Founded in 1998, Ferngrove Wines chose Frankland River for its favourable viticultural location 90 kilometres from the coast. The Ferngrove valleys and slopes have the rare combination of rugged, classically West Australian ancient soils and the cooling influence of the converging Southern and Indian Oceans. Vindication of the site is evidenced by over 700 medals in the most respected Australian and International wine shows over that period. Situated in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, the dependable cool climate, gravelly soils, and pioneering spirit creates a remarkable site to make great wine.
