Great Southern

While it’s fair to say that tourism experiences in the Great Southern have improved dramatically in the last decade, distance still inhibits visitors. The producers tend to be small, family-owned concerns, now with a more professional approach to showcasing wine at cellar doors reflected in brighter rooms with plenty of natural light and quality glassware for tasting.

Singlefile

Star Cellar Door

Owned and operated by the Snowden and Corbett families, Singlefile remains the outstanding cellar door in the Great Southern.

It is purpose-built in timber and brick with attention to detail enhancing the wine tasting experience. Enjoy the ambience of the well-lit tasting room or relax at the tables set on the immaculate lawns al fresco using top quality Riedel stemware.

Singlefile sources its outstanding portfolio from all parts of the Great Southern (and couldn’t resist a couple from Pemberton). There are regional wines, an impressive range of single vineyard (and therefore subregional) varieties and some limited release classics.

Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and relax at Singlefile. Coco d’Vino offers something different: a tasting of four wines matched with chocolate. Hour-long private tastings include a tour of the grounds and the vineyard, some back vintages of their wines, and a barrel tasting. PETER FORRESTAL
