Welcome to Byron & Harold
The home of quality premium wines that reflect both provenance and style.
Two lovers of wine, not just the drinking of it (though they certainly love that) but the romance of it, the history of it and the pleasure and – yes – inspiration it has given human beings for thousands of years.
Two lovers of wine, one from the west and one from the east, determined to find, package and present the wine they love in the way they love it.
One with the surname Byron, the other with the given name Harold; two gentlemen, really, in the true sense of the word, but with a secret admiration for the 19th century English poet who in his day was regarded as ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know.’
Paul Byron and Harold (Ralph) Dunning have joined forces with business specialist Rose Eveson and Vigneron Andrew Lane to seamlessly deliver the highest quality wines and service to the wine drinker of today. After more than sixty five years combined experience in the Australian wine trade, to seek out those parcels of wine that they believe Australian wine lovers really want to drink. Wines with flavour, wines that are true to their variety – wines with provenance.
They have chosen to base themselves in the Great Southern region of Western Australia where they have teamed up with a young, energetic, local winemaker – Luke Eckersley to deliver on their vision. As Luke says “we have the ideal environment here in Great Southern to craft truly sensational wines. Our deep, rich soils, combined with the cooling Southern Ocean breezes allow for a long, even ripening period in the vineyard. This is what it is all about – warm days with cool nights that deliver to us wines that express unique regional and varietal characters with finesse, elegance and definition.”
