Regular contributor, Naomi introduces us to Estate 807 in WA’s Great Southern region…

You know when you recognise a brand that you haven’t seen for a couple of years and you get that sense of nostalgia. Well, I got that at my first stop of the day at Estate 807.

Actually, I made sure to drop into the cellar door, because I absolutely LOVED their 2012 Riesling from Raising Riesling at the Perth Royal Yacht Club back in 2016.

I was pretty keen to get another taste of their Riesling and to grab a bottle or two while I was there. Continue reading
