Mike remains in the role of viticulturist and Rob Diletti makes the wines.

The vineyards are nestled on the northern slope of the Porongurup range, providing a dramatic backdrop when looking over the vineyard towards the main house.

The Wines
The Porongurup sub-region in the Great Southern is known for producing long-lived rieslings with distinct floral characteristics, and pinots that show bright cherry, pomegranate and red berry characteristics. The wines have been time and again selected for medals and trophies at both regional and national wine shows within Australia, claiming a total of 9 wine show trophies.   

Wine Tasting
Visitors can enjoy the wines on tasting at the cellar door (open 7 days 10-5 ‘when the flag is flying and the sign is out’), an old shearing shed with views over the vineyards and the Kalgan plain. 

Unique Highlights
The view of the Porongurup Range, and the proximity to it.  The wine range is magnificent and concise, the views are picturesque.

Bella Ridge Estate

A niche, family-owned winery handmaking original and interesting wines from their 1960s vines in the Swan Valley to great acclaim, following a chance encounter with James Halliday. No cellar door.

  • Facilities:No Cellar Door

Description

Alon and Jodi Arbel purchased the property in 2003, building their winemaking facility in just three short months. Following a chance encounter, when James Halliday tasted their unnamed and unlabelled Shiraz, Bella Ridge Estate was born. (The winery needed a name to be printed for a national review in Halliday’s column in The Weekend Australian!)

The vines, planted in the 1960s, are almost entirely non-irrigated and crop levels are kept very low. Coupled with the vineyard's aspect on the foot hills of the Darling Range and the excellent gravelly loam soil, the result is grapes of excellent quality with highly concentrated fruit flavours.

The Wines

Focusing on warm climate varieties that are well suited to the region, the mostly hand-picked range includes Italian, Spanish and classic French styles made with a ‘non-commercial’ approach, where characterful wines are encouraged. Winemaking and bottling are completed within the estate. All wines can be purchased online.

The venue is purposely built for guests to capture fantastic views of vineyards, the Darling Ranges and adjacent rural surroundings. The design and building materials reflect a style and blend of rustic Australian ambience.

The vines were mostly planted in 1941, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Merlot, Chenin & Chardonnay and later, Shiraz. The first vintage in 2001 reaped gold medals for the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc at the 2002 Swan Valley Wine Show.

The panoramic views of the Darling Ranges are matched only by the fresh, seasonal produce on the menu, offering freshly-baked bread served with truffle oil to a drool-worthy red wine-braised beef cheek and seasonal delights.

Description

One of Margaret River’s founding five estates, Cape Mentelle was established in 1970 by regional pioneer David Hohnen and his brothers Mark and Giles. In 1983 Cape Mentelle won Australia’s most coveted wine award, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Award for its Cabernet Sauvignon and cemented its position as a premium producer when it won it again the following year. This was huge, not just for Cape Mentell, but also for the youthful Margaret River wine region.

Today Cape Mentelle forms part of the LVMH group (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) and its wines remain some of the region’s most critically acclaimed. James Halliday says they are, “knocking on the door of the Winery of the Year Award.” Environmental sustainability is a key driver within the vineyards and winery and Cape Mentelle was WA’s first member into Australian wine sustainability program, Entwined. To achieve this certification the vineyard utilises the most natural viticulture techniques.

The Wines
The critically-acclaimed wine range is focused around Margaret River’s signature varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (and blends), Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Chardonnay. An historic Zinfandel is made too, from vines planted in 1974 which were brought out directly from California to the Cape Mentelle Vineyard.

Wine Tasting
The cellar door is one of the region’s original to be made with rammed earth. Located just five minutes towards the coast from Margaret River town, guests can enjoy tasting experiences starting from $10. A Behind the Scenes Tour and Behind the Scenes Tour with Food and Wine Pairing Experience run on weekdays, offering the unique opportunity to explore behind the winery walls of one of the region’s most famous estates. Open daily 10am – 5pm.

Unique Highlights
Nostalgia enthusiasts will love the photo collection lining the barrel hall behind the cellar door. It features images remembering the early days of establishing Cape Mentelle and the Margaret River wine region. The whole family can enjoy picnic facilities, dedicated activities areas for children and estate’s petanque courts. Similar to bocce, this game originated in 1907 in Provence, Southern France. The courts are free to use, boules can be borrowed from the cellar door.

Since 1982 Cape Mentelle has hosted the region’s most renowned Cabernet event. The Cape Mentelle International Cabernet Tasting is a blind tasting that features a selection of Cabernets from the world’s finest cabernet producing regions; Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Tuscany and Margaret River. Tickets sell quickly to industry and media, but every year a few lucky members of the public can come along to this amazing event too. Visit Cape Mentelle’s website for details.

  • Facilities:Cellar Door,Dogs Welcome
  • Margaret River:Yallingup
  • Established:1997

Description

The historic property was originally a primary stop for travellers journeying between Perth and Margaret River on horse and buggy, a trip taking about three days. Some years later it became a dairy property. During this time whalers who moored their ships in the sheltered waters of Smith’s Beach would visit to purchase vegetables grown in the valley’s alluvial soils.

In 1970 the surrounding land was discovered to be rich in mineral sands and was purchased by a mining company. Prior to operations beginning, the government declared the land a national park, prohibiting any mining. In 1980 the property was purchased by winemaker Craig Brent-White. Vines were planted in 1997. 

THE WINES
The valley's rich variety of soil types and coastal aspect give the wines character and depth. This is accentuated by the bio-dynamic philosophies the vineyard follows to take advantage of the property’s soils, maritime location and abundance of clean ocean air from the Roaring Forties. (Strong westerly winds found in the Southern Hemisphere.)

The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The red wines are made in a traditional style for age-ability. The wines have won many awards, with a highlight being the Torpedo Rocks Cabernet Merlot 2009 being named Best Red from a Single Vineyard at London’s International Wine & Spirits competition in 2011.

The Cellar Door is open daily.

Description

In 2004 Sam Castelli purchased land and a partially finished winery building on what is now the Castelli Estate, with the intention of using it as a family holiday home.  After finishing the winery building, Sam decided to continue what the previous owners had started and turned it into an operating winery after all. So began a bright and star-studded journey. 

Sam Castelli didn’t stop the construction at a winery. The estate now boasts a cellar door which is open Wednesday to Monday, 11am to 4 pm, and an authentic Italian restaurant which is open Wednesday to Monday 12 pm to 3:30 pm for lunch and  Fridays and Saturdays 6pm to 9:30pm for dinner.  And also the newly renovated accomodation just next to the restaurant, with five Deluxe king size en-suites and expansive views over Mt Lindsay, the vineyards, and the green rolling hills and Karri trees so typical of the Denmark countryside.

The Wines
The wines are made by local winemaker Mike Garland and are consistently awarded high scores from national wine press, and enjoy medals and trophies at wine shows around Australia.

Five ranges of wine are sourced exclusively from the Home Block vineyard in Denmark, and vineyards in Mt Barker, Pemberton, The Porongurups and Frankland River.

Wines available to try and purchase include riesling, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, shiraz, cabernet, grenache, a sparkling and a dessert wine.  The winery also makes a selection of alternate varietal wines, including an orange chardonnay and an iced viognier.
