Since then, the harvests have been fashioned to create expressive wines that are true representations of the Great Southern wine region. The premium fruit is treated with care throughout the winemaking process, each step focusing on allowing the inherit varietal and regional characteristics to shine through. Hand picked, estate grown fruit is the focus of Willoughby Park wines.
