Description

Cape Mentelle, established in 1970, is one of the founding wineries of Margaret River. While pioneering many of the region’s renowned wine styles, Cape Mentelle also consistently serves as a benchmark for the quality of Margaret River wines. Accolades including consecutive wins of Australia’s most prestigious wine trophy, the Jimmy Watson, with the iconic Cabernet Sauvignon in 1983 and 1984, helped put Margaret River on the international wine map. Today, our tradition of pioneering spirit and uncompromising commitment to excellence is being upheld by our talented and innovative young team.

As a guest at Cape Mentelle, you can be assured that we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. Our 200 hectares of estate vineyards are managed with a sustainable viticulture philosophy, meaning as close to organic as possible. This philosophy extends through the winery and waste management practices.

Our warm and friendly Cellar Door staff welcome guests 7 days a week from 10:00 to 5:00. Visitors are encouraged to taste through our range of available wines, including museum stock and cellar door exclusives. After some tasting, relax in our native bushland gardens or play a game of Pétanque (a version of boules) with family and friends on our purpose built court. If an interest in wine motivates your visit to Margaret River, or develops once you’re here, join one of our exclusive ‘Behind the Scenes’ Vineyard & Winery Tours or ‘Behind the Scenes’ Degustation Tour and Tasting for an in-depth and informative look at the winemaking process from vine to glass.

very pleasant wine tour
It was my first experience of wine tour and I had a really good one. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You can even get inside and look around the oaks. Everything was free and no pressure to purchase at all but I had to buy one anyway, because the wine was so good. A must-do if you visit Margaret River.

Excellent Tour and Degustation
Please note that it is a food with matching wine tasting, don't expect to walk out with a full stomach.

The foods was prepared by external but very well matched with the wine on tasting.

Overall a very wonderful experience and I will recommend it especially to those interested in learning more on wine making process and wine matching with foods.

Degustation and wine tour
We did the winery tour and degustation and tasting. The weather was absolutely awful so we didn't get to spend much time in the vineyard, but my husband and I found the tour very informative, but most of all the degustation and tasting was really lovely. Julie was such a good host. We were lucky to be there with only one other couple. We enjoyed the wines immensely and learnt a lot about pairing our wine with our food. I thought the whole experience was good value for money. The wines were lovely and the food, more than tasty... A+++
