Over 150 Years of History
Millbrook is a boutique winery and restaurant in the historic town of Jarrahdale in Western Australia, 50 minutes south-east of Perth. The winery is located at the picturesque Chestnut Farm, a property that backs on to the Serpentine River and is nestled among jarrah forests, with stunning vistas of the rolling landscape.
The origins of Chestnut Farm date back to the 19th century, when the original owner, Joseph Batt, planted an orchard and the first grapevines in 1865, providing fruit to the local timber-millers in Jarrahdale.

A Family Affair
In 1996, Chestnut Farm and Millbrook Winery were bought by Peter and Lee Fogarty, marking the family’s first entry into the wine business. The Fogartys, together with their children John, Mark and Anna, planted the first vines, making the vineyard a true labour of love.
In 2001, construction of the state-of-the-art winery was completed. It is now a stunning home to a modern winemaking facility, barrel halls, a tasting room and a restaurant. Incorporating both local stone and timbers, Millbrook showcases the natural beauty and products of the
Perth Hills region.
