Happs

Western Australia | Margaret River

James' Review

One-time schoolteacher, potter and winemaker Erl Happ is the patriarch of a three-generation family. More than anything, Erl has been a creator and experimenter, building the self-designed winery from mudbrick, concrete form and timber, and making the first crusher. In 1994 he planted a new 30ha vineyard at Karridale to no less than 28 varieties, including some of the earliest plantings of tempranillo in Australia. The Three Hills label is made from varieties grown at this vineyard. Erl passed on to his son Myles his love of pottery, and Happs Pottery now has four potters, including Myles. Exports to the US, Denmark, The Netherlands, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China and Japan.

About

Happs Wines is a brand for the people. We fly in the face of convention in terms of how many wines we make and what varieties we make them from. Our pleasure is found in providing a wine for every palate and we have built a portfolio to achieve this. Our cellar door is rustic and welcoming, our smiles are genuine and our customers are loyal. We export to eight countries and are hoping to expand our reach in the years to come. Welcome to Happs.
