Talisman Wines is a small family run winery based in the Ferguson Valley in the Geographe Wine Region of Western Australia. The Robinson’s founded the label in 2009 after a number of years selling their prized fruit to larger, more commercial producers. The story of Talisman is one of passion, drive and commitment to producing interesting boutique wines of exceptional quality.
The Talisman vineyard is situated high in the hills of the Ferguson Valley. The unique site is surrounded by the Wellington National Park and was initially purchased for is extreme beauty as a weekend escape for the family. Years later in 1999 with the help of local viticulturist, Victor Bertola, the vineyard was planted. Inspired by their favourite wines, select varieties were matched with the most suitable slopes and soil types on the property. The vineyard now produces Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet, Merlot and the alternative varieties Malbec and Zinfandel. The superb quality fruit is complimented by the delicate winemaking style of Peter Stanlake who works his magic to create Talisman’s award winning wines.
