The Margaret River can thank its wine legacy to a cardiologist from Perth. It was 1967 when Dr. Tom Cullity, after a year searching and scouring endless sites, finally found what he believed to be his ideal land of “red gravel in redgum country, with clay about 18 inches below the surface.”

Vasse Felix Winery - Where it All Began
The plot was $75 an acre and with the acquisition of eight acres, he began the first vineyard in the region, called Vasse Felix. Now Vasse Felix is one of Margaret River’s most acclaimed wineries and one of its most welcoming and sophisticated estates. You’ll know the minute you park and view the striking modern art sculptures installed around the property. The original underground cellar is open to the public, with an archive of Vasse Felix and Margaret River wine history. Taste the winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon (and Cabernet blends), Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blends in its elegant windowed tasting room, or stay for lunch in its fine dining restaurant.
