Wayawu Estate is a family owned boutique winery on a picturesque property owned by Stephanie and John Henry. Stephanie manages the vineyard while John manages the winery. Family and friends help with the pruning, the picking and with the bottling.
Wayawu is a Northeast Arnhem Land word for places where the Milky Way touches the earth. This name was bestowed on our property by the Manggalili artist Nami Maymuru-White in 1984.
Nami gave permission for us to use this name for our Estate in 2006. One of Nami’s paintings of the Milky Way was reproduced on the labels of our early vintages.
Pronunciation? Wayawu is pronounced as Wayawoo (similar to the ending in ‘Woolloomooloo’).
