Vasse Felix has four beautiful vineyards located in selected sites throughout Margaret River, including the region’s oldest vineyard the Home Vineyard in Wilyabrup. The Vasse Felix wines reflect the strengths of Margaret River, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, as well as Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc blends. Wines are bottled within the modern winery, situated at the Home Vineyard overlooking the Wilyabrup Brook.
Under the ownership of the Holmes a Court family since 1987, we have carefully expanded the vineyards to include four distinct and exceptional sites around the Margaret River region, including the region’s oldest vineyard – our Home Vineyard in the Wilyabrup area.
Each Vasse Felix vineyard site has been selected for its unique soil structure, topography and microclimate. The best suited grape varieties have been matched to each vineyard, and specific rows and blocks have been planted to correspond with the above factors.
The flagship Cabernet Sauvignon made at Vasse Felix is made in honour of Dr Thomas Brendan Cullity who established Vasse Felix in 1967. Among his first plantings were Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec vines, from which he produced the Estate’s first red wine. The Tom Cullity descends from these original vines and represents the pinnacle of Vasse Felix.
