Vasse Felix Winery
The Matriarch of the Margaret River wine region.
Established in 1967, Vasse Felix was the region’s first modern vineyard. Today the estate has expanded into four separate vineyards with each one specialising in authentic blends of Margaret River grapes. Vasse Felix offers daily wine tours, wine tastings, and dining facilities that are open to the public every day from 10 AM to 5 PM. Reservations are recommended due to the limited number of places available for each group. Because the tour hours for each of the four vineyards varies, it is possible to indulge in more than one tour during a single visit. The elaborate, contemporary, Art Gallery is housed in the meticulously preserved site of the original winery and barrel hall.
