Established in 1976, Willespie is one of the original vineyards in the Margaret River region. They are one of the few remaining family established, owned and run wineries in the region with three generations of family now involved in the winery.

Willespie sits in a beautiful and prestigious part of Margaret River in the Wilyabrup 'golden triangle' region.

The name Willespie, blends the region Wilyabrup and the French word, espérer, meaning ‘to hope’. Located on Harmans Mill Road, Wilyabrup, Willespie sits in a beautiful and prestigious part of Margaret River in the Wilyabrup sub-region. The forty years of hard work and dedication taken to build Willespie, the ‘Wilyabrup hope’, is a true credit to the founders, Kevin and Marian Squance. Willespie produce wines that reflect the vineyard’s terroir, the sunshine hours and the natural rainfall of the region. 

Willespie began their journey in 1976, when school teachers Kevin and Marian Squance and their four children, planted 3.9 hectares of Verdelho, Semillon, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. Now Willespie consists of 32 acres of plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and Riesling. The vineyard is dry grown and celebrating 40 years since the first plantings. Now, forty years and many accolades later, the vineyard has gracefully grown in size along with the four Squance children – Trish, Jenni, Michele and Darren. Along with their own families, they have now taken over the reins to this unique piece of land in the Margaret River wine region.

Incredibly beautiful winery with impressively knowledgeable staff. Romain was very friendly and easy to get along with, but also giving us an understanding of the way the wines are grown and made. His knowledge and experience made the whole tasting wonderful, and there wasn't a wine we didn't enjoy. I'm primarily a red wine drinker but enjoyed multiple white wines and even took a Late Harvest home with me. I could not recommend this place enough. If you could only choose one winery in the region, make it Willespie. Serine Meredith

This was amazing. We tasted a lot of different wines and they were all lovely. After it we ordered a bottle of wine and enjoyed the view on the balcony. Thanks Jo, we had a lovely day! Sanne Bakker
