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 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.

Wine Tasting
Sample and learn about the wines at the Cellar Door. As there are so many wines to taste, we do charge a $6 tasting fee per person, which is deducted from any wine purchase and complimentary if dining in our restaurant.

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.

Unique Highlights
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.

  • Size & Year:Small (5,000-49,999 cases),Established 1951 - 2000
  • Facilities:Cellar Door,Dogs Welcome

Description

The historic property was originally a primary stop for travellers journeying between Perth and Margaret River on horse and buggy, a trip taking about three days. Some years later it became a dairy property. During this time whalers who moored their ships in the sheltered waters of Smith’s Beach would visit to purchase vegetables grown in the valley’s alluvial soils.

In 1970 the surrounding land was discovered to be rich in mineral sands and was purchased by a mining company. Prior to operations beginning, the government declared the land a national park, prohibiting any mining. In 1980 the property was purchased by winemaker Craig Brent-White. Vines were planted in 1997. 

THE WINES
The valley's rich variety of soil types and coastal aspect give the wines character and depth. This is accentuated by the bio-dynamic philosophies the vineyard follows to take advantage of the property’s soils, maritime location and abundance of clean ocean air from the Roaring Forties. (Strong westerly winds found in the Southern Hemisphere.)

The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The red wines are made in a traditional style for age-ability. The wines have won many awards, with a highlight being the Torpedo Rocks Cabernet Merlot 2009 being named Best Red from a Single Vineyard at London’s International Wine & Spirits competition in 2011.

The Cellar Door is open daily.

Description

The Credaro Family have been making wine for their family since settling in Margaret River in the 1920s. Commercial operations began in the 1980s and these days the family manages 140 hectares of vines over seven vineyards throughout Margaret River.

The Credaro Family Estate Fragola (an Italian red variety) is a special wine, rich with family history. Cesar Credaro was the first generation of the family to reside in the Margaret River area in the 1920s. With the help of the family, he took some Fragola cuttings from a small vineyard in Yallingup where he worked and planted an acre at Carbunup, from which the family would make a parcel of wine every year for family and friends. The Fragola has evolved from site to site with each generation of the family, but a wine is made each year out of tradition!

The Wines
Credaro’s winemaking approach involves selecting the fruit best parcels from their vineyards to make the best regional wines each vintage. The grapes planted are Margaret River’s leading varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Merlot. Two special plots of Fragola and Gewurtztraminer are also planted. Credaro Family Wines make all of their wines onsite in their winery in Northern Margaret River.

The Tuscan-style Cellar Door is located 10 minutes from Dunsborough and takes in spectacular views of the Wildwood Valley, ideal for a picnic lunch on the Estate’s expansive, manicured lawn.

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.
