Fabulous Ladies
Margaret River Tour 2024

2 – 7 Nov 2024

In partnership with Travelling Divas


Always wanted to visit the wineries of Margaret River? Now’s your chance to do it in the most fabulous way! Our luxurious tour of this sophisticated and globally revered wine region is taking place again this November. It’s an even longer tour this year – there’s so much to see and do in Margaret River that we’ve extended it by an extra day!

One of the only wine regions in the world where the vineyards back up against sparkling blue ocean, Margaret River is home to some of the world’s most spectacular cellar doors and produces some of the most exceptional wines on the planet.

With every detail of this intimate tour organised to give you the most fabulous experience, we will be taking you to visit some truly incredible wineries that feature world-leading women in wine. Like…

  • Vanya Cullen, Cullen Wines
  • Virginia Wilcock, Vasse Felix
  • Alex Burt, Voyager Estate
  • Wendy Stimpson, Passel Estate

Plus, there’s delicious fine dining, ridiculously beautiful vineyards, special experiences (like your own private wine blending session!) and gorgeous hotels to stay at – including the QT in Perth and the Smiths Beach Resort in Margaret River, a member of Small Luxury Hotels.

As always, our wine tours focus on women in wine, are conducted in partnership with our friends at Travelling Divas and are fully escorted by FLWS founder Jane Thomson OAM. With a maximum of just 12 guests, our tours are both intimate and loads of fun! They also happen to be the ONLY all-women wine tours in Australia.

Come on your own and make new friends for life, or book in with a friend or two – single and twin share options are both available. We can’t wait to host you for the ultimate wine experience in Margaret River this November.

Tour Highlights Include
  • Privately hosted dining and tasting events at the region’s most esteemed wineries (which also happen to be women-led!)

After a leisurely breakfast at the resort, and maybe a morning walk on the beach, we are whisking you off for a (nearly) full day at Margaret River’s original winery, and one of the most renowned, Vasse Felix. Chief winemaker Virginia Wilcock is considered one of the best winemakers in the world and she has been with Vasse Felix for the last two decades.

The day begins with a tour of the Vasse Felix estate tour, followed by a private guided tasting in their famous art gallery! So divine! This will really give you the chance to appreciate the quality of these incredible wines. The wonderful Virginia is hoping to join us for this as she did last year. You’ll then be treated to an exquisite lunch (with matched wines) at the highly acclaimed Vasse Felix restaurant where we’ll wile away the afternoon together over some of the regions best food – and more wine!

We’ll pop into a smaller woman-led winery for on our way back to Smith’s to end our glorious day. Dinner at Lamont’s again tonight ensures we don’t need to move too far this evening!

DAY 4 – Tuesday 5 November

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to blend your own wine? This morning after breakfast, the amazing team at Clairault-Streicker, led by Australian Women in Wine Cellar Door Person of the Year winner Ulrika Larsson, are going to be opening their cellar door just for us (it’s normally closed on Tuesdays). We’ll have the whole place to ourselves to be led through our very own, very fabulous and incredibly educational wine blending session. Ulrika and her team will guide you through the process, and then you make your very own bottle of wine that you’ll be naming and taking away with you at the end of the morning!

With your wine bottle all safely sealed with a cork, we’ll then be taking you to Cullen Wines where Vanya Cullen will herself be hosting us for a glorious tasting and lunch in her cellar door restaurant with matched wines she’s chosen. Vanya is an amazing hostess and is full of stories of her family’s history, estate and biodynamic winemaking philosophy. You’ll get a really in-depth understanding of how and why Cullen is a world leader, as well as a  Margaret River icon, and why Vanya Cullen is such a revered and award winning winemaker.

Then it’s back to our gorgeous beach apartments for a relax, some more beach time and a light supper in-house.

More relaxed mornings, more days filled with wine and food! Wednesday we have a full day at the incredible Voyager Estate. Not only are the vineyards here sublime, but the gardens and buildings are like something out of a fairy tale. Beginning with a private, guided tour of the vineyards and estate, we’ll then progress to a guided tasting so you can learn about the wine styles and production methods. We’ll then a enjoy a long lunch in their glorious restaurant, with the amazing Alexandra Burt (Voyager’s owner) joining us!

Later that day, for our grand finale in Margaret River, we head to the gorgeous Passel Estate for a private, after hours reception hosted by owner Wendy Stimpson, with a masterclass tasting and light platters to finish the day. Wendy’s wines are just sublime and there’s a wonderful conservation story behind her whole brand that she’ll share with us herself.
