At the end of 2020 we opened our cellar door, just inside the farm gate at 741 Cowaramup Bay Road, Gracetown. It is open on Wednesdays through Sundays from 11am to 5pm.
Julie Hartley is our Cellar Door Manager and she looks forward to showing you through the wines. Members of the Friends of Grace Farm mailing list can receive 10% off their wine purchases and our Excelsa Wine Club members can also receive their usual 20% off at the Cellar Door too.
We are also host a number of special tasting events to be held at the cellar door throughout the year, so be sure to join the Friends of Grace Farm mailing list or Excelsa Wine Club to be first to find out. You can sign up HERE.
We are currently taking a break from exclusive tastings by appointment, but this experience will return in the future. Stay tuned...
The cellar door is an intimate space that allows us to continue to offer a personalised wine tasting experience. The prefabricated building was constructed in Perth and travelled down to the farm on the back of a low loader. From the outset, a pre-fab structure was in keeping with Grace Farm's desire to tread gently on the land. We were able to keep site works and building waste to a minimum. Finishing touches to the tasting room involved timber milled at Grace Farm from declining or fallen mature trees, in particular the lovely seasoned marri lining boards behind the bar and the bar itself, created by well-known local cabinet maker Jake Jakovich. Another local builder Mick Short worked with our timber to build the deck and pergola. Marc, from Magic Electrical Services in Bunbury, has helped realise our dream of connecting via an off-grid system, in keeping with our goal of sustainability in the vineyard.
The cellar door introduces visitors to Grace Farm's incredible variety of forest vegetation: karri, marri, jarrah and yarri (blackbutt), all of which can be viewed from the tasting room.
Organic fruit, vegetables and olives are also grown at Grace Farm, where three generations of the family help with weeding, pruning, thinning and picking. From time to time, seasonal produce will be available at the cellar door, including stone fruit, apples, citrus, garlic, potatoes and beans.
We hope to see you there soon!
