Special exhibition marks Cape Mentelle milestone

Margaret River winery Cape Mentelle is one of the icons of the Australian industry and is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2020. 

To mark the milestone, Cape Mentelle has partnered with leading Australian lifestyle photographer Aquabumps, who has been busy over the past few months curating a special photography series that brings the magnificent region to life, as well as the winery’s stories and people over the past 50 years, including legendary founder David Hohnen.

The Cape Mentelle x Aquabumps Explore Your Horizon exhibition and wine tasting experience will take place in Sydney (April 3-5). 

I've always been an admirer of Cape Mentelle but must admit to never having heard of Aquabumps (which is sounds an absurd name to an old fogey like me). His real name is apparently Eugene Tan. 

Established by Hohnen in 1970, Cape Mentelle was one of the first three founding Margaret River wineries that set the region’s benchmark for quality. 

Over the years, the winery has cultivated a sustainable winemaking philosophy and built a worldwide reputation to quality sauvignon blanc. 

The photography exhibition is designed to bring to life the winery’s history, showcasing people and stories over the past 50 years. 

The pop-up will give visitors the opportunity to learn the Cape Mentelle story, taste the range of  Margaret River wines and enjoy the photographic exhibition. 

“Not only is Eugene born and bred in Western Australia, with fond childhood memories of the Margaret River region, he shares the same dedication to his craft as the Cape Mentelle winemaking team," says winemaker Ben Cane. 

Explore your Horizon, North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club, Campbell Parade, North Bondi. April 3-5. To book tickets and for more information: www.capementelle.com.au
