Burnside Organic Farm has one of the smallest vineyards and wineries in the world-renowned Margaret River Wine Region. We strive for quality over quantity.
The vineyards are hand managed under our Biodynamic certification and after harvest the grapes are made into wine in our onsite winery.
Winemaking is done naturally with no added yeasts or chemicals or other interventions. We produce a range of styles, including preservative-free.
Jamie manages the vineyards and Lara manages the winemaking. Our youngest son, Dan is currently studying to be a winemaker.
Our Zinfandel vineyard was planted in 2001. Zinfandel (also known as Primitivo in Italy) is a full bodied red wine with prominent red berry fruit characteristics. It is an excellent food wine, complementing everything from charcuterie, cheese and chocolate.
Vermentino is an emerging white variety tasting of pear, apple, lemon, with a touch of saltiness on the palate. Delicious summer drinking and well suited to pairing with seafood.
We often make a Pet Nat sparkling wine with the Vermentino, as it particularly suits this style of winemaking.
Our youngest son, Dan, has planted a vineyard on the property with Malbec and Chardonnay grape varieties. We look forward to adding wines from his efforts into our range within a few years.
