Frankland River icon, Alkoomi, is owned and operated by Sandy and Rod Hallett who have been nurturing and growing the family business over the past 11 years to create authentic wines and continue the family legacy of more than 50 years of grape farming. Thought to be derived from local indigenous language – Alkoomi, meaning 'a place we chose', was established in 1946 as a grain and livestock farm by Sandy's grandparents, Vic and Netta Lange. With the first vines planted in a bold venture by Sandy’s parents, Merv and Judy Lange, in 1971 the journey of Alkoomi wines began. The family today grows a wide range of different grape varieties perfectly suited to the cool, continental climate of Frankland River. Their vineyard practices are respectful to the land and they are always adapting and evolving their techniques, technology and methods to be as low impact and sustainable as possible.
