Sandalford has made wines for over 150 years, changing their wines and vinification in many ways. Winemaking however has been around for thousands of years, so in some sense little has changed!
Since the early 1990s Sandalford Wines returned to family ownership with Peter and Debra Prendiville at the helm. Their significant changes to the winery over the past ten years reflect modern practices yet maintain the tradition and mystique behind the winemaking process. For example, while we use the latest equipment for processing fruit during vintage, Sandalford maintains small batch processing of all fruit and uses only top quality French and American Oak barrels.
Today the winery oversees two prestigious vineyards, one in the famed Wilyabrup region of Margaret River and the other in the Swan Valley.
Sandalford Wines now essentially produce five ranges of wine. The entry point wines are the Element and Winemakers ranges. Next the Margaret River Range caters for the mid tier price bracket and is made from de-classified fruit originally set aside for the Estate Reserve and super premium Prendiville Reserve collections which both sit above it in the Sandalford portfolio pyramid. All wines are made by the same exacting standards and attention to detail.
