Who Are We?

Tammar Gully Wines - Trevor and Mary Dickinson

Following a 20 year career with the Australian Navy, Trevor and Mary purchased a farm in Boyup Brook in 1987 (strewth! That seems like about 33 years ago!).  In 1994, having had 7 years of successfully breeding sheep and cattle, we decided to plant wine grapes.  For the first 14 years, we produced grapes for other prominent wine producers such as Goundrey Wines, Alkoomi and Wolf Blass.  Then came the GFC and demand for our fruit fell away so in 2010 we decided to produce our own wines and the Tammar Gully label was born.  “The rest is history” as they say.

Prior to our arrival, the property had a long livestock grazing history which has created soils that are rich in organic matter and there are still sheep grazing through the vineyard during the non-fruit bearing months of the year.

The property is 200 acres, of which 21.5 acres are under vine with plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
