One with the surname Byron, the other with the given name Harold; two gentlemen, really, in the true sense of the word, but with a secret admiration for the 19th century English poet who in his day was regarded as ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know.’

Since the first significant planting of vines in the early 1960s, the south west of Western Australia has grown to become regarded as potentially one of the great wine-producing areas of the world.

The principal sources of grapes for Byron & Harold are the established regions of Margaret River and Great Southern. They both enjoy growing conditions similar to that of Bordeaux, and are internationally regarded as premium cool climate destinations that produce elegant, distinctive wines with finesse and power.

Paul Byron and Harold (Ralph) Dunning have joined forces with winemaker  Kate Morgan to seamlessly deliver the highest quality wines and service to the wine drinker of today.

The brand was established in 2012 to produce a focused range of high quality, provenance based table wines. In only the second full year of winemaking, much respected wine reviewer James Halliday awarded Byron & Harold a ***** 5 Star Rating for 2015 and named them as one of his Top 10 New Wineries for 2015. Since then, Halliday renewed the status as a 5 Star winery for 2016, and upgraded the rating to a 5 Red Star winery for 2017.

Although Western Australia contributes less than 7 per cent of the country’s wine grapes, it represents over 25 per cent of today’s Australian premium wine market.
