Where character runs deep within our vines.
In a valley home to 50 wineries and 110 vineyards, rows of trees protect 20 acres of harvesting land. The first planting took place in 1968 by two brothers. They made it a home. They hung their family crest on a farmhouse wall … and they gave the land their namesake, Fergusson.
In the following years the vineyard saw its first commercial vintage, a communal restaurant, the birth of their children, who along with their mother, would later become the keepers of the land. And then, the end of an era – the entire estate burned in the fire of 1989.
Not a single vine was harmed.
With every end comes the dawn of a new day. The following year saw the bearing of a record vintage. The following decades saw the ebbs and flows of winemaking, and farming, and cooking, and community, and family life. It’s a rich history that continues to grow through the preservation and transformation of the land and the people who occupy it.
Today, half a century later, the family continue to share their passion for the drop through a vineyard experience that sees you eating, drinking and escaping into a natural and relaxed setting.
Celebrating Fifty Years 1968-2018
Marked by the countryside, our farmland is a backdrop for the classic timber fa?ade of a chapel steeped in history and ceremonial wisdom. A few steps away, our Secret Garden waits for saps to rise, buds to swell and burst, and the smell of a new season to settle in.
Nestled in its own private rolling valley with surrounding vines The Forever Chapel has a charming, rustic exterior, vintage pews that mark a moment in time, and a spectacular 360-degree view of the vineyard. From unusual love stories to fairytale romances and all the odes to love in between, our beloved vines have witnessed it all.
Our space is for all kinds of weddings, from the classically beautiful, to the whimsical and creative, the rustic, vintage or farm style bash. The setting is lyrical, the food is sophisticated yet wholesome, and always made with love … specially created to match a stunning wine list and the sound of a hundred clinking glasses.
