The name Knee Deep is a ‘tongue in cheek’ reference to firstly the passion and dedication towards producing premium Margaret River wines and secondly a wry smile to jumping in boots and all during the testing conditions of an influx of grapes in the region in the year the vineyard was born. Knee Deep reflects the laid back Margaret River state of mind in which visitors find it easy to immerse themselves. Knee Deep has established itself as a 'not to be missed destination' when in the region, and a favourite among locals.
