A Margaret River icon established in 1970, Cape Mentelle is one of the region's founding five wineries. Cape Mentelle pioneered many of Margaret River's renowned wine styles and today is a benchmark for the quality of the region's wines. Visit us for a free wine tasting in our rammed earth Cellar Door set amongst native gardens, or book in for a Behind the Scenes Tour for $25 for 60 minutes, walking through the wine making process from the vine to the bottle and explaining what we do to make Cape Mentelle wine so unique. Or extend to an $84 120 minute behind the scenes tour that is followed by a degustation, providing a food and wine pairing experience. This private wine tasting matches a selection of delicious local produce to Cape Mentelle wines in our historic Cabernet Cellar. Cape Mentelle also screens outdoor movies under the stars during summer, complete with bean bags, a food truck and a bar, check our Movies at Cape Mentelle Facebook page for the programme and booking information.

We really enjoued our tasting at Cape Mentelle. It is beautiful and the wine simply world class. I wouldn't call it cheap but it is certainly somewhere not to miss if you're doing wineries in the area!

Pulling up in the Car park, you then walk over a small bridge which crosses a lovely brook and then you enter the grounds of this estate. Lovely setting complete with outdoor event big screen. The winery itself showcases all the different vintages. Tastings available free of charge. Wines were ok but nothing really exceptional apart from the CabSav and... More

Julie provided a most insightful "Behind the Scenes" tasting/tour, which was truly a notch above any similar experience we have had over the years gone by. Beyond her obvious expertise in describing the science of crafting fine wine, she also brought forward stimulating conversation for the pairings of superb Cape Mentelle wines provided, matched to delicious locally sourced food. Well... More

Among the many winery tour/visit options, we 'randomly' chose Cape Mentelle 'Guided tour and tasting experience' - what a fortunate choice! As it turned out, we were the only two on the two and a half hour tour. We went into the vineyard and looked at some of the oldest vines (cabernet) which were planted late 1960s or early 1970s....
