Cape Mentelle

One of the first founding wineries of Margaret River

About the winery
Venture behind the scenes on a guided tour to discover the explorative winemaking philosophy of Cape Mentelle, one of Margaret River's pioneering wine producers. While learning about the terroir of this world-class wine region, visitors can stand in the iconic 1970-planted Wallcliffe vineyard, one of the region's first commercial plantings. Guests can taste wines straight from the tank before enjoying a private tasting hosted in the barrel cellar, featuring six wines matched to a selection of delicious local produce. A guided interactive and educational experience that takes one through a flight of white and red wines both from an in depth tasting perspective and food pairing discovery. Every year during the summer months, the Cape Mentelle gardens transform into an outdoor cinema beside our iconic vines. Lying back under the stars, enjoying a movie whilst sipping on award-winning wine, there is no better way to spend a summer's night in the Margaret River region !

History & Geography
Cape Mentelle’s success was the result of a family’s labour of love and one man’s unfaltering belief that Australian wines belonged amongst the greatest of the world. Thanks to their determination and the award of prestigious wine trophies in the Estate’s early years, Cape Mentelle and his founder, David Hohnen, contributed significantly to putting Margaret River on the global map. Driven by a strong ethos of exploration, the team contintinues to strive to uncocover new expressions of the terroir through variety exploration and bespoke techniques. Surrounded by two oceans on three sides, the climate of Margaret River is unlike any other : one of the world’s most remote wine regions, with a rugged coastline bordered by native forests dotted with vineyards. Margaret River is a remote heartland and epicentre of Australia’s finest boutique vineyards, producing 20% of Australia’s ‘premium wine’ but less than 2% of its total production.
