Wildberry Farm Vineyard
Wildberry Farm Vineyard, planted in 1997 by some of Flying Fish Cove’s shareholders is the main fruit source of the Flying Fish Cove brand.
The 25-hectare vineyard is located next to our winery on Caves Road in the sub-region of Wilyabrup in Margaret River, Western Australia.
Being only a few kilometres inland from the Indian Ocean, the climatic conditions result in an evening ripening period. This northern end of Margaret River enjoys greater consistency than the southern end, some 40 kilometres away.
The soil type is largely an ancient gravely loam over a mixture of limestone and granite.
Supplementary drip irrigation is provided to maintain vine health and growth.
All vines are trellised utilising the “Vertical Shoot Positioning” system.
The vineyard uses minimal irrigation to ensure that vine health is maintained without excessive vine growth.
