The Smithbrook vineyard sits on a 100-hectare property in Pemberton, an emerging wine region in WA’s South West. The beautiful property, surrounded by towering Karri trees and with its gentle rolling hills, has become known for its serene setting and for the abundant presence of truffles, fresh water marron and grazing land.
Underlying the southern corner of Western Australia is a huge mass of granite rock called the Yilgarn craton. The Yilgarn craton is recognised as the oldest rock formation on earth dating back more than 3 billion years. The gravelly ironstone soils that have formed on the higher ground above the craton are found throughout Pemberton and the Smithbrook vineyard.
Smithbrook wines capture the essence of what this beautiful region has to offer without interfering with the spectacular and picturesque natural environment that surrounds the vineyard. Organic practices are used, and a fresh water catchment keeps water usage low and trains vines to be tolerant of seasonal variances.
