Sandalford Wines

The establishment of Sandalford Wines in 1840 coincided with both the first European settlement at the Colony of Perth and birth of Western Australia's world famous wine industry.

Located on the banks of the Swan River and founded in 1840, Sandalford Wines is a must visit winery, positioned at the forefront of wine tourism in Australia. In 2017, we are extremely proud to be one of the country's oldest and largest family owned winemakers. Proprietors Peter and Debra Prendiville acquired Sandalford in 1991, together they formulated a plan to revitalise the 151 year old icon brand, spending millions of dollars redeveloping the company’s facilities. Their vision of ‘a wine company that not only produces wines of excellence but also has the perfect synergy of wine combined with tourism’, has now come to fruition.

The key objective for Sandalford Wines is to produce outstanding premium and super premium wines. At the same time, Sandalford has a vision to provide local, interstate and overseas tourists to Perth with a ‘must’ visit destination to Sandalford’s Swan Valley operations, and to provide them with a truly world class wine tourism, education and hospitality experience.

With the support of an enthusiastic team of professionals, recognising in particular the dedication and commitment to achieve overall vision, Sandalford plays a key role in the future of Australia’s wine and wine tourism industries. No other winery within the region carries such a wide range of services and facilities to enhance visitor experience, like Sandalford:
- A multi-lingual winery tour on suspended walkways through production areas designed to provide the visitor with a unique opportunity to view behind the scenes of a working winery
- Al fresco dining under the vines in Gold Plate Award winning restaurant
- Expansive indoor and outdoor function and wedding facilities
- World class outdoor concert events
- Wine education and appreciation classes
- Gift emporium
- Exclusive Wineclub member rewards

Part of Sandalford’s vision is to be the BEST wine tourism operation with an education focus in Australia.
