The land that Juniper Estate occupies was originally part of the Group Settlement Scheme, and was known as Sussex Location 2738. In the 1920's, Western Australia’s Premier, Sir James Mitchell, was the engineer of this scheme which sought to reduce Western Australia’s reliance on imported dairy products by establishing a number of dairy farms in the southwest. Groups of twenty families - which were usually from poor backgrounds - were given 160 acres each, conditional on clearing it and establishing a dairy farm. The scheme was described as ‘a glorious failure’ and was abolished in 1930, mainly due to the hardship that it inflicted upon the participants. Nevertheless it was instrumental in establishing a number of townships as well as a fledgling dairy industry. By the end of WW2 a decent sized area (more than one 100-acre lot) around the Estate was in the possession of the Honeywood family and Richard Juniper, an Englishman, married their daughter Linda. He became the registered proprietor Read more »

  • Cotes du Rhone. It’s a surprisingly well known wine in a world where the wines people are generally more comfortable with come with varietal designations as opposed to regional ones. Sure there are Chianti, and Bordeaux, but how many other regional appellations are most people familiar with? And is there any other that is exclusively focused on ... Read More

  • After a brief introduction to the the state of Washington this past Monday I reported on my  visits to wineries in Walla Walla on Tuesday. Today I am reporting on visits both in Prosser, which lies roughly between Walla Walla and Seattle in the Yakima Valley as well as to wineries located basically within Seattle’s metropolitan footprint. As I’v... Read More

  • Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More

  • It’s a great thing when things just come together. Earlier this year I had planned a trip to California to do some tasting but it had to be postponed. When I went to reschedule I noticed a thread in the Snooth Forum  that was looking for people to join in a West Coast Pinot Noir Throw Down. I wasn’t sure what exactly that entailed but I am alway...

  • As I sit here trying to come to some conclusion it occurs to me that perhaps I am going about this all wrong. I amafter all a wine snob. Yes, it’s true, I am biased and I know it. I am first and foremost a red wine drinkerso when I think of the best regions my thoughts automatically run towards things like Nebbiolo and Piedmont, PinotNoir and Bu... Read More

I want to thank everyone who made it possible with a tip of the hat to Mr and Mrs Foxy!Great hospitality, food, and friends, and we also had some wine. I didn't include the Patz and Hall wines in my WOTN voting since they had so many entrants in the line-up, but the Burnside and Moses-Hall were both excellent and the Sonoma Coa...

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • Recently I was pleasantly surprised by a visit to Lodi, California. Long the source of well-priced, consumer friendly wines, not to mention the boost they give many of our favorite national brands, Lodi continues to work mostly off the center stage of wine in the USA. There are many reasons for this of course, from consumer preferences to the gr... Read More

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More
