GROWERS FIRST AND MAKERS SECOND
Great wine is made
in the vineyard
At Voyager Estate the story behind every bottle begins in this very special part of the world we call home—Margaret River. Our little pocket, Stevens Valley in the south of the region, is a place where idyllic microclimate, ancient geology and coastal influence converge to create our distinctive Voyager Estate style.
All our grapes are grown in the gravel and loam soils of our own vineyard. Each block has its own distinct personality which we encourage to flourish through our natural approach to viticulture.
Our journey to organics
While we began conversion in 2017 and our first vineyards were certified in 2020, 2023 marks the official completion of the organic certification process. We are proud to say the entire Voyager Estate vineyard is now officially Australian Certified Organic.
Organic farming puts nature back in charge. Sure, it requires dedication, hard work and risk taking, but it's the right thing to do. For our owner Alex, that’s the key driver—to consciously build a healthy and resilient vineyard, and leave the land in a better condition than we found it.
Voyager’s journey to organics began many years ago. Our vineyards have been farmed sustainably for decades, so our conversion to organic farming and pathway to certification was just a natural next step. In 2004, the team began trialling an organic farming approach to our heritage Old Block Cabernet, and our organics journey was formalised over a ‘kicking the dirt’ chat with Alex Burt and Vineyard Manager Glen Ryan in 2016.
