Riseborough Estate reds are made from grapes estate grown in Gingin to reduce yield and maximise flavours. They are then harvested and sent in the cool of the night to the winemakers at Flying Fish Cove in Margaret River.

Their expertise has resulted in some outstanding wines, which include Gold Medal and Trophy winning Cabernet Sauvignon and Shirazs, as well as some softer but equally delicious styles of Merlot/Cabernet France blends and Grenaches.

Click To EnlargeTo compliment these is a Grenache Rose, also made by Flying Fish Cove, and a sparkling Pinot Chardonnay made by Bella Ridge in the Swan Valley.

Small quantities of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Verdellho are also produced from locally grown fruit.

Prices range from $8 - $14 per bottle for the red and white wines
