We are so happy to announce that visitors can now book our new experiences at Passel Estate, with a portion of the proceeds of each booking going directly towards the nature and wildlife conservation program at the Estate.
The new bookable experiences have been developed by owners Wendy and Barry Stimpson to offer a deeper level of immersion when you visit us here at Passel Estate.
“We want to to provide an opportunity for guests to have an even greater connection with the estate when they visit, and to discover something new that we believe cannot be not found anywhere else in Western Australia, while also contributing to the nature conservation efforts of Passel Estate.”
Each of Passel Estate’s award-winning wines is paired with an artisanal and handcrafted chocolate encased bonbon. Designed and handmade by Margaret River’s premier chocolatier, each flavour-filled delight complements and amplifies the sensory experience of its accompanying wine in this unique wine pairing experience.
“The elegant and locally produced food matches are designed to complement and highlight the flavour, aroma and texture of each wine, pushing the boundaries beyond what is expected or imagined. The hand- crafted bonbons use chocolate as a vehicle for these elements, however they are unlike any chocolate that guests will have tried before.”
Settle down as the sun sets over the vines to enjoy award-winning single-vineyard wines, each paired with delicious hand-crafted morsels by an internationally renowned Master Chocolatier. As dusk finally falls, retire home with a bottle of Passel Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and some local artisanal cheese. Learn about Passel Estate’s wildlife conservation and discover the provenance of the wines. Available Friday and Saturday evenings.
“We wanted visitors to be able to witness the tranquil beauty of the vineyard and tasting room as the sun sets over the vines, alongside an intimate discovery of our wines and our story, while relaxing at the end of the day. I think it is a very romantic experience and one you cannot find anywhere else in Margaret River.”
Enjoy a private tour of Passel Estate’s bushland conservation sanctuary and enjoy a tasting in situ alongside the very vines that went into your glass. Learn about the local flora and fauna that co-exist in the vineyard ecosystem, including the family (a passel) of critically endangered western ringtail possums that have been reintroduced to the estate. Guests will also enjoy a full guided wine tasting paired alongside an artisan cheese platter.
“The conservation sanctuary was established before Passel Estate was producing wines, and as a home to the critically endangered Western Ringtail Possum, it inspired the name for our label. Providing an opportunity for people to really connect with nature and the native wildlife conservation priorities.”
Taste the Passel Estate range alongside benchmark wines from renowned wine regions across Australia, in a unique guided tasting of six wines that showcases Margaret River’s stylistic differences. The aim of this tasting is to provide an informative, engaging and memorable wine experience for all Tasting Room visitors, at any level.
“This is our flagship guided tasting that has been redeveloped and relaunched, with the opportunity now to add our small batch, Lot 71 Reserve wines to the experience.”
We look forward to seeing you at the Tasting Room and don’t forget to book in advance if you’d like to experience the magic of these experiences for yourself!
