Vasse Felix  

It’s hard to imagine that there was a time that we didn’t yet know the joys of Aussie reds with restraint and class (we do love those juicy stunners too, don’t get us wrong). It was in the 1960s that a UC Davis professor by the name of Harold Holmo reported on the virtues of Australia’s southwest region and then Dr. John Gladstones with the University of Western Australia preached about the Margaret River region’s climatic similarities to Bordeaux, France. It was then only a matter of time before some enterprising people would take the leap and plant Bordeaux varietals… Let us introduce you to him; meet Dr. Thomas Cullity. He began planting vines in the region’s red gravel soils in 1965, establishing the Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Malbec and Riesling vineyards that would become the Vasse Felix vineyards and Margaret River’s first and oldest vines. The rest is, as they say, history, and their knock-your-socks-off wines prove it!
