Both Owners Wendy and Braary Stimpson are from England and South Africa. On their many visits to the beautiful Margaret River, they fell in love with the natural beauty of the region and the finest wines the place has to offer. They settled in Margaret River in 2005, and in 2011 they found a pleasant location, with built up vineyards and natural land with original floristics and structure, that currently includes Passel Estate Winery.
Andy Ferreira, a professional Viticulturist is responsible to manage the vineyard throughout the year. A blend of cane pruning (Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon) and spur pruning (Chardonnay and Shiraz) is infused. A method of shoot thinning, removing of leaves and bunch thinning process is initiated to limit and reduce the cropping to target.
The process ensures that fruits are exposed to natural sunlight and air flow is in abundance for the plantation. Andy is an experienced professional deploying the sustainable processes all over the vineyard. Whether it is water management, pest control or mid-row cropping, Andy works rigorously in his ways of sustainable practices.
