The name ‘Alkoomi’ is derived from a local Aboriginal dialect, meaning ‘a place we chose’. Similarly, the Alkoomi logo symbolizes an Australian grass tree found in the Frankland River area.
According to Jeremy Oliver, Alkoomi Wines is “one of the oldest and most important vineyards of the Great Southern region”.
However, Alkoomi wasn’t always a winery. During the late 1960’s Merv and July Lange were managing a large sheep property when Australian wool prices crashed. So in 1971, in a place “they” chose, in a corner of their property, they planted one hectare of Cabernet Sauvignon. Riesling, Sauvignon, Shiraz and Malbec soon followed and the first of Alkoomi’s wines were released in 1976.
Alkoomi Wines Location
Located in the Frankland River wine region, Alkoomi Wines is one of the largest family-owned wine producers within Western Australia.
Located just 80-kilometers inland from the Southern Ocean the Alkoomi property receives good winter rains and cool summer sea breezes not dissimilar to that of Bordeuax’s wine region.
