Major changes have taken place at Island Brook Estate since December 2011 when it was leased from the Zorzi family. It is now operated by Evan and Vanessa Haywood. It draws on 7ha of estate vineyards planted to semillon, chardonnay, verdelho, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Luxurious chalet accommodation continues to be available, and the quality of the wines has been immeasurably improved. -JAMES HALLIDAY
Island Brook Estate is a premium boutique wine producer in the heart of the Margaret River wine region. Home to seven hectares of vines, one old red truck, a heap of chooks, ducks, geese, and the Haywood family.
