Perth Hills Wine Region
The Perth Hills wine region is characterised by its hilly terrain, forested valleys and majestic scenery and covers a long narrow area of 110 kilometres running north to south just inland from Perth. The region's Mediterranean climate is influenced by the Darling Scarp mountain ranges which help create a diverse range of microclimates. While viticulture has been practised in the region for more than a century, the Perth Hills was officially gazetted as a winegrowing region in 1999. It is now renowned for producing quality, fruit-driven wines and alternative styles.
To protect Millbrook’s pristine environment, modern and sustainable viticultural practices are utilised. Vines are planted on undulating slopes to optimise drainage and control growth, with the emphasis being on fruit quality, rather than yield.
The Millbrook Gardens
In addition to the vines lining the steep slopes, the Millbrook property incorporates an active orchard, an olive grove and a one-acre garden featuring over 100 varieties of heirloom vegetables, which are hand-picked daily and feature prominently in the Millbrook restaurant’s magnificent seasonal menu.
We don't buy any fruit or veg!
Everything that is cooked in the kitchen has been grown from our garden, orchard and olive grove.
