The cool-climate winegrowers who dot the vast expanse of Western Australia produce a miniscule five percent of the nation’s wine — but that wine’s assured elegance and exceptional quality far outstrip the regional output, winning an astonishing 30 percent of the country’s awards. Carved from a colossal 1,700-acre family farm in Mount Barker, 3drops has established itself as one of the preeminent wineries in the Great Southern Wine Region. The Great Southern Chardonnay, crafted from night-harvested fruit, is a fresh, voluminous cascade of peach and toasted cashew, shot through with sparkling veins of grapefruit and nectarine.
A deliberately understated wine directing all traffic to its varietal fruit, white stone fruit/grapefruit/apple flavours driving the immensely long palate. Purity in a sip.

The holy trinity of wine, water, and olive oil
In the untouched countryside of Western Australia, four hours from the territory’s capital city of Perth, the old town of Mount Barker sits framed by the unbridled rainbow beauty of native wildflowers and the twin national parks of Stirling and Porongurup. Here, in the birthplace of the Great Southern Wine Region, you’ll find an expansive 1,700-acre property home to the family farm where visionary Joanne Bradbury passed her youth. This is 3drops, where vines prosper side-by-side with luxuriant olive trees of Greek, Italian, and Spanish origin, all nourished by an irrigation system sourced from the property’s wetland.
