Rickety Gate Wines
Boutique producer of ultra-premium cool climate wines. Hand picked harvesting along with the utmost passionate and dedicated winemaking, this winery has to be on your "must visit" list. With renown winemaker John Wade, Russell & Linda Hubbard have produced some of the most enjoyable and delighful wines in Denmark.
Medal winning Merlot and Trophy winner for Reisling. This picturesque vineyard established by Russell and Linda Hubbard is situated 19kms along the scenic Scotsdale Road Tourist Route in Denmark, W.A. Its valley aspect with rich Karri loam’s and gravely soils combined with the north facing slopes of the Bennett Ranges makes this site an ideal location for growing cool climate wine grapes.
On the 1st January 2000 the Hubbard Family exchanged the hustle and bustle of the city for the pristine environment of Denmark. Their dream was to produce premium wines and to accomplish this they adopted a “No Compromises” ethos. By late 2000 they had completed planting the vineyard to Merlot, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Hubbards believe there is middle ground between organic and contemporary viticultural practices and have proven that by combining both disciplines sensibly, they can produce stunning fruit. Having planted the Estate Vineyard they then constructed an Estate Winery in which their winemaker Mr. John Wade has complete control throughout the winemaking process. James Halliday quotes John Wade as being “arguably the most experienced Winemaker in Western Australia”.
The combination of Russell and Linda’s passion, hard work and total commitment to viticultural excellence and John’s unrivalled Winemaking ability is evidenced by their premium wines.
