KOBE WINE BEEF
Kobe Wine Beef is raised in the famous Hyogo prefecture in Kobe, Japan. While Kobe is famous for A5 Wagyu, it also boasts a booming wine industry. The farmers at Kobe Wine Beef Association partnered with the local wine manufacturers and the cows are fed byproduct from the wine production. This fermented byproduct raises the polyphenol levels in the cows. Elevated polyphenol levels create a very low-stress level in the cows, which then yields exceptionally tender meat.
The Westholme Wagyu herd contains the most highly credentialed Wagyu cattle to leave Japan. Three Japan born, Hongen registered champion sires are the founding patriarchs of the Westholme herd – 001 Hirashige-Tayasu (from the Kedaka line); 002 Itomoritaka (from the Fujioshi line) and 003 Kitateruyasu-doi (from the Tajiri/Tajima line). These bulls were bred to Hongen registered Kedaka, Tajiri and Fujiyoshi females.
Over two decades, we have built on these foundation bloodlines to produce an outstanding, even herd of Wagyu cattle in the Westholme stud. They set the high standard of Westholme beef.
Westholme cattle are born wild on AACo’s pristine outback stations, raised on grass and finished on a specialised grain blend, to achieve rich marbling throughout the cut. Great care and attention to detail underpins Westholme beef production.
Westholme also sources cattle from strategic partners to supplement our beef supply through the year. We take full control over the processing and grading of these cattle to ensure the quality standards for our Westholme beef are upheld.
Westholme cattle came to Australia from Japan more than two decades ago. Their lineage traces back to the mighty Westholme herd that was founded on champion Wagyu bulls and cows.
