Vasse Felix was established in 1967 and is Margaret River’s founding wine estate.
Margaret River is a wine paradise, the unique combination of pristine isolation, ancient soils and twin oceans, makes the region ideal for growing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. As international demand for these varieties from Margaret River continues to grow, Vasse Felix with it’s history, vision and the quality of it’s entire portfolio – is positioned perfectly to maintain its reputation as the region’s leading wine estate.
Vasse Felix produced Margaret River’s first Cabernet Sauvignon at the Estate in 1972 and the wines maintain a reputation as regional and national benchmarks.
Founder Dr Tom Cullity searched the region relentlessly for his first vineyard site, before selecting 8 acres in Wilyabrup, which today remains at the heart of the Vasse Felix estate. Vineyard expansions have been made with equal consideration and an unwavering commitment to Cullity’s simple founding aim; “to make the best possible wine.”
All winemaking from vine to bottle is controlled within the estate. Fruit is harvested, fermented and matured in small, separate parcels before each barrel is graded, trial blended and allocated to its final wine, working from the Icon wines, through the Premier and Regional tiers.
Everyone is welcome to visit the Vasse Felix Estate, which is regarded as one of Australia’s draw-card winery destination experiences and includes a restaurant, cellar door, wine lounge, art gallery and museum space – ‘The Vault’.
