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.

Visited Cape Mentelle Wines for the outdoor movies held that Saturday night. The beanbags and blanket were a must as it did get chilly. The food and drinks on offer were fantastic and not over priced. Plenty of parking also. Great night I would definitely recommend! Make sure you get your tickets before-hand as they're often sold out on the... More

Dear Anna, Great to read that you enjoyed your 'Movies at Cape Mentelle' experience on Saturday night. Thank you also for sharing your recommendations on booking early, as we have indeed had quite a few sold out nights already in January. Hope to see you again soon. Best regards, Cameron More

This one does not have the grand display of gardens etc that some have but the wines are excellent. This is a must stop for some great tasting and make sure to take some home.

We had a lovely time tasting the wines at Cape Mentelle. Our wine assistant, Rachel, was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The atmosphere was nice and the wines excellent. Well worth a visit if you are in the Margaret River region.
