Cape Mentelle Vineyards was established by David and Mark Hohnen and now part of the Moet Hennessy Wine Estates. Cape Mentelle was one of the first vineyards established in the Margaret River region. First planted in 1970, there are today over 90 hectares under vine and the winery, constructed in 1977, crushes about 1,000 tonnes of fruit from estate vineyards and contract grown fruit sourced from within the region. Primary plantings are of cabernet sauvignon, semillon and sauvignon blanc with smaller amounts of shiraz, zinfandel, merlot and chardonnay.

Cape Mentelle helped establish Margaret River as a serious player in Australian premium wines, by winning the Jimmy Watson medal. Today Cape Mentelle make a large variety of wines. Along with the cabernet, Cape Mentelle is also known for its Shiraz, and their Semillon Sauvignon blends are considered by many to the best in the district.

Cape Mentelle also make a Zindandel. This wine is produced in limited quantities from the estate's Wallcliffe vineyard planted in 1973. It shows great character - full-bodied and robust - with spicy, zesty fruit flavours enhanced by American oak. This wine, along with many of Cape Mentelles greatest are available here.
