While adults enjoy the distinct, quality, regional wines, kids love the European-designed-playground and museums.

The Wines
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.

Culinary Experiences
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, as well as estate grown produce. 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 and enjoy a Aravina grazing board or Pizza from our newly opened Pizza Bar. Visit on the weekends and enjoy live gigs on the lawn for the whole family to enjoy.

Description

In 1995 Trevor and Lyn Mann decided it was time for a sea change, relocating to Margaret River in pursuit of an adventure in viticulture. With their experience limited to sampling plenty of the product, but armed with a vision and loads of self-belief, they dived straight into their new journey and planted 10,000 young vines of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The first harvest in 1999 was a momentous occasion.

The vineyard follows biological farming principles and the wines are 100% estate grown and made. The team believe it’s the small things that make the big difference and make their wines extra special. These days daughter Bronnley Cahill is in the winemaking driver’s seat.

Taking the best of the old world and new world approaches to winemaking, Brookwood Estate makes wines with minimal intervention to capture the essence of their vineyard. The range includes sweet through to dry wines sparkling.

In 2004 Sam Castelli purchased land and a partially finished winery building on what is now the Castelli Estate, with the intention of using it as a family holiday home.  After finishing the winery building, Sam decided to continue what the previous owners had started and turned it into an operating winery after all. So began a bright and star-studded journey. 

Sam Castelli didn’t stop the construction at a winery. The estate now boasts a cellar door which is open Wednesday to Monday, 11am to 4 pm, and an authentic Italian restaurant which is open Wednesday to Monday 12 pm to 3:30 pm for lunch and  Fridays and Saturdays 6pm to 9:30pm for dinner.  And also the newly renovated accomodation just next to the restaurant, with five Deluxe king size en-suites and expansive views over Mt Lindsay, the vineyards, and the green rolling hills and Karri trees so typical of the Denmark countryside.

The Wines
The wines are made by local winemaker Mike Garland and are consistently awarded high scores from national wine press, and enjoy medals and trophies at wine shows around Australia.

Five ranges of wine are sourced exclusively from the Home Block vineyard in Denmark, and vineyards in Mt Barker, Pemberton, The Porongurups and Frankland River.

Wines available to try and purchase include riesling, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, shiraz, cabernet, grenache, a sparkling and a dessert wine.  The winery also makes a selection of alternate varietal wines, including an orange chardonnay and an iced viognier.

First planted in 1976, Clairault Streicker has grown from a modest 4-hectare vineyard to a 200-hectare estate, incorporating four premium vineyards throughout Margaret River. The estate maintains an exceptional track record for its wines, which are grown following natural, biological farming principles.

Clairault Steicker combines two unique Margaret River wine stories. Streicker Wines began with a Yallingup vineyard in 2002, acquired by US native John Streicker who was so taken with the local lifestyle, sustainable viticulture ethos and world-class wines when visiting in 2001 that he decided to pursue his wine dreams in Margaret River. In 2012, historic estate Clairault Wines became part of the Streicker portfolio. Major enhancements have been made to all vineyard management to continually improve fruit and wine quality.

The Wines
The wine range celebrates the diversity of Margaret River’s hero varieties when grown in different areas of the wine appellation, with highlights including a single vineyard Cabernet made from 40 year old Wilyabrup vines and a cool-climate looking Syrah from Wallcliffe. It is a pure and unique journey through terroir in Margaret River. Look out for a few niche varieties in the mix too.

Wine Tasting
Follow a scenic driveway off Caves Road through farm land and native forest to the contemporary cellar door. A relaxing environment to discover the premium wines, it also offers a selection of house made produce available for sale. Private tours and tastings can be arranged in advance. Open 10am-5pm daily.

The Food
The Clairault Streicker Café serves up a selection of modern Australian share-plates for lunch daily. The menu showcases excellent produce, served simply, ideal for those who enjoy less formal dining. For the ultimate indulgence, spend an afternoon with the 5 course long lunch. A gorgeous stone fire-place makes for cosy dining in winter, while in summer, a picnic blanket in the gardens makes for a blissful lunch setting.

Unique Highlights
In addition to wine grapes, the Clairault Streicker Estate Yallingup vineyard grows Protea flowers and table grapes.

Hamelin Bay Wines was established by the Drake-Brockman family in 1992. The family-run vineyard features a restaurant and cellar door and is built upon a unique family history in the region.

A Serendipitous Tale
Owner Richard Drake-Brockman is the great grandson of regional pioneer Grace Bussell, whose family first settled in the Margaret River region in 1830. Grace is famous for her courage as a 16-year-old when, with aboriginal stockman Sam Isaacs, she rescued the survivors of the ‘Georgette’ shipwreck at Redgate Beach. Her husband, Frederick Brockman is known for his exploration of the Kimberley. He read about Grace’s feat in the newspaper and was so impressed, he rode 300km on horseback to meet her. This romantic tale ended happily when they married in 1882.

In a stroke of serendipity, Hamelin Bay’s vineyard and winery is located at the intersection of the Brockman and Bussell Highways, which were named in honour of these two pioneering families.

The Wines
The unique Five Ashes vineyard is one of Margaret River’s most picturesque vineyards. The moderate maritime climate and a north facing ridge of prime gravely loam soils are ideal for premium quality grape growing.  The white wines exude freshness and elegance, and the red wines have restrained power and depth. Since first vintage in 1996, Hamelin Bay has been awarded more than 10 major wine show trophies and numerous gold, silver and bronze medals.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door sits on a peaceful valley slope overlooking the vines, an idyllic lake and rolling hills surrounded by Marri forest. Follow a magnificent granite entry through to the contemporary tasting space daily, from 10am to 4.45pm for wine tasting.

A regional pioneer, Plantagenet Wines was planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vines in 1968 by founder Tony Smith. The first wines were made in 1974 and showed great potential, encouraging Tony to convert a local apple packing shed into a winery and keep making what are now regarded amongst Australia’s most respected examples of Cabernet and Shiraz. Subsequent vineyards were planted, and fruit now comes from five estate-owned properties around the Mount Barker area.

Western Australia’s oldest family business Lionel Samson & Son acquired Plantagenet in 1999 and the estate continues to grow from strength to strength, with an international reputation for its Rieslings, Chardonnays, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Voyager Estate specialises in seated wine flight style tastings that offer an in-depth understanding of the wines.
