Leeuwin Estate, Margaret River

In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan in the transformation of their cattle farm into Leeuwin Estate. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay. The " Art Series" Chardonnay is frequently rated in Australia and abroad as Australia's best Chardonnay. The "Siblings" and "Prelude" range offer superb quality and flavour.

"Leeuwin estate is a class act, every facet of its business working with the precision of a swiss watch. It stands at the very forefront of estate-based, family-owned wineries..."
