The Leeuwin Estate Platinum Experience, WA
View Gorgeous art, Blend Your Own Wine, and Feast!
Leeuwin Estate in Western Australia’s southern wine region, Margaret River, is truly one of Australia’s gems. It has received the highest winery scores by both James Halliday and Hugh Johnson, and its restaurant has been ranked number 4 in the world in the winery category. And now, the Platinum Experience gives wine, food, and art lovers the ultimate means to experience this special pocket of Australia’s remote South West.
This voucher entitles one person (a minimum of two are required for the experience to operate) to five-and-a-half hours of cultural indulgence at Leeuwin Estate, about three hours’ drive from Perth. Guests will start in the Estate’s art gallery at 10:30am, where they’ll enjoy a glass of bubbly and a chef’s selection of hors d’oeuvres. There, they’ll be guided through a unique collection of paintings by a who’s who of Australian artists, commissioned by Leeuwin for the labels of the acclaimed Art Series of premium wines.
From there, they’ll move to the wine laboratory, to try their hand at blending their very own Margaret River red wine, using a range of varietals. During the class, they’ll learn the ins and outs of the intersection between art and science that constitutes wine blending. And, they’ll leave with a very special souvenir: a commemorative bottle of their best creation!
And then, the best part: guests will move into the critically-acclaimed Leeuwin Estate restaurant, for a 5-course mini-degustation, matched with specially selected museum and contemporary releases of the highly-celebrated Art Series Cab Sav and Chardonnay. The restaurant has become famous for its ‘paddock-to-plate’ philosophy, whereby it works closely with artisan suppliers to produce stunning seasonal dishes, putting the region’s phenomenal seafood, meats and vegetables on show.
This experience will make for an unforgettable day, and is also a great opportunity to explore the region’s incredible beaches coastlines. And, for those wanting to add a lavish twist, helicopter charters out of Perth are available, for an extra fee.
The experience runs daily, subject to availability, and all participants need to be of legal drinking age. Those with special dietary requirements should make staff aware at the time of booking, and reservations should be re-confirmed 48 hours prior to the event. Changes to the booking can be made with at least seven days’ notice for free, but will incur a fee (50% of the total cost) if after that.
