Walsh & Sons
"Walsh & Sons is a small outfit producing wines with big personalities. By using biodynamic methods in our vineyard and natural winemaking techniques we aim to make expressive styles that are fun, youthful and different to the mainstream. Our winemaking relies on the intangible senses of inspiration, intuition and innovation. By using these we seek out a more informed expression of who we are whilst respecting the purity of our natural ingredients.
We have been involved in winemaking at the vineyard and winery level since childhood, having both come from wine and farming families in WA. We have travelled the globe to further our knowledge in places such as France, Spain, Switzerland and the USA. However, our home will always be Margaret River. On a grander scale, we believe Margaret River is still youthful in its wine age.
We also rely upon technique over technology so our wines retain their raw personalities. Much is yet to be discovered in style and soil and so we make wine from grapes and label them on locality as opposed to the generalized sub regions.
All of our fruit comes from our family-owned vineyards in two varying locations, Burnside and Osmington. We much prefer locality names as we feel they better represent the small communities that exist within Margaret River. We are influenced by the people in terrior more so than soil and weather.
Our immediate family, consisting of two sons Roi and Hamish, are what we enjoy the most. Our core wines are mirrored on the personalities of our younger extended family. They sometimes push the boundaries. Please drink our wines with someone special, watch them grow and remember the importance of individuality and self-expression."
