Sitting beside the tranquil Wilyabrup Brook, the Juniper cellar door is surrounded by cottage gardens and green lawns. The staff are warm and engaging and can discuss their wines with you at whatever level that you are comfortable with. Juniper's Museum room offers carefully cellared wines going back to the turn of the century, which are available for purchase by the bottle or by the glass to be enjoyed in an armchair by the wood-burning fire in the cooler months, or out at one of the picnic tables on the lawns under the shade of the trees when it’s warm.
Juniper is one of the original Margaret River vineyards nestled in the picturesque Wilyabrup valley. It's neighbours are Vasse Felix and Cullen to the north and Howard Park to the south-east. The vineyard was planted in 1973 when it was known as Wright's, and was one of the pioneering Margaret River wine producers, along with Vasse Felix, Cape Mentelle, Cullen, Moss Wood and Woodlands, and is dry-grown (unirrigated) to this day.

The present vineyard block was created through subdivision by the well-known Western Australian artist family, the Junipers, after whom it is now named. It’s pretty much a hands-on operation – the vines are hand-pruned and hand-picked, and the wine hand-made.  Juniper was established by the late Roger Hill and his wife Gillian Anderson with the intention of producing wines that rank among the best to come from Wilyabrup and beyond.

A small, intimate winery where generous tastings are offered. Good, honest descriptors given on each individual wine. Rob was friendly, personable and knowledgeable. 10/10 would recommend. Lots of laughs had by all. It was a safe space! A perfect way to start our day of wine tastings. We all purchased a bottle of red. Rob also happy to take multiple photos of our experience. He will take multiple rather than just the one. Overall, such a moment.

Rarely do you find a winery that does so many varieties and perfects them all. Fantastic cellar door service, lovely gardens and space for kids to run, amazing wine. I've been here often, and never disappointed.

Great wine and tasting! Flowers in the garden are very pretty. Easy to miss being across the road from vasse Felix but worth the trip over the road!

We popped in for a last minute tasting today and will forever be thankful to our host who made the time for us despite our late arrival. He was a great chat and every single wine we tried was divine. We've visited a lot of wineries around the South West and I have to say that Juniper bas been one of my favourites.
