Forester Estate Winery

Some winemakers start out with huge plans, aiming to become one of the industry's biggest names, but not Forester Estate Winery. That just isn't the Yallingup outfit's style. Although it calls a sizeable parcel of the Margaret River region home — with its site lined by trees, as its moniker intimates — it'd rather have the time, space and focus to be as meticulous as possible.

Part of that detail-oriented approach is highlighting the specific flavour and character of grapes grown in the area, with Forester Estate sourcing its fruit from around 14 vineyards primarily located in the region's northern third. Accordingly, that's what you'll taste when you sip its chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, semillon and a little blend of the latter two called Little Sweetie.

As well as selling its wines online, Forester Estate offers group tastings — but only by appointment.
