Swan Valley Wines, Baskerville
Swan Valley Wines is a natural boutique family owned winery, nestled in the Darling Scarp of WA. Run by partners Paul Hoffman and Bree Lavell.
Drawing from our combined studies of nature, especially botany, ecology, naturopathy and viticulture, our focus is on sourcing the highest quality, old-vine material available, on the gravelly loam soils of the Darling Scarp foothills.
We also source from growers and collaborate with other makers who share our ethos. We are also the custodian of some of the oldest vines in Western Australia and are one of the only wineries to share a name with the underlying Sub Regional Geographic Indicator (GI).
It was only appropriate that we commit to producing zero addition, natural wines, representing the best of our terroir and the Swan Valley’s bio-cultural diversity. Our philosophy is to grow grapes and make wine as naturally as possible and to preserve the unique traditions forged by indigenous and migrant peoples.
