Description

McHenry Honen is the fusion of an accomplished fine-wine retailer, Murray McHenry, with one of Margaret River’s most respected pioneers David Hohnen (founder of Cape Mentelle).

Their aim is to make the most site expressive wines they can from their three distinct family vineyards in Margaret River, all of which are 100% biodynamic. Biodynamics revolves around an environmental equilibrium. It is similar to organic farming, in that both preclude the use of chemicals, however biodynamic farming incorporates ideas about a vineyard as an ecosystem, and also accounts for astrological influences and lunar cycles.

The Wines
There is an unwavering focus on making distinct, site expressive wines and on embracing the individual characters that come from the different plots in the vineyards. This is achieved through minimal-intervention using wild yeasts, minimal sulphur, no filtration and large format oak and concrete fermenters. The range includes Margaret River’s specialty varieties and a few unexpected surprises. More than five single-site Chardonnays showcase just how different the flavours of this variety can be because of different site influences in the vineyard.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door is conveniently located on Caves Road, just five minutes from Margaret River town. The wines can be tasted between 10.30 and 4.30pm daily.

Unique Highlights
Don’t leave without some of David Hohnen’s smoked cold meats, sausages and traditionally made smallgoods from side venture, The Farm House Margaret River. These are sold from the McHenry Hohnen Cellar Door. David works with farmers around the region on this venture and his meats have a great reputation, especially with many of the local winemakers to enjoy with their friends and wines!

Description

Stella Bella began in 1996 from a fusion of two of the region’s great wine minds, Stuart Pym and Janice McDonald.  With the aim to craft wines that would rival Australia’s best, in 1999 the first 200 cases of barrel-aged Semillon Sauvignon Blanc were highly successful and the winery has flourished ever since. These days winemaking is headed by Luke Joliffe, and viticulture by Steve Martin.

Stella Bella crafts wine under five labels from its four vineyards located throughout southern Margaret River. The south of the region is known for its longer, cooler ripening period, producing wines with higher natural acidity, delicate precision and femininity, reminiscent of a “cool climate” wine style.

The Wines
Stella Bella first shot to fame with its Suckfizzle, a Bordeaux-inspired Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend. In addition to making Margaret River’s usual suspects, the winery pushes new frontiers with its sangiovese rosé, a small-batch pinot gris and sweet moscato. The wines are made in small batches enabling the winemakers enhance the best characteristics of each fruit parcel to make unique, quality wines.

Wine Tasting
Stella Bella operates from a charming little cellar door on Rosa Brook Road just minutes from Margaret River town. Our friendly and knowledgeable team welcome you to taste through our portfolio of wines, while learning about Stella Bella and the beautiful Margaret River Region. Visitors can also enjoy wine by the glass and BYO picnic options. Group tastings can be arranged in advance.

Dogs are welcome at the estate grounds but must be kept on a lead for their own safety.
