The Australian | Duke's Vineyard's Great Southern Dream, by James Halliday

We were honored to be featured James Halliday's guest column in The Australian.

"Ben is sensitive to the special place and much-loved Duke and Hilde in Porongurup, and is very much attuned to growing the brand by increasing quality, not quantity. Even as the brand continues to grow, the quality of Duke’s Vineyard’s wines have never faltered."

The article also shares Ben's recent moves in the vineyard.

"Ben Cane has moved to organic vineyard management, with biodynamics around the corner. He has also changed pruning to cane, thus allowing greater sunlight and breeze penetration through the canopy.
