Moss Wood History - 2000
Acquisition of Ribbon Vale Vineyard
By the commencement of the 2000 vintage a new winery building was added to process the expanded production. The year 2000 also saw the purchase of the Ribbon Vale vineyard which is located 1.6kms south of the Moss Wood vineyard within the Wilyabrup region.
The Ribbon Vale vines were planted between 1977 and 1982. The addition of the new vineyard introduced Moss Wood to Sauvignon Blanc and led to the first blended Semillon Sauvignon Blanc wine being made. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc completed the new stable.
