‘Fairbrossen’ is the winery and vineyards of the Bowness family. Our family name and origins are from the Lakes District in the North-West of England where healthy-living and big appetites are common. [ Fair – Broh – sen ] Adj: “Full to Bursting” A phrase often expressed at the completion of a very satisfying meal.
The winery is located in the Bickley/Carmel Valley in the beautiful Perth Hills where we have lived for over 35 years. Our family also has another small vineyard holding in the Wilyabrup district of Margaret River which we established in 1994.
We are proudly first generation winemakers, and started this journey with a passion for hospitality and good times with family and friends. Our environmental principles, boutique, artisanal winemaking and a desire to push the boundaries of convention, drives us and we hope you’ll come along for the ride.
Side Project Wines is a non-conventional approach to our wine making. It gives us the opportunity of playing with varieties we love to drink, and producing wines that are fun, out-of-the-box and can be enjoyed with good food.
