To the south of Cape Naturaliste, in a picturesque valley behind Smith's Beach, nestles Cape Naturaliste Vineyard.

The valley's rich variety of soil types are ideal for the growing of premium wine grapes. Our maritime location, with grapes cooled on the vines by clean air from the Roaring 40's, gives our wine character and depth.

The property now known as Cape Naturaliste Vineyard started life as the coach inn for travelers journeying between Perth and Margaret River on horse and buggy – a journey taking about 3 days - a history going back 150 years. Some later years the property then became a dairy known as Thorn Hill. During this time Whale ships came into the sheltered waters of Smiths Beach to purchase vegetables grown in the valleys rich alluvial soil.

In 1970 the surrounding land was discovered to be rich in mineral sands. A mining company purchased the land with the intention to mine the valley. Fortunately the government stepped in and declared it "A" zone national park.

Cape Naturaliste Vineyard was planted in 1997 by the owner, Craig Brent-White, who purchased the land from a mineral sands company in 1980.

  • Stopped in at our favourite dog friendly cellar to find the fantastic owner having to deal with an ignorant antivaxer. Thank you for stopping her coming in and making us all feel safer.

  • Best of the best - our favourite winery of the Margaret River - great wines and friendly family experience. It just doesn't get better than this. London International Wine Show Winner - Trophy for Best Red from a Single Vineyard 2011 and James Halliday - 5 Star Vineyard. Jennifer was welcoming, warm and friendly and made our experience one to remember (as did her gorgeous pooches, Monty and Max who happily played with other visiting dogs). We were seated outside overlooking the vineyard and our tasting began. Delicious whites and amazing reds - all brought to life by Jennifer. This is a true family business, steeped in history and love. And, great that you can buy wine for shipping across Australia.
  • Group of 16, One lady Jen was amazing, no problem, Sat outside on the lovely verandah, a very relaxed vibe and not pretentious at all, wine was also very good, highly recommended
