This boutique, family-owned and operated winery’s award-winning range has been delighting wine collectors since 1982. Lenton Brae was established by the Tomlinson Family, who sought help in selecting their site from Moss Wood founder Bill Pannell. With its sweeping views across the Wilyabrup valley and marvellous bell towers, the cellar door is considered an architectural icon of Margaret River.
Lenton Brae excels in the Margaret River specialities of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are consistently recognised as being amongst the best of their type, with awards at regional, state and national competitions. All production takes place onsite and is 100% handpicked, with the wines made in small batches with minimal intervention. Margaret River’s famous Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend has a long history at the estate and in 2016 celebrated 30 consecutive vintages of the wine.
Taste the wine range from a unique viewing platform that overlooks the fully-operating winery. For something extra special, the $10 experience includes a tour of the winery and tasting in the barrel room and is available Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Five locally-made bells are housed in the cellar door’s stunning bell towers. They chime on the quarter hour with the well-known Westminster Chimes, associated with Grandfather clocks and London’s Big Ben.
