Larry Cherubino’s aim is to make ‘uniquely West Australian wines of great depth, detail and purity, true to their provenance’. Grapes come mainly from Great Southern and its Porongurup and Frankland River sub-regions, Pemberton and Margaret River, for Ad Hoc, The Yard, Pedestal, Laissez Faire and the flagship Cherubino label. Cherubino was a Gourmet Traveller Winemaker of the Year finalist in 2003 and 2009. He had a high-profile even before starting Larry Cherubino Wines in 2005, having held senior roles at Hardy’s Tintara in South Australia and Houghton in Western Australia. Larry Cherubino Wines was James Halliday’s 2011 Winery of the Year.
