About Passel Estate
a Family-owned vineyard producing award-winning wines
Located in the heart of Margaret River in western Australia, Passel Estate is a family-owned vineyard and tasting room with a strong emphasis on exceptional wine and nature conservation at its heart.
Owned by Wendy and Barry Stimpston since 2011, the estate is driven by quality low yields and a single-vineyard focus. The couple started producing their own wine with the 2015 vintage when the label Passel Estate was born.
Aside from producing award-winning wines, Passel Estate also provides sanctuary to the endangered Western Ringtail Possum (the name ‘Passel’ refers to the correct term for a family of possums).
VinAccessGlobal and Passel Estate have been working together since 2020. Passel Estate wines are now available in Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore, and soon will be in the UK and South Korea.
