Josephine Perry is the one woman show behind Margaret River’s Dormilona. After finishing a degree in Oenology, Jo completed many a vintage throughout France (Burgundy, Bordeaux and the Rhone Valley), plus harvests in California, New Zealand and Australia, Jo also spent seven years managing two wineries in Spain and consulting to a winery in the Canary Islands.
Now Jo is back on home turf, focusing on her own label of natural wines, Dormilona (“Lazy bones”) and her business Perryscope Wine solutions. She runs her own “micro” winery in Margaret River, offers small batch winemaking to clients plus consulting to larger wineries and is currently working towards becoming certified biodynamic winery.
"We are all about the pursuit of creating amazing quality wines from organic & biodynamic fruit with no additives and very little intervention. We believe that this helps to express the vineyards character, the vintage and in return make tasty wines that are alternative in fashion & style.
To put it simply, wines that are pure & beautifully created with loads of love & attention. So, no finings nor filtration & only minimal use of sulphur at bottling.
Hence the name Dormilona, which means ‘lazy bones’ in Spanish. As it is a very laid back style of winemaking." Jo Perry
