In 1972, Denis and Tricia Horgan contacted famous American winemaker Robert Mondavi to help them with their plans to help turn their once cattle farm into a highly respected Margaret River wine producer. Mondavi clearly did his job very well with Leeuwin Estate, and particularly Block 20, recognized as one of Australia’s great vineyard sites.
Since that time the Horgans and Leeuwin Estate have made an astounding contribution to Australian wine, most particularly with their Art Series Chardonnay that is still, despite the dramatic shift in Australian styles, widely considered amongst the best this country produces. Recent vintages have also seen their Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon also jump ahead leaps and bounds with the wine typically now considered among Margaret River’s top dozen offerings from the quality varietal.
Today Leeuwin Estate is also very well known for the excellent concerts held on their grassy knoll directly below the cellar door which draw thousands of visitors every year.
Leeuwin Estate Philosophy
Originally a cattle farm, Denis and Tricia Horgan created Leeuwin Estate and immediately adopted a philosophy to identify the varietals that best suit the Margaret River climate so as to create the best wines possible.
Leeuwin Estate Brands
The Leeuwin Estate range has three tiers – The Art Series, The Prelude and The Siblings. Art Series marks the pinnacle of Leeuwin Estate wines, the Chardonnay the most well known of these although the Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon are also highly respected, followed by the Prelude and Siblings ranges.
