Cape Mentelle was one of the original five wineries founded in Western Australia’s Margaret River in 1970 by David Hohnen. Cape Mentelle is recognised not only for its commitment to quality, but for its adherence to organic viticulture and sustainable practices.
The team at Cape Mentelle shares a love for the land and a deep commitment to sustainability. Cape Mentelle is a certified member of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia. From recycling 100% of water used in the winery, increasing biodiversity in the vineyard, and carrying out local clean up initiatives, to installing solar panels on the winery tank roof, sustainability is at the core of every operational and winemaking decision. In 2010, Cape Mentelle was the first winery in Western Australia to obtain the Entwine accreditation.
