Description

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.

Wine Tasting

Description

Forest Hill has an interesting pioneer history and was once owned by the Holmes a Court family of Vasse Felix in Margaret River. In 1996 the vineyards were bought by the Lyons family, the current owners and old farming family from the Great Southern. The winery and cellar door were established in 2004 and the fine-dining restaurant, Pepper and Salt, is a popular wedding destination and from its elevated position has commanding views of the valley and estate vineyards.

 

The Wines:

The vineyard at Forest Hill winery was the site of the first grape plantings in the Great Southern in 1965, making it one of the oldest operating wineries in Western Australia.  The first vintage, a cabernet and a riesling, was released in 1972.  The cabernet was made by Jack Mann at Houghton Winery in the Swan Valley and the riesling by his son Dorham, at Sandalford.   

Today the wines are made by Guy Lyons and Liam Carmody.  There are 14 wines made at Forest Hill which include riesling, sauvignon blanc, gewurtztraminer, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and Malbec.

The Block Series wines are sourced from old dry-grown vineyards, and the riesling is often the recipient of medals and trophies at wineshows around the country.

 

Wine Tasting:

Positioned beneath the Pepper and Salt restaurant, and built into a stone cellar, the cellar door is open Thursday through Sunday 10.30am - 5pm. 

 

Unique Highlights:

Picturesque setting, dramatic backdrop of Karri trees, fine dining restaurant, exceptional cool-climate wines.

In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan in the transformation of their cattle farm into Leeuwin Estate. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1981 "Art Series" Chardonnay. The international accolades have continued and Leeuwin now exports to 30 markets. Celebrating the combination of fine wine, food, art and music, Leeuwin features an award-winning restaurant, cellar door and art gallery. The Estate is renowned for staging spectacular events and welcoming visitors from around the world.

With a focus on Margaret River’s hero wine varieties, the Leeuwin Estate Art Series, Prelude and Siblings labels are regional benchmarks and share a place amongst the great wines of Australia, receiving ongoing international acclaim and attention.

Since 1985, it has attracted an enviable list of international performers from Ray Charles to Diana Ross, Sting, James Taylor and Simply Red. Held annually in February and March, visit the Leeuwin Estate website for ticket information.
