DICKINSON ESTATE, located in the beautiful Blackwood Valley of Western Australia, produces exceptional quality, cool climate wines. Hand crafted by our award winning Winemaker, they offer intense flavour and elegance.
The DICKINSON ESTATE Vineyard was first established in 1994 and produced high quality fruit for leading Western Australian and South Australian wine producers , Goundrey, Alkoomi and Rockcliffe of Western Australia and Tinlins and Wolf Blass of South Australia.
Because of the consistent high quality fruit being produced in the vineyard for other national wine producers, we decided in 2009, to produce our own range of wines. Initially under the label named after the tammar wallaby which is native to the area and farm. Tammar Gully Wines have enjoyed growing success and acceptance in Australia, winning a total of 33 awards which include 2 Trophies for Best Wine of class, 2 Gold Medals, 3 Silver medals and 26 Bronze medals putting our wines in an elite category that most producers would love to attain.
More recently, the DICKINSON ESTATE wine label has been established, utilising the expertise of one of Australia’s Top Ten young Winemakers, Coby Ladwig of Rockcliffe Wines in Denmark, Western Australia. The wines are produced with patience and dedication by the wine making team at Rockcliffe. They have delightful flavours and elegance.
The DICKINSON ESTATE range of wines won International recognition at the 2014 Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Competition and again at the 2015 Hong Kong Wine Competition (see the AWARDS section below)
