Cape Mentelle Review

One of the "founding five" wineries in the area, Cape Mentelle planted their first vines in 1970 on a 16-hectare block just outside Margaret River. Today it's still one of the most notable wineries. The adobe-style rammed-earth building and tasting rooms, so typical of the buildings in the Margaret River district, are as handsome and memorable as the wine. The winery produces chardonnay, sauvignon blanc/semillon, Botrytis Viognier (dessert wine), cabernet/merlot, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, and zinfandel wines. They also offer a Behind the Scenes tour (A$25), and a degustation tour and tasting (A$80) Monday–Wednesday and Friday–Saturday at 11:30 am (less frequent May–October). In summer enjoy a balmy evening of food, wine, and film at the winerie's outdoor movie nights.
