Si Vintners is a winery in Rosa Glen in the Margaret River region of Western Australia. Founder owners Sarah Morris and Iwo Jakimowicz are husband and wife, and both are qualified winemakers. They had been working in Calatayud, Spain, for a co-operative but decided to return home to Australia in September 2010, acquiring a 12.1 hectare (30-acre) estate with 8 hectares (20 acres) under vine, the majority of which had been planted in 1978. The property is situated just south of the Margaret River township, Western Australia. They maintained ties with Calatayud by creating the Casa de Si winery there with friends.
