Vasse Felix is Margaret River’s founding wine estate, established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity. Owned and operated by the Holmes à Court family since 1987, Paul Holmes à Court has brought the focus to Margaret River’s key varieties of cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock has energised the winemaking and viticultural team with her no-nonsense approach and fierce commitment to quality. Vasse Felix has four scrupulously managed vineyards throughout Margaret River that contribute all but a small part of the annual production. Wines include icons Tom Cullity (cabernet blend) and Heytesbury Chardonnay as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Shiraz; Filius Chardonnay and Filius Cabernet Sauvignon; Classic Dry White and Classic Dry Red, plus limited quantities of Cane Cut Semillon and Blanc de Blancs. Exports to all major markets.
Established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity, Vasse Felix is Margaret River's founding wine estate. Unrivalled experience as a vigneron in Margaret River 'wine paradise,' with its pristine isolation, ancient lands and twin oceans has led Vasse Felix to adopt organic principles across its four vineyards with NASAA organic certification underway. This builds upon the Estate’s reputation for minimal intervention and ‘small batch’ winemaking, as an intuitive progression to achieve Dr Tom Cullity’s original aim, ‘to make the best possible wine’. Everyone is welcome to visit the renowned Vasse Felix Estate, which offers a range of experiences to immerse oneself in Margaret River’s wine, food, culture and history.
