Aravina Estate was established in 2010 by Perth businessman and sixth generation West Australian, Steve Tobin. Named one of Australia’s “Ten Best New Wineries” (2014) by James Halliday, Aravina Estate offers a mix of memorable experiences for the whole family. While adults enjoy the distinct, quality, regional wines, kids love the European-designed-playground and museums.
The first vines were planted in 1986 on prime country in Yallingup and benefits from rich, free-draining lateritic soils, characteristic of the region. The wine-production incorporates some of the world's most innovative viticultural practices, including the use of natural pest reduction remedies and minimal application of sprays. Margaret River’s main wine varieties are all made here, along with Chenin Blanc and Tempranillo.
Sample and learn about the wines at the Cellar Door or gain a more intimate appreciation by booking a Wine Flight in the private wine tasting room. For something extra special, indulge Aravina Estate’s Wine Flight + Five wine and degustation dining experience.
The Aravina Estate Restaurant offers fine-dining in an elegant, “Vogue-living” style setting, as reviewed by local critic Rob Broadfield from The West Australian. The menu focuses on local, sustainable produce, sourced from a growing collection of local farmers. The dishes are designed to pair with the Aravina Estate wines. Bookings are recommended, especially during holiday periods. For something more casual, unwind on the lawn or enjoy an espresso from Aravina’s new café.
After indulging in stunning food and wine, discover the orchards, gardens and museums too. The Car Museum has an ever-changing range of European classics and Australian muscle cars on display.
The WA Surf Museum chronicles the local surf culture and history with an impressive collection of vintage surfboards and cool memorabilia to check out.
