Ashbrook Estate

Established in 1975 by the Devitt family, Ashbrook Estate stands as one of the pioneering wineries in the region, its roots intertwining with giants like Vasse Felix and Leeuwin Estate. Yet, amidst this legacy, Ashbrook remains grounded, prioritizing familial bonds and the craft of cultivating exquisite grapes that faithfully mirror their terroir. Their ethos echoes simplicity, favoring minimal intervention throughout the winemaking process. Unlike many, Ashbrook exclusively employs grapes nurtured on their single estate, where from vine to bottle, every step is meticulously executed. Nestled in the scenic Wilyabrup, their estate boasts a serene allure, though one must be wary of kangaroo crossings along its winding driveway.
