Celebrating the combination of fine wine, food, art and music, Leeuwin Estate features an award winning restaurant, cellar door and art gallery. The Estate is renowned for staging spectacular events and welcoming visitors from around the world.
Family owned, Leeuwin Estate, one of the five founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia, is under the direction of two generations who work with a team of highly skilled winemakers to consistently produce wines ranking alongside the world’s finest.
In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan in the transformation of their cattle farm into Leeuwin Estate. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1981 “Art Series” Chardonnay. The international accolades have continued and Leeuwin now exports to 30 markets.
The Leeuwin Restaurant maintains the food philosophy of combining exceptional seasonal West Australian produce, focusing on flavour, texture and aromas, with current and museum release Leeuwin Estate wines. With sweeping verandahs, the restaurant overlooks a meadow surrounded by a forest of majestic karri trees.
The Leeuwin “Wine Room”, is available for private dining group bookings.
Leeuwin first developed an association with the arts fraternity when launching the famous “Art Series” wine labels. The collection now comprises over 150 paintings and artworks from artists including John Olsen, Arthur Boyd, Sir Sidney Nolan, Lloyd Rees, Albert Tucker, Fred Williams, Robert Juniper, Clifton Pugh and Imants Tillers, with most on display in the Leeuwin Estate Art Gallery.
