FOUR SPECIALTY VINEYARDS
Vasse Felix has four distinct and exceptional vineyards located in selected sites throughout Margaret River, including the region's oldest vineyard - our Home Vineyard in the Wilyabrup area. This vineyard collection grows fruit for the entire Vasse Felix wine family.
Each vineyard is matched to the best possible varieties and clones, and farmed sustainably using traditional and organic practices. By nurturing our soils, we achieve better plant health and balance which leads to higher quality fruit. We don't use synthetic herbicides, fungicides, pesticides or fertilisers.
The varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
A constant focus on soil biology and environmental health is maintained in all vineyards. This is enhanced with Margaret River’s natural suitability to viticulture as a result of it’s climatic and environmental attributes.
Some examples from the environmental program include:
Natural Fertilisers A natural compost program is operated for recycling matter. This fertile mixture is used for topsoil enrichment.
Weed Control Sheep grazing of pastures at Carbunup vineyard throughout winter offers natural weed management.
Water Catchments The sole water supply for Vasse Felix comes from dams and rainwater tanks.
