Happs Pottery & Winery

Happs Pottery & Winery Review

Hand-made mudbricks, recycled timbers, and stained-glass windows point to the origins of this family-owned and built winery. A few kilometers from Dunsborough you'll find a friendly welcome, a huge range of wines to taste (33 at last reckoning) and—unique in this area—a pottery gallery in the same building. Erl Happ began his pottery business in 1970 then planted his first vines eight years later, going against local wisdom by planting merlot. Later, a second vineyard was established near Karridale some 90 km (55 miles) to the south, with 31 varieties of grape, its wines produced under the Three Hills label. Free tastings allow you to try some wines only available at the cellar door, such as Fuchsia and preservative free wines. His daughter-in-law Jacquie runs the pottery, his wife Roslyn has created a much photographed garden courtyard, and son Myles works at the home studio, producing what is described as the biggest collection of pottery in the area.
