Established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity, Vasse Felix is Margaret River's founding wine estate.
Pristine isolation, ancient lands and twin oceans make Margaret River a wine paradise and one of the world’s greatest environments to grow ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. These varieties, alongside Shiraz and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends are the primary focus at Vasse Felix.
All wines are grown in Vasse Felix’s four Margaret River vineyards then vinified and bottled within the modern winery, situated at the Home Vineyard overlooking the Wilyabrup Brook.
The Vasse Felix Cellar Door - also located at the Home Vineyard - is renowned. Featuring a tasting room, wine lounge, art gallery, wine museum and one of Australia's most acclaimed restaurants, visitors are welcomed from all around the world, eager for the ultimate Vasse Felix experience.
There are many things that make Vasse Felix the special place it is: the incredible environment and climate of Margaret River, their secure family ownership, their treasured heritage, and their priceless vineyards. But above all, it's the dedication of the entire team to continue Dr Cullity's original aim for Vasse Felix: "to make the best possible wine".
The wines reflect the strengths of Margaret River, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, as well as Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blends. Each parcel of fruit is vinified with minimal intervention and bottled within their modern winery, situated at their Home Vineyard overlooking the Wilyabrup Brook.
Each vineyard is matched to the best possible varieties and clones and farmed sustainably using traditional and organic practices. By nurturing the soils, they achieve better plant health and balance which leads to higher quality fruit. It's a long game with great reward. They don't use synthetic herbicides, fungicides, pesticides or fertilisers.
The varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
A constant focus on soil biology and environmental health is maintained in all vineyards. This is enhanced with Margaret River’s natural suitability to viticulture as a result of its climatic and environmental attributes.
