Today is all about Vasse Felix where you will indulge in one of the most celebrated wine experiences in Australia!

Here you are going to explore the world of food and wine at Margaret River’s founding wine estate. The ultimate vine to table tour for the gourmet adventurer, this immersive experience includes the rare opportunity to explore behind the scenes at Vasse Felix.

Beginning in the region’s oldest vineyard, learn how Vasse Felix grows fruit in the most sustainable way with an introduction to organics and the unique environment that makes Margaret River exceptional for growing and making fine wine. Pass by Margaret River’s original Cabernet vines before you go behind the scenes with exclusive access to the Vasse Felix winery. Explore the barrel hall and world of artful and innovative winemaking, before joining your host for a private tasting of the Vasse Felix Wine Collection.

From here, the chef’s five course tasting menu, paired with rare Vasse Felix Icon wines brings your full Margaret River gastronomy experience together. Relax and while away the hours with mind-blowing interpretations of incredible local produce, uncovering the chefs’ philosophies of wine and food pairing along the journey.

We then head to Margaret River township for a guided walking tour.  A great opportunity to get acquainted with the area whilst sampling local produce as part of a “walking dinner” experience.

Then back to the hotel and to bed you go as tomorrow there is more!

Overnight accommodation: Smiths Beach Resort

First up, it is time for us to head to Clairault Streicker, where you will blend your own wine! You will delve deeper into the world of winemaking with an interactive Wine Blending Experience. You will be guided through the wine blending process to help create your own estate-grown Margaret River wine. Learn the theory behind why wines are blended then measure, mix and taste a wine perfectly suited to you.

It is then time to head to Cullen Wines, the only biodynamic and carbon positive winery in the region. Here it is time to see a different way of winemaking with biodynamic traditions being the driving force overarching every facet. It is a method of farming that treats the vineyard as a living system, which interacts with the environment to build a healthy living soil that helps to nourish the vines and general environment. You will experience this first hand and enjoy tasting the wines and a delicious platter lunch of local produce. Ask as many questions as you need to about this fascinating process.

This evening, after chilling out at the hotel, get ready for our final wine visit at Passel Estate. Co-owner and professional cello player Wendy Stimpson will share her beautiful music and her passion for wine while we indulge in some delicious canapes and taste her wines – rounding out what has been a superb escape.
