Description

Flametree Wines catapulted into Australia’s winemaking hall of fame in 2008 when its first ever red wine, a Cabernet Merlot, won the Jimmy Watson Trophy, Australia’s most-respected national wine prize. The following year it was a finalist for the same award. Substantial critical acclaim has followed.

The Estate was established by the Towner family in 2007 and was created with a vision to become a world-recognised winery committed to producing consistent, distinctive Margaret River wines. 

The Wines
The estate specialises in Chardonnay, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Shiraz, Rose, Sparkling and Dessert varieties. 

Wine Tasting
The exceptional wines are brought to life at its laid-back, architecturally-designed Estate. Think Hampton’s style meets relaxed Margaret River atmosphere, with a Cape Cod design building, enviable deck, open fireplace and manicured gardens.

The Cellar Door’s timber joinery, natural stone, American Walnut floors and shingle roofing create an atmosphere that is both welcoming and grandiose. Wine tastings are relaxed and unpretentious – geared solely around the pleasure of enjoying exceptional wines. Group bookings can be arranged in advance. 

The Food
Visitors can create their own custom gourmet platter of cheese, antipasto and charcuterie, from outstanding local producers like Cambray Cheese, the Venison Farm and the Margaret River Pantry. These are best enjoyed with a glass of wine, of course!

Unique Highlights
The Art Gallery hosts an annual program of exhibitions that showcase and support the local art community. Pets and children are welcome and will love the wide, spacious lawn area to play on. There is also a wheelchair accessible ramp at the front entrance.

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.

Description

Wise Wine was established by Ron and Sandra Wise in 1992 in a truly iconic setting, surrounded by vineyard and the natural bushland of Meelup Regional Park looking out to the pristine blue waters of Geographe Bay. The property’s two restaurants and expansive wine tasting list make for a spectacular experience with a vista to be remembered forever!

The Wine
The wine range aims to suit all taste preferences and budgets, offering 20 quality sparkling, white, red, dessert and fortified wines. The winemaking philosophy includes sourcing parcels of the highest quality fruit from top vineyards in the WA regions that are most-suited to grow each grape variety.

Celebrated winemaking consultant, Larry Cherubino, has overseen activities at the winery for many years. His stewardship has seen the quality of Wise Wines become some of the most awarded in the region, winning Gold medals at many Australian Wine Shows.

The Food
Wise Vineyard Restaurant is one of the best known restaurants in the region, where you can enjoy a stunning meal with ocean views. The menu features contemporary cuisine which changes regularly as local produce comes in and out of season. 

For a more casual dining experience, take a short trip down to the valley, to the banks of the Meelup Brook and visit Lot 80 Tavern & Restaurant. Housed in a historic stone and timber building built by local farmers and craftsmen, it features Italian, French, Spanish and Australian-inspired tasting and shared menus that utilise local ingredients, where possible.
