Swooping Magpie is a Boutique Vineyard and Premium Wine producer based at Yallingup in the Margaret River Wine Region of Western Australia.Our Vineyard is situated at the top of the Naturaliste Ridge; it was established in 1997/98, and is owned & operated by Neil Tuffield.Our aim is to produce a small Premium range of hand-crafted and affordable wines featuring both Varietal and Blended styles to be marketed locally, and in selected outlets within Australia & overseas.
The vineyard sits on a plateau 140 metres above sea-level. Our “Mediterranean-maritime” style climate features Indian Ocean breezes that flow up from the valleys and cool the vineyard in the evening during the long warm growing season.We run the farm with sustainable agricultural practices, and use minimal water resources. All harvesting & pruning is by traditional hand methods, and we use organic fertilizers and vine-sprays.
We use several contract winemakers, depending on the particular wine made. Including Kevin McKay, Todd Payne, Julian Langworthy, Ben Rechtor and Mark Standish. Each with varying years of experience both here in Margaret River, or in the Eastern States and overseas.

Ever tried a 100% Varietal Cabernet Franc? No- well come on down! ...this vineyard was planted as a Vine Improvement block last century with 3 different clones being blended into a typically floral Cab Franc-taste the Grand-daddy of the Cabernet family with all its subtle complexities.
