Overview
More
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 wine tasting in our rammed earth Cellar Door set amongst native gardens, or book in for a Behind the Scenes Tour for $25 for 80 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 $85 150 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.

I do not believe that charging $10/person for a tasting is appropriate. Cellar door should be the opportunity to sample, free of charge - it is their advertising. The one SSB we did have was not to my taste at all. An example of a...More
