Michael Kerrigan, the acclaimed former winemaker of Madfish and Howard Park, has been working with Bancroft Wines for 25 years. When the vineyards he coveted in Margaret River’s oldest sub-region of Willyabrup Valley came up for sale he leapt at the chance to fulfil his dream of making his own style of boutique wines and became the owner/winemaker of Hay Shed Hill Winery. Since the launch in 2006 this much lauded winemaker has worked hard, getting to know every inch of his land intimately and nurturing his old vines. He has consistently produced wonderfully pure wines that truly represent this unique terroir. Winemaking is his passion and the reception of his wines on the international arena took this modest man by surprise.

Michael’s premium wines are named after the old hay shed that has stood since the 1920’s when the estate was a dairy farm. The grapes are chosen from the best sites on his estate where attention is paid to the slightest variation of gradient so only those vines with the optimum sunshine; soils and exposure are chosen for the Hay Shed Hill label. The low yielding vines give concentration and complexity to these wines helping them reflect the cool region and vineyard. These wines are beautifully crafted and are ideal companions to food.
