About Our Winery
A hearty Great Southern welcome to Rising Star Wines!
Originally planted in 1989, Rising Star Vineyard is located in the picturesque Scotsdale Valley only 5 minutes from the town of Denmark, Western Australia.
This massive wine region, the “Great Southern” is famously known for it’s rich soils and an ideal cool climate providing perfect conditions for slow ripening and full fruit flavour development in the vineyard.
Purchased in 2005 by Texans Paul and Gwen Hyatt, the couple saw the potential to enhance and nurture this dynamic boutique vineyard in a picturesque WA location.
Our estate grown wines express a 'sense of place'. Located in Denmark, Western Australia, near the Southern Ocean providing perfect conditions for slow ripening.

Paul & Gwen Hyatt
For Texans Paul and Gwen Hyatt, searching for their own little piece of heaven began several years back on a holiday to Western Australia.
More like a love story than a business venture the couple developed a deep affection for Western Australia’s similarities to Texas. With wide open spaces, friendly hospitable people, and the local ‘can do attitude’ it all felt comfortingly familiar.
