One of Margaret River’s earliest wine estates. The pioneer of the region founded the winery, Dr. Thomas Brendan Cullity, and began with the idea of producing the perfect wine from the area.
Everyone is invited to go on a tour of the winery and take in the incredible food prepared by Chef Brendan Prattin Vasse Felix Restaurant. The chef Pratt, as well as his crew, come up with delicious dishes that are based on the wines on offer. For starters, you can enjoy the charcuterie and pair this with Classic Dry White. It is a well-loved mix made of Semillon along with Sauvignon Blanc that is sure to please. This Classic Dry White is a pure fruit-based wine that has been produced by Vasse Felix since 1987. This refreshing and crisp wine is perfect with fruits and cheeses.
Moving on to delicious, mouth-watering meals that include Stracciatella as well as the Kingfish. Both of these dishes go perfectly with Heytesbury Chardonnay or the Sauvignon Blanc Semillon.
Take advantage of a main dish with choices like Fazzoletti or Beef with the Davidson plum. Serve these main dishes with the Filius the Cabernet Merlot. Or choose the most famous Cabernet Sauvignon… Tom Cullity. To finish off your meal, try The Cane Cut Semillon. It is a delightfully sweet wine. A wonderful way to end an excellent dinner at the Vasse Felix Restaurant.
Swings & Roundabouts
The name Swings and Roundabouts is a particular phrase. It is a perfect way to invoke a feeling of equilibrium. The balance of various aspects of wine and grape production. While we’re not certain where this phrase originated in the first place, it does have global significance across the world. The notion that everything works out equally in the end. Imagine the pocket getting drained and coins falling out; however, you also find some notes in the dirt during your travels. The key is balance.
The process of generating amazing fruit and creating excellent wine isn’t to be described as a precise science. Every winemaker and the environment in the vineyard will ultimately determine the style of wine that is served in every glass. The name is intended to honor the artistry as well as to highlight the balance that is created by the natural world and the winemakers. Swings & Roundabouts believes they are able to produce the ideal Mediterranean-style wine that is perfect on its own as well as served with incredible food. Swings and Roundabouts are the iconic Margaret River…fresh and creative, lively and full of fun in the backyard!
Swings & Roundabouts offers an unparalleled experience that is unrivaled. The restaurant and cellar doors provide a variety of adventures full of lively music, open fires, and a large lawn that offers the most stunning views of Margaret River! Visit for a tasty meal, and begin your meal with a fresh salad. This salad includes avocado, radishes, almonds, and their lemon-based dressing. Enjoy it with their delicious Swings and Roundabouts Chenin Blanc. Enjoy a bite from their Boscaiola pizza that is filled with cheeses, porcini moz,zarella, ton mushrooms, salted scamorza truffle oil, and parsley. While you’re there, you sip their Swings & Roundabouts Chardonnay. Enjoy the Chocolate Delice. It is a combination of salted caramel and dark chocolate, as well as peanut praline. I recommend finishing this dish with Swings and Roundabouts and a Cabernet Merlot.
