Myattsfield Vineyard – Bickley Valley

Myattsfield Vineyard was the first place in the Bickley Valley that Chief Explorer Adam visited on his first trip up into the Perth Hills, and the vineyard was his inspiration for Explore Tours Perth’s day tours to the Bickley Valley.

Wine, Scenery and People

That first visit was enough to convince Adam that the Bickley Valley was perfect for Day Tours as the wine, scenery and people that run Myattsfield Vineyard are all pretty special. You feel like you are a million miles away from the City and everyone is so friendly, from Emma in the Cellar door to Finch the dog who is always around to say hello.

History

Myattsfield was the name of the family farm back in London around 1800 and was run by Joseph Myatt. You can still find Myatts Field park today in a suburb of London called Camberwell.

Myattsfield of the Bickley Valley

Fast forward to the present day and the Myattsfield name has been transported out to the Bickley Valley where Rachael and Josh Davenport (wine makers and owners) have used the name for their fantastic family vineyard, with some of the grapes grown on land that used to hold Josh’s Father’s orchard.

Cellar Door Views

The land where the cellar door and wine production facilities stand was purchased in 1999. From the tables outside the cellar door you can sit down and enjoy the amazing views of the vines and valley, whilst sipping on a glass of wine from Myattsfield’s range.

The range itself is surprisingly large for a vineyard tucked up in the Perth Hills and includes the well known favourites such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Shiraz. However, it is the addition of less well known varities such as Durif and Mourverde that will delight those who like to try new varities.

Wine Flights

There is only one thing better than enjoying a glass of Myattsfield wine whilst enjoying the views, and that is enjoying a selection of gorgeous cheeses and Myattsifled’s wines whilst enjoying the views. Myattsfield now serve ‘Wine Flights’ where you are given three generous samples of their wines along with three different cheeses that have been matched with those particular wines. The one pictured below is their sparkling Wine Flight.
