More than a winery
Whilst wine is at he heart of our business, we are in a continual process of extending the services, facilities and activities at Basils Farm.
As you enter Basils Farm you will see our recently planted rows of shiraz, chardonnay and pinot noir varietals. Added to our two current sites (the Dam Block 1996 and Olive Block 2013) it will increase our vineyards to over 10 acres of production.
Our cellar door offers wine tastings. And the opportunity to sample artisan produce as well as the full range of Basils Farm wines.
Recent developments include the refurbishment of Basils Café to allow seating for 60 with the comfort of an open fire in winter and air-conditioning in summer. On the lawn area new seating and umbrellas complement the manicured gardens and allow visitors to absorb the breathtaking views across Swan Bay. Even the kids can have fun in our large sandpit and with the toys.
Adopting sustainable farming practices are a significant part of the vision for the property. In addition to growing the extensive, organic edible garden, future plans include the expansion of our market gardens and orchards, adding more chickens and introducing baby doll sheep to the property.
Sustainability, local producers, seasonal produce and artisan wine provide the foundation for educational workshops and wine and food events and dinners which are held regularly throughout the year. We also offer corporate and private group wine tastings, which can be tailored to suit any requirement.
Basils Farm – discover and enjoy.
