shiraz. For those of you that have tasted Harvey Freshs OMG ( Oh My God) cheese this wine is a winner.

We finished off our Valley visit at The Wild Bull Brewery where we samples some beer, wine, ginger beer ( Deborah's favourite so far) and taste plates & pizza.

All the Ferguson Valley people were very welcoming. All the wineries in this Region are family owned. They are located in the Geograph wine region where one of our other favourite wineries is Whicher Ridge winery is located.

Best bet if your heading over for a visit, drop into the Dardanup Visitor centre and pick up a map of the area. We don't want you to miss out on anything. Until next time.
