Barton Jones Wines
The Donnybrook winery with dry-grown vines.
August 14, 2020
The patch of land that Barton Jones Wines calls home has only been producing its own wines since 2007, but that doesn't mean that this specific spot is a newcomer to the vino game. Located just outside Donnybrook in the Geographe wine region, the site has boasted its own dry-grown vines since back in 1978. Originally, the grapes were supplied to other winemakers — until Barton Jones Wines was formed.
Now under its second set of owners, this brand favours two styles: wooded wines, which form its premium range, and fruity tipples with a more restrained use of oak, as seen in its cellar series. Variety-wise, that means you can say cheers to semillon, cabernet sauvignon, chenin blanc, shiraz and, soon, rosé as well.
Barton Jones Wines' cellar door does tastings and food on weekends, all in a striking building constructed from straw bales, plus upcycled and recycled materials.
