Description

In 1995 Trevor and Lyn Mann decided it was time for a sea change, relocating to Margaret River in pursuit of an adventure in viticulture. With their experience limited to sampling plenty of the product, but armed with a vision and loads of self-belief, they dived straight into their new journey and planted 10,000 young vines of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The first harvest in 1999 was a momentous occasion.

The vineyard follows biological farming principles and the wines are 100% estate grown and made. The team believe it’s the small things that make the big difference and make their wines extra special. These days daughter Bronnley Cahill is in the winemaking driver’s seat.

The Wines
Taking the best of the old world and new world approaches to winemaking, Brookwood Estate makes wines with minimal intervention to capture the essence of their vineyard. The range includes sweet through to dry wines sparkling.

The estate maintains an exceptional track record for its wines, which are grown following natural, biological farming principles.

Clairault Steicker combines two unique Margaret River wine stories. Streicker Wines began with a Yallingup vineyard in 2002, acquired by US native John Streicker who was so taken with the local lifestyle, sustainable viticulture ethos and world-class wines when visiting in 2001 that he decided to pursue his wine dreams in Margaret River. In 2012, historic estate Clairault Wines became part of the Streicker portfolio. Major enhancements have been made to all vineyard management to continually improve fruit and wine quality.

The Wines
The wine range celebrates the diversity of Margaret River’s hero varieties when grown in different areas of the wine appellation, with highlights including a single vineyard Cabernet made from 40 year old Wilyabrup vines and a cool-climate looking Syrah from Wallcliffe. It is a pure and unique journey through terroir in Margaret River. Look out for a few niche varieties in the mix too.

Wine Tasting
Follow a scenic driveway off Caves Road through farm land and native forest to the contemporary cellar door. A relaxing environment to discover the premium wines, it also offers a selection of house made produce available for sale. Private tours and tastings can be arranged in advance. Open 10am-5pm daily.

The Food
The Clairault Streicker Café serves up a selection of modern Australian share-plates for lunch daily. The menu showcases excellent produce, served simply, ideal for those who enjoy less formal dining. For the ultimate indulgence, spend an afternoon with the 5 course long lunch. A gorgeous stone fire-place makes for cosy dining in winter, while in summer, a picnic blanket in the gardens makes for a blissful lunch setting.

Unique Highlights
In addition to wine grapes, the Clairault Streicker Estate Yallingup vineyard grows Protea flowers and table grapes.

Hamelin Bay Wines was established by the Drake-Brockman family in 1992. The family-run vineyard features a restaurant and cellar door and is built upon a unique family history in the region.

A Serendipitous Tale
Owner Richard Drake-Brockman is the great grandson of regional pioneer Grace Bussell, whose family first settled in the Margaret River region in 1830. Grace is famous for her courage as a 16-year-old when, with aboriginal stockman Sam Isaacs, she rescued the survivors of the ‘Georgette’ shipwreck at Redgate Beach. Her husband, Frederick Brockman is known for his exploration of the Kimberley. He read about Grace’s feat in the newspaper and was so impressed, he rode 300km on horseback to meet her. This romantic tale ended happily when they married in 1882.

In a stroke of serendipity, Hamelin Bay’s vineyard and winery is located at the intersection of the Brockman and Bussell Highways, which were named in honour of these two pioneering families.

The Wines
The unique Five Ashes vineyard is one of Margaret River’s most picturesque vineyards. The moderate maritime climate and a north facing ridge of prime gravely loam soils are ideal for premium quality grape growing.  The white wines exude freshness and elegance, and the red wines have restrained power and depth. Since first vintage in 1996, Hamelin Bay has been awarded more than 10 major wine show trophies and numerous gold, silver and bronze medals.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door sits on a peaceful valley slope overlooking the vines, an idyllic lake and rolling hills surrounded by Marri forest. Follow a magnificent granite entry through to the contemporary tasting space daily, from 10am to 4.45pm for wine tasting.

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.

Voyager Estate specialises in seated wine flight style tastings that offer an in-depth understanding of the wines.

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.
