Plantagenet Location & History
It was in 1968, by a stroke of serendipity that English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenets, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire. He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, followed by Riesling three years later.
Plantagenet Wines is located in the Porongurup sub region of WA’s Great Southern. It lies south of the Stirling Ranges that are one of the few places in Western Australia where snow sometimes falls.
