Hawker Ridge Wines is a family owned and operated vineyard, situated in Kendenup, Western Australia in the Mt Barker wine district. The vineyard is a few quiet kilometres from the Kendenup township, 70 kilometres north of Albany and the Southern Ocean, and 20 kilometres from Mt Barker. The climate is cool and dry with warm summers.

From the vineyard there are sensational views north-east to the Stirling Ranges and south-east to the Porongurups. Gentle sea breezes blow from the south-west and south-east, and on summer evenings cool air flows down from the slopes of the Stirling Ranges. The vineyard sits atop a local high point on well-drained gravelly loam, rich in lime and free of salt. It is an ideal location for growing cool climate Shiraz and Riesling.

We first planted vines of Shiraz and Riesling at Hawker Ridge in September 2001, and the first vintages were harvested in 2004. Our wines are made in Mt Barker by acclaimed winemaker Mike Garland. This blog contains information and occasional updates about our wines.
