Who is Dormilona?
Jospehine Perry took the leap from wine consultant to winemaker after studying winemaking remotely with Charles Sturt university, so she could fit in more on-site experience. She developed her craft in Rhône, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Spain, New Zealand, and California. She was mentored by Philip Shaw in Orange and managed winemaking operations at two wineries in Galicia while also consulting in the Canary Islands before returning to Western Australia to get started on Dormilona.
Josephine’s winemaking approach is to pick earlier, take a hands-off lo-fi approach to create unusually vibrant, textured and energetic expressions on familiar wine varieties. Despite a minimal intervention approach, her wines are detailed, poised and somewhat more refined that what we usually expect from natural wines.
