Wyjup Vineyard

Wyjup was the second vineyard to be established planted in 1971. Wyjup is the aboriginal name for the area which is some 40 km south west of Mount Barker. Originally one of 42 War Service Land Settlement Farms it had been used solely for sheep and cattle grazing until 1970. The vineyard is still the backbone of the Plantagenet Range with consistently exceptional fruit being produced each vintage.
