Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery has 13 different wines available for tasting, with all of their wines having won awards, 6 Gold, 5 Silver and 2 Bronze and one of them a Show Champion at the Perth Wine Show, judged by grape wine judges.
A concern some people sometimes have with fruit wines is their tendency to be sweet and sticky however Shannonvale focus on producing dry table wines for the modern day palate.
Tony and Trudie work with a professional wine-maker consultant who is also a grape wine judge who advises them on the best way to turn their tropical fruits into award winning high-quality wines.
Both Tony and Trudie are retired and do not make vast quantities of wine allowing them to focus purely on the taste and quality of the wines.
