Fonty’s Pool Wines is located in the Pemberton region of south west Western Australia approximately 335kms south of Western Australia’s capital city Perth. The property includes the vineyards, winery and cellar door, and is adjacent to the famous landmark affectionately known as ‘Fonty’s Pool’. The name comes from an early pioneer of the region, Archie Fontanini. In 1907 he began farming on the land where the vines now grow. Mr Fontanini built a large dam to irrigate his farm, and this dam became a place where locals and tourists alike would come to swim. Fonty’s Pool Wines is set amongst an idyllic landscape of lush karri and jarrah forests on Seven Day Road, which was cleared by original pioneers of the region to join the farm to the town of Manjimup. Fonty’s Pool Wines was first established in 1989 with further vineyards planted in 1991, 1996 and 1998 to reach the current total of 110 hectares. The varieties produced are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malbec, Marsanne, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Shiraz, Verdelho and Viognier. The total property dimension is 330 hectares and besides grapes, produces avocados (4,000 trees) and truffles. There is also a water storage lake on the property that is over a kilometre long and holds over one million litres of water. Fonty’s Pool Wines has become a leading wine producer in the cool-climate region of Pemberton. Premium sites within the vineyard have been selected to create wines that truly express their regional characteristics. The total area under vine is 110 ha and all wines are 100% estate grown. An emerging, contemporary winery producing consistently exceptional wines at an affordable price, Fonty’s Pool Wines is crafting a unique signature to make it one of Western Australia’s most distinctive wineries. Fonty’s Pool Wines are members of: :: Winemakers Federation of Australia; :: Wine Industry Association of Western Australia; and :: Pemberton Wine Region Association Fonty’s Pool Wines has two equally exceptional sister companies who share the same commitment to produce premium wines and malts which are truly reflective of their regional origins.
