Rickety Gate Estate Cellar Door
On the 1st January 2000 the Hubbard Family exchanged the hustle and bustle of the city for the pristine environment of Denmark. Their dream was to produce premium wines and to accomplish this they adopted a "No Compromises" ethos.
By late 2000 they had completed planting the vineyard to Merlot, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Hubbard's believe there is middle ground between organic and contemporary viticultural practices and have proven that by combining both disciplines sensibly, they can produce stunning fruit. Having planted the Estate Vineyard they then constructed an Estate Winery in which their winemaker Mr. John Wade has complete control throughout the winemaking process. James Halliday quotes John Wade as being "arguably the most experienced Winemaker in Western Australia".
