In the heart of Margaret River in Western Australia, Vasse Felix proudly celebrates half a century.

02 June 2022


As 2022 vintage in Australia draws to a close, Vasse Felix in the stunning Margaret River region of Western Australia kicks on with celebrations for the 50th anniversary of its first wine – the 1972 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec, created by founder Dr Tom Cullity.

Now simply referred to as the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon, this special drop has been produced every year since 1972. A single, precious bottle remains from its first year of production, now on display in the Vasse Felix Vault Museum.

The Estate has come a long way since its pioneering days as the first winery in the Margaret River region and is now one of Australia’s draw-card winery destination experiences, including a restaurantcellar door and art gallery.

Take a journey beyond the cellar door during The Cellar Experience, a historical tour of Vasse Felix, including the old vines.

Enjoy exclusive access to The Vault, home of the renowned Vasse Felix wine museum, for a special tasting of cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay with charcuterie.


Now that you’ve whet your appetite, continue on to the Vasse Felix restaurant for a delectable three-course lunch, showcasing fresh local produce paired with wines, including a glass of back-vintage cabernet sauvignon or chardonnay.

Make a full day of it with the definitive Margaret River experience, the Cape to Vine Day Trip. Experience the power of the Indian Ocean and the unique, pristine flora and fauna of the region on this walking tour with award-winning track specialists, Cape to Cape Explorer Tours.

Discover Margaret River’s natural secrets, ancient granite boulders, limestone cliffs and breathtaking swimming spots.

After working up a sweat exploring the wonders of the track, indulge your senses on a private tour of Vasse Felix, a tasting of the wine collection, and an indulgent food and wine pairing at the Vasse Felix Restaurant – one of Australia’s most awarded establishments.

Meet the chef while enjoying a five-course tasting menu paired with Icon wines, before selecting your choice of a bottle of Vasse Felix Premier wine to take away and share with your friends and family.
