Experience the 'little Italy' of the Geographe region through Italian grape varieties of Arneis, Dolcetto Nebbiolo at the Cellar Door, operated passionately by the Cumbers family. Back in 1989, a Kiwi girl named Pip met a West Aussie boy named Mark whilst working in Melbourne. The two shared a love of all things to do with wine, and in 1997 relocated to WA, purchasing a 10 acre property near Harvey (that was later named Vineyard 28). Some twenty years later, the property now boasts an extensive vineyard planted with mostly Italian varieties.
'28' is the colloquial name for the Port Lincoln Ringneck, a local parrot, due to their contact call, a whistled "twenty-eight". When planting the first vines, these cheeky birds were a little too helpful, thus it was decided to take their name for the property.
Enjoy wines such as Arneis, Moscato, Dolcetto, Dolcetto Freddo and Nebbiolo wines alongside classic Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties. (Fiano and Pignoletto in the future)
