Hayshed Hill History
The first vines were planted on the Hayshed Hill vineyard in 1973, with the property going under the name of 'Sussex Vale' until 1989 when it was bought by Barry & Liz Morrison. The Morrison’s turned what was a rundown form into a serious wine producer, expanding the plantings to some 18 ha of vines.
As the old hay shed from the dairy days was a local landmark, the Morrison’s used this to create the new name for the property, Hay Shed Hill. Tools found in the hay shed provided them with the inspiration for Hay Shed’s sister label – Pitchfork Wines.
In 1992 the winery was redesigned by a local architect to complement the existing house and hay shed whilst still retaining the feel of the original dairy farm the property once was.
The Morrison’s owned the property for 11 years until 2000 when they sold to a wine investment group based in New South Wales. The next 6 years were a rocky one for Hayshed Hill as it suffered under the vagaries of wine investment management until 2006 when it was bought back by Michael Kerrigan.
Hayshed Hill Vineyard
Ideally situated on the deep red gravelly loams of Wilyabrup (the soil type itself is often referred to as 'Wilyabrup loam') the vineyard itself is north facing and free draining, with the varieties planted rather classical for Margaret River (even the Pinot, which is bizarrely still planted throughout Margaret River, even if it makes some less than classical Pinot styles).
Cabernet Sauvignon 4.7ha
Cabernet Franc 0.6ha
Petit Verdot 0.3ha
Pinot Noir 1.1ha
Sauvignon Blanc 3.6ha
