Our history

Until opening Holy Mary Cellars we have been solely focused on exporting overseas and not selling in the domestic market. As we are also owners of the Market we decided to open the cellar door and we only sell our wine domestically at this location.

Who is Holy Mary?

The name “Holy Mary Cellars” is dedicated to the owner’s (Helen) mother Mary. Mary was from an Irish family that settled in Australia 120 years age. Mary (Holy) had 11 children and Helens father is part of the family line of “Saint Mary MacKillop”.

Helen’s husband’s family travelled to Western Australia from Blato and Cara on the island of Korcula, where they cultivated vineyards and olive groves. The vineyard occupies a special place for the family, as the original home built in the 1920’s remains on the property and has been restored to its original state. The original wine making equipment installed in the 1920’s remains the vineyard together with some of the original table grapes and a magnificent fig tree.

We are very proud that our three sons are now the third generation to own the vineyard and label “Katgully” represents the first letters of their names. “K” for Kirk, “A” for Adam and “T” for Tony. The word “gully” represents a watercourse within the vineyard an area we fondly referred to as “the gully”.
We hope you enjoy our wine with your family as much as we enjoy making it with ours.

We have a range full-bodied red, classic dry white wines, sparkling wine and a beautiful Muscat to choose from.

We are open from 10am to 5pm Saturdays, Sundays and adjoining public holidays.

Cheese to compliment the flavour

The pairing of wine with cheese has evolved through generations of wine and cheese makers, in fact records dating back hundreds of years indicate that wine and cheese from the same locations have been served together for generations. Many cheese and wine varieties have grown up together, often on the same farm or within a small village and because of this close proximity, regional recipes for wine, cheese and other local dishes were paired.

In more recent times a number of scientific studies have been performed and scientists have determined that high fat, high protein foods balance the taste of tannin which makes cheese the perfect food to go with wine.  In 2016 a study by researchers in France looked at the sensory evidence of how cheese influences the perception of wine.  The results showed that consuming cheese actually makes people perceive wine as tasting better.

So come and taste our wine and cheese platter and do your own scientific experiment. 

About Robyn

Our Label Artist

photo of Robyn - artist for Katgully Wines bottle labels

I know my stories from my mother. I come from a long line of family artist from the Alawa/Mara lands of the Northern Territory, Australia. I was born in Darwin 1958. My mother Heather (Murranjii) Alley was born at the Roper River and still lives in the Northern Territory is a known painter, including her father/uncle Barney Ellaga. Barney’s work is very well known, highly recognised and collectable.

I moved over to Perth some years ago but still keep my family ties in the Territory. Most of my work is rather colourful though I can paint both contemporary and traditional.
