Blind Corner started at our original vineyard, located in Margaret River, Western Australia. We have worked since 1996 in the wineries and vineyards of Margaret River and have also added experience from 2 years working with wine overseas. The overseas jaunt culminating in 6 months living in an old builders van - trying to visit every major surf break and wine region in Western Europe. We almost got them all too.
It was in the van that the Blind Corner journey was hatched and refined. We wished to live on our own vineyard and make wines with minimal outside influences.
Our original vineyard is located in the sub-region of Wilyabrup and was planted in 1997.
The wines are all hand (and foot) made using a variety of techniques with the aim to best reflect our patch of dirt.
In May 2015 we settled on a new vineyard which we hope will eventually supply all of our grape needs. This vineyard has been conventionally managed for 20 years prior to our purchase. Our first vintage on the new vineyard is 2016 and the first wines should be out in August 2016.
If you are interested in the way we make our wines, please sign up to our newsletter or contact us. You can find a list of what we use in our winemaking, including grapes, by clicking here.
We supply some amazing restaurants around the world, and ship to lovely people all around Australia. At this point we do not ship internationally from our website. Drop us a line if you would like to know how to get some in your part of the world
