Cape Grace Wines

Star 4.9 (45 Google reviews)

One of the great little wineries of Margaret River. Growing under the house flag of a pioneering South West Family, located a stone's throw from the stars of the Wilyabrup Valley lies Cape Grace's carefully tended vineyard from which boutique, handcrafted, basket pressed wines are made. Cape Grace produces less than 2000 cases of wine.
Cape Grace Wines is 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 Lighthouse 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 includes: 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 winemaking 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.

Visited Cape Grace Winery looking for a small, local wine tasting and definitely found it here. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting, setting and conversation with Karen. We were fortunate there were 2 bottles of vintages that we were able to taste and compare to their younger harvest, which was good fun. Neither of us are wine connoisseurs, but with the approachable explanations for each tasting, Karen (and her little dog Rusty) made us feel right at home.

Not a wine drinker but enjoyed their cane cut chenin blanc, that our group ended up buying a number of bottles to be shared with our families back in the Philippines. Very welcoming host.

What a wonderful little winery. Most welcoming and really enjoyed our time here. Wine was all amazing and the reds even managed to convert 2 non wine drinkers 🙂 definitely give it a go if you're in the area

Brilliant family-run small vinyard, so glad we stopped here! Authentic, unpretentious cellar door which is a hidden gem with a fabulous host who made us feel at home - ended up staying longer than we expected, and the wines were delicious (great for both white and red!) Looking forward to our wine delivery! Would highly recommend.
