About

Vasse Felix was established in 1967 and is Margaret River’s founding wine Estate. Margaret River experiences the unique combination of a Mediterranean climate, maritime influence and ancient gravel-loam soils making it ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Vasse Felix wines are recognised benchmarks in Margaret River and Australia, and the Estate is one of the country’s draw-card winery destinations. Everyone is welcome to taste their way through all Vasse Felix wines at our Cellar Door. All current vintage wines are available to taste, complimentary.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Vasse Felix is located in the Wilyabrup ‘sub-region’ of Margaret River. Vasse Felix vineyards are also located to the north of the region in Carbunup, and to the south, in Karridale.

The vineyard sites have been selected for their unique topography, micro-climates and natural irrigation. The best suited grape varieties have been matched to each vineyard, and specific rows and blocks have been planted to correspond with topography and soil type.

HOME VINEYARD

Soils: Deep gravel loam soil over clay.

Unique Site Influences: Located in Wilyabrup, the fruit is typified by its superb balance.

ADAMS ROAD VINEYARD

Soils: Deep red to pale sandy loam with gravel and clay in isolated areas.

Unique Site Influences: Situated in Carbunup, this vineyard receives slightly warmer temperatures through the growing season. Fruit is characteristically riper and richer in flavour.

GNARAWARY VINEYARD

Soils: Gently undulating gravel and sandy loam.

Unique Site Influences: Gnarawary Vineyard is located in Walcliffe in the heart of the Margaret River region. The Vineyard's climate is moderated by its surrounding land mass to produce excellent fruit with fine acidity, elegance and balance.

KARRIDALE VINEYARD

Soils: Sandy loam with a deep top soil over high calcium clay.

Unique Site Influences: Experiences a slightly cooler climate due to sea breezes off the Southern Ocean and increased cloud cover. This provides an extended ripening period for whites, and the fruit is characterised by more elevated perfume and higher natural acidity.
