New Norcia Wine District

New Norcia Wine District is based on the township of New Norcia which is located a scenic and leisurely two hour drive northeast from Perth. It is a small piece of Spain located in the Australian bush. Everyone, regardless of their beliefs, finds themselves moved by the sincerity and peacefulness of this tranquil community. The Benedictine monastery is situated on the site of the original mission buildings built in 1847 at tbe same site in the township of New Norcia. The monastery is still home to a group monks who still live a simple life of prayer in the community and work within the monastery, including their winery.

The New Norcia Wine Region includes one district: New Norcia
