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.

Told by another winery, that Willespie was worth a visit. Especially as I enjoy wineries that give the hands on approach, compared to a mechanised version. Was not disappointed, in fact, well worth the experience and wines that speak volumes about all who work under the Willespie brand, well done. You excel in both white and reds, an absolute pleasure to drink.

VISIT HERE! I had never heard of Willespie before but after visiting I have been recommending it to everyone. Vintage wines at such an affordable price. Tanya was so lovely and accomodating. They had the BEST fortified wines. I visited Xanadu and Leeuwin Estate that same day and Willespie topped them both!

Very affordable wine, nice people and great spot, however I'm afraid we didn't find wine which suited our palates.

Came by because some of their wines have a high rating on Vivino. Tried a flight of wine and got the Shiraz 2018 and Carb Sauv 2013. The shiraz was my favourite. Bold in flavours and fruitiness. Their wines specialise with a hint of chalkiness that apparently comes from the particular region its grown in. Jo was really friendly and helpful in explaining all the wines during the testing. The wine tasting is free if you buy a bottle from them.
