The Fuddling Cup vineyard began on a small pocket of land where Colin and Gail Higgins planted premium Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Tuart sandy loam soil of Geographe, South Western Australia near Capel within sight of the ocean in 2000. Although our plantings were new, award winning Cabernet has been grown in the vicinity for almost 30 years.
The Geographe Region is fast developing into one of Western Australia's most exciting wine regions. From the pristine shores of Geographe Bay in the Indian Ocean, it stretches across a wide area of coastal plain and rolling hills of the Darling Scarpe from Harvey, south to Busselton and inland to Donnybrook and Collie.
The goal to be a small, integrated boutique wine business making less than 1000 cases of very high quality Cabernet Sauvignon 'from vine to the glass' has been achieved with the very first vintage attracting critical acclaim and each vintage building on that success. First class viticulture and winemaking practices are employed throughout.
