Smithbrook is located, in Smithbrook, in the heart of the maritime wine region of Pemberton in the South West of Western Australia. Planted in the late 1980's, the Smithbrook vineyard was set up for producing premium wine by WA wine identity Bill Pannell and is now one of Pemberton's oldest vineyards. With native forests and fauna so prevalent in the Pemberton region, Smithbrook has a strict philosophy of absolute minimal impact on the environment.

A natural approach to managing the vines involves pruning them back to a level that can be supported by the natural rainfall and soils, avoiding the need for irrigation and fertilisers. This results in low yielding vines producing fruit with an extra depth of character, thus realising the distinctiveness of the site. Insecticides are also avoided, instead relying on natural insect predators and guinea fowl which are released into the vineyard when required.

Smithbrook focusses on varieties it considers best suited to the Pemberton wine region: sauvignon blanc and merlot.

Every year in October it hosts the Smithbrook Showjumping Derby, a signature event for hte region which attacts national-class showjumpers to compete for one of the richest prizes in WA.
