Guests to the Quindalup Cellar Door are encouraged to peek behind the scenes into the winery, as well as it's bee-hives, chickens, biodynamic vegie patch, skate ramp, bottling line all amongst the certified organic & biodynamic vines. Whilst tasting alternative Margaret River wine region grape varieties such as Aligoté, Sangiovese & Pinot Grigio & styles like Pétillant Naturel & ‘Orange’ wines which Blind Corner has pioneered in the industry.
Blind Corner is a certified organic & biodynamic vineyard & winery. Owners Ben and Naomi Gould started making wines from their sustainably farmed vineyard 10 years ago. The natural wines & styles they produced in the shed had not been seen in Margaret River before and were polarising for the local industry, earning Ben very few fans amongst the local wineries.
Fast forward 10 years and styles they pioneered, such as Petillant Naturel, are being made by a new wave of producers keen to flex their natural muscles, with a few industry stalwarts dipping their toes in the water too. Ben & Naomi now run 24Ha of certified organic & biodynamic vineyards, built a (legal) winery, are raising two young boys & Pippy the dog, adopted a 30-year-old French son (also known as employee #1, Simon), elected Neko the vineyard cat, wrangled Leroy and his flock of hippie chicks, plus rehomed a million or so of Simon’s bees. All whilst developing their natural ethos of minimising outside influences where possible.
