Pretsel Vineyard was established in 1997 by Andrew and Bettina Pretsel. Particularly interested in the influence of terroir on the quality of wine, great effort was taken to find the perfect place to grow perfect wine grapes. Their search led them to a beautiful property north-west of Manjimup, opposite the Yanmah State Forest and surrounded on all other sides by picturesque farms. In a unique micro-climate created by the forest and gently undulating north-facing slopes with a generous supply of pristine water from the Ephraim Brook, the site was a text-book perfect discovery for growing winegrapes and many other gourmet products. Pretsel Vineyard has produced pleasing results for the last decade with all the wine grapes being blended into wine for an iconic Margaret River Winery.
