VINEYARD

All the fruit that goes into the making of House of Cards wine comes from their 12 hectare vineyard planted in 1997 located in the Yallingup sub-region of the Margaret River Wine Region. The varietals grown on the House of Cards single vineyard site include cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, merlot, malbec, petit verdot, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. They already grow three different clones of cabernet sauvignon and have plans to keep experimenting with clones of different varieties in the future. The vineyard is dry grown and cropped at low levels to increase concentration of fruit flavours. The orientation of the vines, East to West allows for longer hang time resulting in grapes with greater flavours.

The House of Cards vineyard is currently in the process of becoming certified organic. Organic practices are utilised to improve soil health and vine nutrition and to help create a healthy, sustainable ecology.
