Fodor's Review

One of the "founding five" wineries in the area, Cape Mentelle planted its 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 have a one-hour Behind the Scenes tour (A$25), and a degustation tour and tasting (A$80) Monday–Wednesday, and Friday and Saturday at 11:30 am (less frequent May–October). In summer enjoy a balmy evening of food, wine, and film at the winery's outdoor movie nights.
