Overview

One of the great little wineries of Margaret River. Growing under the house flag of a pioneering South West Family, located a stones throw from the stars of the Wilyabrup Valley lies Cape Grace's carefully tended vineyard from which unique, boutique, hand crafted wines are made.

Cape Grace produces less than 2000 cases of wine.

More information

One of the great little wineries of Margaret River, family owned and operated by the Karri- Davies, whose family have been part of the South West since 1875. Robert Karri-Davies is a great-grandson of M.C. Davies of Karridale, Timber Baron, builder of the Leeuwin Lighhouse and instrumental in the founding of Magaret River.

In 1996 Robert and Karen Karri-Davies planted their 15 acre vineyard on the headwaters of the Willyabrup Valley. Just five years later, Cape Grace became a Trophy Winner at the 24th Annual Sheraton Wine Awards for its 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon. With their unique character, depth and style, the wines from this great little winery have continued to receive acclaim - receiving three trophies, and 165 medals and numerous glowing reviews.

The selection of wine include: A dry refreshing Chenin Blanc, a complex wood aged Chardonnay, and a delicious Cane Cut Chenin Blanc Dessert Wine . All the red wines are hand plunged and basket pressed and include Cabernet Franc, a luscious Cabernet Shiraz, an elegant medium bodied Shiraz, and our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon.

These single vineyard wines display a unique sense of place and are only available in the Cellar Door, which is open daily. Here you will meet either Karen or Robert and gain some insight into the trials and joys of being a small winemaker. Visitors stroll through the barrel room, prior to entering the tasting area. Incorporated into the Cellar Door is a Photographic Gallery. Depending on the time of year visitors may see some action in the winery. If time is available a tour of the winery can be arranged and the wine making process explained. Outside, adjacent to the Cellar Door, is Roberts private collection of Australian parrots in a natural bush setting.

Don't miss one of the great little wineries on your visit to Margaret River and put Cape Grace on your list to visit.

I did myself a favor, from the U.S. I traveled to the unique wine region of Margaret River, Western Australia. While there I was fortunate enough to have my own personal sommelier-wine-tour-guide, Eva Evangeline, who unequivocally recommended the boutique tasting experience of Cape Grace Wines & Cellar Door. I recall my first taste of the 2013 Vintage Petit Verdot - dark-red juicy fruits / subtleness of the tannins - I was in wine-nirvana! Equally special were the non-snobbish owners and winemaker who engaged us in the vineyard's history while giving us a private tour of how their award-winning Cape Grace Wines are produced. Before having to leave Western, Australia, twice more I would return to Cape Grace, lastly for a few precious bottles to take home. Thank you, Eva Evangeline, for your enlightening wine knowledge and pointing the way around the tasting rooms and vineyards of Margaret River.

A hidden gem definitely worth visiting. The owners are passionate about their wines and have some styles you won't find elsewhere (like rose with a bit of body).

I found this place by a fluke and am so glad I went. The guy working there was super friendly and the wines were amazing! Best chenin blanc Id ever had. He definitely made my experience and was very keen to talk about the product. A humble little cellar but very good stuff!
