Wine­mak­ers set to re­tire

The Advocate (Perth) - - WHAT'S ON -

WINE­MAK­ERS Brian and Heather Hunt from En­topia Wines will re­tire and sell their Swan Val­ley vine­yard after 20 years in the re­gion.

The Hunts, who are now in their mid-70s, bought the prop­erty in Baskerville in 1998 and turned it from a run-down horse prop­erty with no vines and lots of weeds into a bou­tique win­ery which pro­duces around 15 tonnes of grapes at vin­tage.

The win­ery will con­tinue to op­er­ate its cel­lar door on week­ends un­til the end of Au­gust, with wine dis­counted to clear sup­ply.

They said the de­ci­sion had not been made lightly and were deeply grateful for all who vis­ited the win­ery and were part of mak­ing it so suc­cess­ful.
