Description

Happs has welcomed visitors to their rustic cellar door for over 35 years. There is a wine for every palate including those allergic to preservatives. Many visitors review us on Trip Advisor. The 4.5 star rating puts the winery in the top 10% globally.

The Wines
The wines are produced entirely in house from estate-grown fruit from the Quindalup and the larger Karridale vineyard known as Three Hills. The Three Hills property is associated with later ripening, fuller flavour, elegance and finesse. The wine range includes sweet, dry, preservative free, fortified, and sparkling wines.

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 warm and inviting. Cellar door staff offer a friendly, educated approach to explain the extensive portfolio of wines.

Culinary Experiences
Take 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 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 local high school teachers Erl and Ros Happ, responded to the notion that world class wines could be produced locally. In the words of the Frank Sinatra song 'I did it my way'.

Description

Chris, Jo, Lucas and Violette Davies are a young West Australian family and the grape growers and artisan wine producers at Windows Estate.

All Windows Estate vines are cared for meticulously and dry block grown to ensure maximum concentration of flavours. Chris, a passionate viticulturist, completes every vineyard operation single-handedly. Apart from the very day the grapes are harvested, no one else is ever allowed to touch his vines!

In the winery, the preference is toward ancient, hand-processing methods with minimal use of machinery. As one of few remaining wineries still using a manual basket press, Window’s Estate Basket Pressed Cabernet Merlot, Basket Pressed Cabernet Sauvignon and Basket Pressed Shiraz are special propositions in Margaret River.

Sustainability is a key focus and over 60% of the Estate is reserved as natural bushland. Minimal intervention is employed in grape growing and winemaking processes and as a certified organic vineyard only organic fertilisers are used.

Cellar Door tastings are available daily. We also make our own pickles on site at our picklery, using locally grown produce. These can also be tasted and purchased at our cellar door. Cheese platters can be purchased to enjoy at the Estate. Being a small, family business, bookings are requested for tasting groups of 6 or more people.
