Predominantly known for its organic and handcrafted beer, Eagle Bay Brewing Co is also well-versed in the world of winemaking.

Description

Happs Wines has delighted visitors from near and far at their warm and rustic cellar door for over 35 years. Their aim to provide a wine for every palate is reflected in their extensive portfolio and willingness to break convention in terms of the size of their range and number of wine varieties within it.

The Wines
Happs Wines produces more than thirty grape varieties, all made from estate-grown fruit at two Margaret River vineyards. The northern Dunsborough vineyard enjoys a warmer growing season of rich and ripe qualities, while the southern ‘Three Hills’ property brings cooler-climate elegance and finesse. The wine range includes sweet, dry, preservative free, fortified, rare varietal, verjuice and more.

Wine Tasting
The rustic cellar door was built in the 1970s and is constructed of handmade mud-bricks. Look closely to see builders’ finger marks on the walls, capturing, “the essence of old school Margaret River". It's not flashy, minimalistic or modern, just warm and inviting. The surroundings feel homely and the cellar door staff offer a friendly, educated approach to explain the extensive portfolio of wines.

Culinary Experiences
Grab a basket and select from a range of gourmet cheese, meats, pickled vegetables and preserves from more than 15 local producers, pair with some Happs Wine and indulge! Picnic on the lawn, at the outside tables, or inside if it’s a rainy day.

The Commonage Pottery 
Happs Pottery began in Vasse in the early 1970s. The current workshop and gallery located onsite was built in 1978. See artists at work in the act of creation. A wide range of handicrafts and jewellery from local artisans is available.

Family Owned & Operated Since 1978
Back in the 1970s two young teachers named Erl and Ros Happ were inspired by the notion that world-class wines might be produced in the Margaret River region. At the time, new grape varieties were becoming more readily available in WA and this encouraged the couple to not only plant the usual cultivars that became a mark of the region but to experiment with unusual selections that presented more risk. This pioneering spirit has paid off. Since 1978, Happs Wines has become a hallmark of combining science and art to create unique wines of distinctive quality, with a loyal following.

The hand-crafted, estate-grown range also includes three sparkling wines and a selection of Cabernet blends, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon wines are also made.
