Capel Vale Wine & Gourmet Dinner
Friday, 25 October Protected content
Capel Vale began as a hobby for Sydney radiologist Dr Peter Pratten and his wife, Elizabeth when they purchased land on the Capel River between Bunbury and Busselton in Protected content . Dr Pratten is a pioneer within Western Australia and amongst the first to be established with vines planted in Protected content . The initial winery was built on the Stirling Estate in Capel in Protected content shortly thereafter the first fintage in Protected content .
Dr Peter Pratten was the first to identify viticultural potential in the cool climate regions of W.A. - Margaret River, Pemberton, Mount Barker and Geographe. As a result, Capel Vale now produces wines of definite regional flavour and varietal expression with a focus on balance, complexity and elegant fruit flavours.
In Protected content , Dr Peter Pratten, as winemaker produced a Capel Vale Riesling which was named Australian National Dry White Champion. An historic moment in the history of not only Capel Vale but also of Riesling in Australia. Capel Vale Winery has recently been awarded the very prestigious Top Red 5 Star Winery in James Halliday's Protected content Champion. James Halliday rated 14 Capel Vale wines over 90 points, their best result to date!
It is our pleasure to have Dr Pratten with us again this October to share with us some of his award winning wines, including the well-known Single Vineyard Whispering Hill Riesling.
