Description

Aravina Estate was established in 2010 by Perth businessman and sixth generation West Australian, Steve Tobin. Named one of Australia’s “Ten Best New Wineries” (2014) by James Halliday, Aravina Estate offers a mix of memorable experiences for the whole family. While adults enjoy the distinct, quality, regional wines, kids love the European-designed-playground and museums.

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.

Wine Tasting
Sample and learn about the wines at the Cellar Door. As there are so many wines to taste, we do charge a $6 tasting fee per person, which is deducted from any wine purchase and complimentary if dining in our restaurant.

Culinary Experiences
The Aravina Estate Restaurant offers fine-dining in an elegant, “Vogue-living” style setting, as reviewed by local critic Rob Broadfield from The West Australian. The menu focuses on local, sustainable produce, sourced from a growing collection of local farmers, as well as estate grown produce. The dishes are designed to pair with the Aravina Estate wines. Bookings are recommended, especially during holiday periods. For something more casual, unwind on the lawn and enjoy a Aravina grazing board or Pizza from our newly opened Pizza Bar. Visit on the weekends and enjoy live gigs on the lawn for the whole family to enjoy.

Unique Highlights
After indulging in stunning food and wine, discover the orchards, gardens and museums too. The Car Museum has an ever-changing range of European classics and Australian muscle cars on display.


The WA Surf Museum chronicles the local surf culture and history with an impressive collection of vintage surfboards and cool memorabilia to check out.

Cape Naturaliste Vineyard

A boutique winemaker focused on bio-dynamic philosophies, located in a 19th century coach house that was originally an inn for horse and cart travellers between Perth and Margaret River.

  • Open Days/times:10:30am - 5pm Everyday
  • Wine Variety:Rosé,Cabernet Merlot,Cabernet Sauvignon,Merlot,Muscat,Sauvignon Blanc,Semillon Sauvignon Blanc,Shiraz

  • Facilities:Cellar Door,Dogs Welcome
  • Cellar Door Open:Friday,Saturday,Sunday,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday
  • Cases Produced:5000
  • Vineyards:10.7 hectares
  • Winemaker:Bruce Dukes, Craig Brent-White

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.
