In December 2005, the Mathews family acquired the long-established Hopelands Vineyard located in the pristine Margaret River wine region. During 2006 we decided to completely rework the vineyard, requiring many hours of physical labour. The vines were cut right back and retrellised resulting in a consequent reduction in yield and significant rise in wine quality. The After Hours harvest is around 25 tonnes of fruit each year from which we make approximately 1500 cases of premium wine. The vineyard consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (2.6 ha), Shiraz (1.6 ha), Merlot, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay (1.1 ha each). The majority of our wine is sold through cellar door, online and into the domestic market. After Hours is looking to explore the international market in the near future.
