Cape Mentelle takes part to the Journees Particulieres, a bi-annual event by the French luxury group LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton, created in 2011 at the initiative of Antoine Arnault. This year’s edition of Les Journees Particulieres will run from October 12th to 14th, welcoming the public on four continents, and stretching to Australia for the first time.
The Journees Particulieres are characterized by the discovery of heritage and savoir faire. For the occasion, Cape Mentelle – part of the LVMH group – has designed a 1.5 hour visit, including a tour of the vineyards, the winery and a tasting of Cape Mentelle’s wine range from barrels.
Guided by Cameron Murphy, Estate Director, and Frdrique Perrin, Technical Director, the visitors will discover the outstanding setting of the estate, with birds chirping providing an harmonious atmosphere to their visit. Cape Mentelle will exceptionally open the wooden doors of its historic vat cellar, where visitors will have the chance to create a blend of their own.
“Les Journees Particulieres is an opportunity for us to invite visitors to look behind the scenes, and share the history and the secrets of Cape Mentelle. We are proud to participate to the 4th edition of the event for the first time this year,” says Cameron Murphy.

ABOUT CAPE MENTELLE
Established in 1970 by wine industry pioneer David Hohnen and his brothers, Cape Mentelle is one of Margaret River’s original three founding wineries. It was bold exploration and love for challenge that led Cape Mentelle’s founders to plant the first vines in 1970, in a place where no one dared to try before. Today Margaret River is recognized as one of the finest wine producing regions in the world.
