Rosily Vineyard

Rosily Vineyard is dedicated to making wines of excellence, that truly reflect the unique Margaret River environment from which they are derived.

Established in 1994, we have been producing wines of integrity from our single vineyard for more than a quarter of a century.
We believe in respecting our environment, and working with it in a sustainable way to produce superior quality fruit from healthy, well balanced vines. We believe in working with this fruit through the winemaking process, so that the varietal and regional characteristics are there to be enjoyed in each and every bottle.
All of our fruit is harvested from our own vines, and all of our wines are produced in our own winery.

The Rosily Vineyard is found in the heart of the Wilyabrup sub region, which is close to the coast and of a central to slightly northern latitude within the Margaret River wine region. All of Rosily’s wines are produced using fruit grown on the 12ha vineyard, which is planted on specifically chosen parcels of land within the 32ha Willyabrup property.

From the strong and structured Cabernet grown in the challenging top-of-hill gravels, to the full and fruity Semillon grown in the rich alluvial soils close to a gentle brook; our grapes are grown on unique parcels of soil, in a unique part of the world – and this is reflected in the quality of our wines.

The first vines were propergated at Rosily in 1994, using cuttings from the nearby Moss Wood vineyard. The rootlings were then planted out into the vineyard in 1995 and 1996 (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc), and 1997 (Grenache, Merlot and Cabernet Franc). Later on in 2001 a small block of Petit Verdot was added, and then some extra Semillon in 2009.

Our minimal input philosophy is backed up with our commitment to maintaining our vineyard’s organic certification, which was acheived in 2017 after two years of trials and three years of conversion.
The importance of the health of our vineyard is paramount to the quality of our wines, and sustainability of our vineyard is also recognised as being vital. We believe that the process of organic certification for our vineyard is testament to our commitment to looking after the land.
Our vine rows all run east-west, and are 3.3m apart with vines planted every 1.8m along the row. This gives us a total of almost 21,000 vines – of 12 different varieties.
