The quintessential Margaret River wine experience exploring the intricacies of Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

This historical tour takes you on an exploration of Margaret River wine at Vasse Felix. Your experience begins with a walking tour of the region’s oldest vines, planted in 1967 by pioneer and Vasse Felix founder Dr Tom Cullity.

After your stroll through the old vines, you’ll gain exclusive access inside The Vault - home of the historic Vasse Felix wine museum - for this special private tasting featuring Margaret River’s leading varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Soak in the cellar surrounds while your host guides you through current vintages of the Vasse Felix Wine Collection, sharing insights into these varieties, including folklore surrounding the region’s first Cabernet (the 1972 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon), ageability and cellaring advice. Your cellar experience will conclude with a tasting of a back vintage Vasse Felix Cabernet and Chardonnay selected for your enjoyment by our Estate Sommelier.

Following the tasting, your journey continues upstairs in the award-winning Vasse Felix Restaurant for the ultimate treat of a five-course tasting menu, showcasing local produce, paired with Icon wines.
