Founded in 1956, this family-owned winery produces a range of award-winning premium boutique red and white wines, specialising in bottle-fermented “methode traditionelle” sparkling styles made from chardonnay and, more unusually, semillon, chenin blanc, shiraz and merlot.
Winemaker Peter Garbin (son of founder Duje Garbin) wife Katrina, and sons Joel and Adam have a philosophy of hands-on premium winemaking with personal service. Fruit is sourced from their Estate vineyards in Gingin and the Swan Valley, and grown with low chemical inputs and no pesticides. The Garbin’s also produce rich, traditional fortified styles for which the Valley is justly famous.
Watch out for the Garbin Estate Verdelho always a Gold or Trophy winner, and their limited release Sangiovese available only from cellar door.
This charming winery is ideally located at the eastern end of the Swan Valley close to airports, restaurants and accommodation.
