In 1968, the young and vibrant Tony Smith, planted an experimental vineyard on his Bouverie property in the Great Southern of Western Australia. After many trials and tribulations, including some untimely pruning by a flock of stray sheep, the first grapes were picked in 1974. In 1975, a shed, in the township of Mount Barker, in the heart of the Great Southern, was purchased and the first vintage from the winery was produced.
