Vasse Felix

Margaret River, WA, Australia

Vasse Felix, established in 1967 by the visionary Dr. Tom Cullity, holds the esteemed title of being Margaret River’s founding wine estate. Located in one of the world’s great wine regions, Vasse Felix benefits from the region’s unique environment and climate, making it a paradise for winemakers and wine enthusiasts alike. Since its inception, the estate has been dedicated to exploring and showcasing the very best that the Margaret River region has to offer.

At Vasse Felix, their wines serve as a reflection of the strengths of Margaret River, with a particular focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Additionally, they produce exceptional Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blends. The grapes are carefully cultivated in their four vineyards situated throughout Margaret River, and then undergo vinification and bottling at their modern winery located at their Home Vineyard, overlooking the picturesque Wilyabrup Brook.

There are numerous factors that contribute to the uniqueness of Vasse Felix. First and foremost, the incredible environment and climate of Margaret River provide an ideal setting for grape cultivation. Their family ownership and cherished heritage also add a special touch to their wines. However, it is the dedication of their entire team that truly sets them apart and drives them to fulfill Dr. Cullity’s original vision of producing the best possible wine.

Margaret River’s pristine isolation, ancient lands, and maritime influence come together to create an optimal environment for growing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Shiraz, and Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc blends. While the region accounts for only 3% of Australia’s total wine production, it commands over 20% of the premium market, with its wines often regarded as international benchmarks.

Each of their wines at Vasse Felix is a testament to the strengths of Margaret River. With minimal intervention, they strive to allow the true expression of the fruit to shine through. Every parcel of fruit is vinified separately, highlighting its unique characteristics and undergoing fermentation with natural yeasts. Their modern winery, located in their Home Vineyard, serves as the hub where each wine is meticulously crafted.

Under the ownership of the Holmes à Court family since 1987, they have expanded their vineyards to encompass four exceptional sites across the Margaret River region. Among them is their Home Vineyard, the oldest vineyard in the region, located in the Wilyabrup area. Each vineyard is thoughtfully matched with the most suitable varieties and clones and farmed sustainably using traditional and organic practices.

 .

.

Their winemaking philosophy is grounded in the belief that great wines are born in the vineyard and should be authentic expressions of their unique terroir. They attribute their success to the collaborative efforts of a passionate team of individuals who work tirelessly to bring forth wines of exceptional quality and character.

In every bottle of Vasse Felix wine, one will find the essence of Margaret River, carefully nurtured and lovingly crafted. Wine enthusiasts are invited to experience the result of their unwavering commitment to excellence and the extraordinary flavors that the beloved region has to offer.
