Dickinson Estate Wines are produced from selected fruit from the Dickinson Estate Vineyard in the beautiful Blackwood Valley Wine Region, nestled in the heart of the South West of Western Australia.
Undoubtedly the most scenic wine region in the state of Western Australia, the Blackwood Valley is home to 19 wine producers and 50 vineyards.
The unique flavours of the area are characterized with earthy undertones in the Cabernet and Shiraz and golden honey flavours in the white wine varieties
The Blackwood Valley enjoys a Mediterranean style climate with reliable rains during winter and early spring followed by an ideal hot and dry, fruit ripening summer.
The Dickinson Estate vineyard was established in 1994. Prior to the vineyard being planted, the property had a long history of being a sheep and cattle farm. This livestock grazing history has provided very rich soil with a natural fertilizer base. The vines thrive on the natural nutrients in the rich soils. During the non-fruit bearing period, the farm sheep graze amongst the vines, reducing the weed burden while at the same time, re-fertilizing the soils.
