Described by James Halliday as ”one of the most experienced winemakers in Western Australia”, Tony “Snake” Davis has over 25 years’ winemaking experience across the renowned wine regions of Oregon, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Tasmania, South Australia and of course, Western Australia. Redmond “Herring” Sweeny is an accountant by trade and a sports-mad, wine-addict by passion. Staunchly Western Australian and proud of it. Redmond is an experienced marketing professional with years of sales and distribution under his belt. In 2011 these two chaps met, collaborated and Snake and Herring The Wine Odyssey was created.
At the heart of the business are well-founded partnerships with talented growers. Snake and Herring work collaboratively with their growers to ensure that sustainability and quality are expertly balanced.

Their wines are an expression of the individual sites and styles and they employ innovative wine making techniques to get the best out of the fruit. Handpicking, whole bunches, small batches, wild fermentation, raw juices and big barrels all work to build wines with texture and complexity. And it hasn’t gone unnoticed. 10 years on with a swag of trophies and gold medals to their name, Snake and Herring now have a Cellar Door on Caves Road in the heart of the Margaret River Wine Region.

We've driven past this Cellar Door on Caves Road without going in and now realise, what a terrible mistake! Knowledgeable, friendly customer service, beautiful grounds AND they make delicious wines too! Duo Tony “Snake” Davis (with over 25 years’ winemaking experience) and Redmond “Herring” Sweeny (a wine connisseur with experience in marketing and sales) met in 2011, collaborated and Snake and Herring The Wine Odyssey was created. Their wines are an expression of the individual styles and music choices, with their wines being named after some classic songs, such as.... Tainted Love (a delicious rose) Perfect Day (a punchy SBS) At First Sight (a tasty Grenache) Cannonball (a full bodied mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot) Just to name a few. Along with their delectable wines they have quite a retail selection too - t-shirts, caps, wooden garden games, jewellery and have a small selection of cheeses etc for a DIY picnic in their shady outdoor area. Why not taste their wines, buy a bottle and enjoy it while playing some outdoor games. Or sit back and enjoy the tranquillity while the kids play in the play area. Dogs welcome here also. #Officially_perth

I have always driven past here without going in and now realise what a mistake I have been making. We were taken here on a wine tour. They have great wine and the seated wine tasting was well done.

Good little wine tasting set up. Welcoming staff, with good varieties of wine. Pay to taste, but comes off purchases.
