When you drink Bunkers wines you’re embarking on an adventure full of discovery! Taking their name from Bunker Bay in Cape Naturaliste, a pristine peninsula in Western Australia’s Margaret River. Bunkers combines two of the region’s greatest attractions, surfing and wine. Bunkers wines are named after Margaret River surf breaks, including Windmills, Honeycombs, Bears, Lefthanders and Guillotines.
The Calneggias are the owner-operators, a family with almost three decades of wine industry experience. Mike Calneggia started with Selwyn Wines where he came up with a new “Wine on Tap” dispensing system, followed by the establishment of vineyards and the construction of a winery. Along with his wife Sally, Mike bought his first vineyard in 1994, at the same time developing other vineyards across Margaret River’s northern area. In 2010, they took the step of becoming wine producers, launching the Bunkers range. Today, the Bunkers vision and drive are provided by the family members in close association with winemaker Severine Logan. Of course, innovation in the winery is ongoing and the experimentation with more alternative varietals is a continued future goal.
At Bunkers wines, all tastes are covered with the wines ranging from zippy Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay to rich, generous Tempranillo and delicious Cabernet. They say "These are serious wines… for not so serious people."
