Description

The Old Kent Yard vineyard is located in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia, with its cellar door in Margaret River. Originally set up in 1952 as a sheep farm, a vineyard area was planted with Pinot Noir in 1985. These days Chardonnay, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc are grown too. Hands-on and down to earth owners, the Noacks, conducted a major rehabilitation scheme across the whole property, including a tree-planting programme, whereby various species of Eucalypt and deep-rooted perennials were planted. 

‘The Farm,’ as known to the family also produces lamb and elusive native marron that are sold at the Cellar Door.

The Wines
Old Kent Road is a serious, cool-climate, single vineyard producer that focuses varietal, regionally expressive wines. The vineyard started out growing fruit for established wine producers. Seeing the great success of their wines, the Noacks decided to produce their own label, releasing a sparkling wine and pinot noir in 1991. These wines achieved a raft of awards and remain the flagships of the Old Kent River range.

Wine Tasting
Since 2017 the winery has operated a rammed-earth cellar door, conveniently located on the corner of Caves and Ellen Brook Road just north of Margaret River town. The whole range of wines from Margaret River and the Great Southern can be tasted. Groups tastings can be booked in advance for groups of 8 or more. Open daily 10am – 5pm. Closed Tuesday and Wednesday in non-peak season.

Unique Highlights
The large lawn has ample picnic tables and blankets for a picturesque picnic. Create a platter from a small selection of local cheese and produce, or pre-order a Gourmet Picnic Hamper by famous local Chef Lainy Mammone (requires 48 hours notice).

Description

Established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity, Vasse Felix is Margaret River's founding wine estate.

One of the great wine regions of the world, Margaret River enjoys a truly unique environment and climate which makes it a paradise for winemakers and wine lovers alike.  From the first plantings right up to the modern day, Vasse Felix has always strived to explore and express the very best of the Margaret River region and to share it globally.   

Owned by the Holmes a Court family since 1987, Vasse Felix has carefully expanded its vineyards over the decades to include four distinct and exceptional sites around the Margaret River region.  Each vineyard is matched to the best possible varieties and clones, and farmed sustainably using traditional and organic practices. 

In 2017 Vasse Felix was awarded the international title of ‘New World Winery of the Year’ by US Wine Enthusiast Magazine, one of six Australian wineries to ever win this title.

The Wines

Vasse Felix's wines reflect the varietal strengths of Margaret River, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, as well as Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blends.  All wines are vinified with minimal intervention and bottled within the Estate’s modern winery, situated at their Home Vineyard overlooking the Wilyabrup Brook. The Vasse Felix winemaking philosophy is founded on the beliefs that great wines are made in the vineyard, must be authentic expressions of their place, and are the work of a great team of passionate people.

Enjoy a classic over the counter wine tasting or self-paced seated option, alternatively linger in the chic wine lounge over a glass of wine or wine flight with charcuterie.

Description

Voyager Estate is a small, second generation, family-owned estate located in Stevens Valley and was established in 1978. Currently undergoing full organic conversion, the winery is one of Australia’s most ambitious and innovative producers of world-class Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. All wines are estate-grown and reflect the unique qualities of Stevens Valley in Wallcliffe, Margaret River, with its undulating slopes, warm summers and cooling maritime breezes.

The Wines
Voyager Estate specialises in making Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The range explores these in-depth, through three labels; MJW, Estate and Projects.

MJW wines are the pinnacle of viticulture and winemaking. Sourced from the very best fruit and only made in exceptional years when conditions are optimal. Made in extremely limited quantity and presented in a hand numbered bottle.

The Estate Range wines have become recognised as excellent expressions of their variety and wine style. They all play their part in demonstrating the effect that the gravel soils, microclimate, aspect, and maritime influence of our site have on these classic varieties. 

The Project Wines give the vineyard and winery teams the chance to showcase varieties and styles outside our Estate Range. It's an opportunity to trial different winemaking techniques, or highlight the nuances of the growing season.

Wine Tasting

Voyager Estate specialises in seated wine flight style tastings that offer an in-depth understanding of the wines. Wines can also be enjoyed by the glass or bottle, with share plates of cold meats and preserves available too. For something extra special, book a private tasting with the Estate Sommelier, or select one of the diverse behind the scenes tours that operate on weekdays. Open 10am – 5pm daily.

The Restaurant
Headed by Spanish Chef Santiago Fernandez, who won WA Regional Chef of the Year (2018 WA Good Food Guide), Voyager Estate specialises in wine-paired menus. The 4 or 7 course degustation menu shows off not just the Voyager Estate wines, but also Margaret River’s impressive seasonal produce. It changes every two months. Open from 11.30am daily.

The restaurant was also awarded Regional Restaurant of the Year in the WA Good Food Guide awards in November 2018.

Description

Woody Nook prides itself on boutique winemaking that is laid back but highly awarded. In the past decade the wines have won more than 200 awards including 3 trophies and a bucketful of medals.

It all began in 1978 when original owners Jeff and Wynn Gallagher purchased a Margaret River property that was home to a saw mill with the intention of planting vines. The first cuttings were planted in 1982 and the first Woody Nook wines made in 1987 in a winery built solely from the native materials growing on the property. In 2000 Peter and Jane Bailey became owners.

The Wines

The range includes sweet to dry table wines made from Margaret River’s signature varieties alongside a few surprises including a Graciano, Tempranillo, Chenin Blanc and a Port.

Woody Nook’s friendly cellar door offers complimentary wine tastings from 10am to 5pm daily. An onsite gift shop stocks a range of souvenirs and there is also the unique opportunity to “adopt a vine.”

Description

Xanadu Wines has grown into one of Margaret River’s most exciting labels. For three years running it was the Best Wine Exhibitor on Show at the Margaret River Wine Awards (2010, 2012, 2013). This was topped off in 2014 when Xanadu was awarded James Halliday’s Australian Winery of the Year.

A regional pioneer, Xanadu was established in 1977 by Dr John Lagan, an Irishman, who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. In 2005 the estate was purchased by the Rathbone family who own iconic Australian vineyards Mount Langi Ghiran and Yering Station.

There is an enclosed grass area and playground for kids, kids menu and colouring-in sheets are available.

The Wines
The wine range is grown from three estate-owned vineyards in Margaret River. The team’s philosophy is to nurture the wines through to the bottle, rather than ‘beating them into submission’ to make expressive, regional wines. With this principle and the leadership of winemaker Glenn Goodall the Chardonnays and Cabernet Sauvignons are some Margaret River’s most acclaimed benchmarks.

The winery's Cabernet Sauvignon received the Jimmy Watson Trophy in 2018.

Wine Tasting
Built from granite and gneissic rocks excavated during the planting of the original vineyard, the cellar door first was used as artist studio. The rustic meets contemporary building in the heart of the vineyard, surrounded by native vegetation. All wines can be tasted daily and groups are encouraged to book a structured tasting, starting from $5 for 10 or more guests. Private winery tours can be arranged in advance too. Open daily 10am – 5pm.

The Food
A regular representative of The West Australian Good Food Guide’s Top 50 WA Restaurants, the Xanadu restaurant serves up classic, stylish meals made with produce from the nearby farms, ocean and the Xanadu vegetable garden. Look out for a special selection of museum wine releases that cannot be found anywhere else in the world, but in the Xanadu Restaurant. Executive Chef Melissa Kakoti has been at the helm since 2007. The restaurant is open daily from 12pm - 3pm.
