Discover the Swan Valley, WA's oldest wine growing region right on Perth's doorstep. Located approximately 25 minutes from Perth city.
This property had been in the hands of the Roe family since the 1840’s. It is the desire of Mandoon Estate to preserve the cultural and historical heritage of this property as well as demonstrate the full potential of the Swan Valley as a significant Wine producing region.
The Mandoon Estate winery was established in 2010 in the Swan Valley. Their focus is on producing a boutique range of premium wines from well-preserved low-yielding single vineyard sites, from the Swan Valley and other prominent Western Australian regions, using traditional methods that clearly demonstrate both varietal and regional characteristics.
