Sittella Wines is located in Herne Hill, in the Swan Valley wine region of Western Australia's Greater Perth area. Restaurant on site.

Rolling hills and undulating vineyards formed the back drop for Simon and Maaike Berns's travels through France in the eighties. The couple experienced the food, the wines, the French passion for growing grapes, making their own wines and their love for live ‘savoir vivre'. It was this inspiration that Simon and Maaike took back with them to Perth.

Simon showed his interest for viticulture and possibly making some wine for family and friends. So the couple purchased land in the Swan Valley in 1993 and began to plant a vineyard on weekends. Initially Verdelho, a Portuguese variety, Chardonnay and Shiraz were planted. Later other varieties such as Petit Verdot and Tempranillo, suitable to the Swan Valley's hot climate. More recently fruit has been sourced from their vineyard in Margaret River and fruit purchased from Frankland River.

Visit them as well at the Wildberry Springs Estate vineyard in the Margaret River region.
