BACCHUS Family Wine is a small wine company based in the Margaret River region of Western Australia, producing only two wines, a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, from small patches of vines in the one vineyard. They also produce a Chardonnay.
The Malbec blend is made only in very small quantities and it’s availability is extremely limited, the first vintage of BACCHUS wine was in 2014.
I first met Jake and Bec in May 2021, two of the most lovely people I’ve ever met and it was clear from the beginning, Jake’s passion for winemaking.
Jake’s surname BACCHUS, means Greek god of wine, so it is fitting he chose a career in winemaking. He’s been making wine since 2002 and it’s taken him across the globe to Italy, the United States, Canada, France, and New Zealand, working in the best cellars and chateaux.
After spending a decade making wine for others, he’s finally been able to make wine exactly as he wants, utilising his experience to craft the best he can, from the dry grown grapes that are carefully hand selected, from a single estate not too far from Cowaramup in the Margaret River region of WA.
The winemaking is very minimalistic and intervened only when necessary, giving these varieties the best chance to show their potential. Get it right in the vineyard and the rest of the process is more custodial than manipulative.
Hand picked, hand made, hand bottled and packaged by the Bacchus family.
Make sure you hop on the BACCHUS train.
