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.

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.
