“Margaret River was only a young region when Cape Mentelle claimed the Jimmy Watson trophy in successive years, proving it wasn’t a fluke and that there was something special about this region at the edge of Australia. Cape Mentelle really put Margaret River on the map.” Penny Dickeson, Estate Director
Established in 1970, Cape Mentelle is one of the founding wineries of Margaret River.  While pioneering many of the regions' renowned wine styles, Cape Mentelle also consistently serves as a benchmark for the quality of Margaret River wines. Accolades including consecutive wines of Australias' 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, Cape Mentelles' tradition of pioneering spirit and uncompromising commitment to excellence is being upheld by their talented and innovative young team. 

As a guest at Cape Mentelle, you can be assured that they take their environmental responsibilities seriously. The 120 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.

One of the best cellar door experiences I've had in Oz. Maree was so knowledgeable and passionate about the wines. Tasting in the barrel room is also a nice touch!

AMAZING!!! This is my favourite wine cellar in Margaret River. The staff was super helpful in explaining the different wine characteristics and suggested us delicious wines. My top 3 are: Walcliffe Sauvignon Blanc, Walcliffe Merlot Petit Verdot Malbec & of course Cabernet Sauvignon!!

This winery is very pretty and clean. The staff was knowledgeable. But their wines were not that great. It was more pricier than another winery but another one’s wines were better than this. And it was busy so they didn’t remember what kind of wine we tried and if we don’t ask them any question, they will just tell you about the wines you chose and then leave😂

We enjoyed the tour led by Lee, who was very informative. Though it was not harvesting season, we were able to get a good experience by walking through the vineyards and cellars. We ended the tour with a tasting of 6 wines.
