“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.

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😂

Shoutout to Sandra, our guide, who was so lovely and informative. We opted for the "behind the cellar door" tour and were rewarded with a wholesome tour around their vineyards & factory. We had a great time with the wine tasting at the end too; really appreciated the extra details and profiling done for each wine and also getting to try 6 different types. The wines here were really great!

Very nice vineyard tucked away from the main street. We came a little late and hadn't booked and we're given a spot at the Bar for a tasting. Highly recommend booking in advance. If you buy a bottle you won't pay the tasting - and it's well worth it, as the wines are incredible.

Thanks to Jacquie for a terrific wine tasting experience today. Cape Mentelle are producing premium wines - excellent quality fruit flavours, great length and big, full mouth feel. Cape Mentelle are world famous for their Chardonnay & Cabernet Sauvignon and it’s easy to see why. My favourite@ $60 /bottle is the Chardonnay
