Established in 1967, Vasse Felix is Margaret River’s founding wine Estate.
Margaret River experiences the unique combination of a Mediterranean climate, maritime influence and ancient gravel-loam soils making it ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Everyone is warmly invited to explore the Vasse Felix Estate, which is widely regarded as one of Australia's top winery destinations. The estate boasts a restaurant, cellar door, and art gallery and offers a range of hosted Estate tour experiences, providing you with the perfect opportunity to turn your visit into a memorable day out.
All winemaking from vine to bottle is controlled within the Estate. Fruit is harvested, fermented and matured in small, separate parcels before each barrel is graded, trial blended and allocated to its final wine, working from the Icon wines, through the Premier, Filius and Classic tiers.
Founder Dr Tom Cullity searched the region relentlessly for his first vineyard site, before selecting 8 acres in Wilyabrup, which today remains at the heart of the Vasse Felix Estate. Vasse Felix produced Margaret River’s first Cabernet Sauvignon at the Estate in 1972 and the wines maintain a reputation as regional and national benchmarks. Vineyard expansions have been made with equal consideration and an unwavering commitment to Cullity’s simple founding aim; “to make the best possible wine.”
Margaret River’s undulating coastline is spectacular and a well-known international surfing destination. There are also numerous ancient caves that can be explored and many Margaret River Estates, including Vasse Felix, have Restaurants offering modern Australian menus, comprising the outstanding local produce in the region.
