History | One of the district’s founding
wineries, Leeuwin Estate was established
in 1974 by Denis and Tricia Horgan, with
winemaker Robert Mondavi from California’s
Napa Valley playing the role of mentor in
the early years. Leeuwin’s first commercial
vintage was celebrated in 1979. Today, it’s
under the direction of two generations of
the founding family
Functions | The beautiful surroundings
at Leeuwin Estate are a perfect setting for
private functions, events and weddings. The
Gold Plate-winning restaurant’s verandahs
offer views of the natural surrounds, and the
nearby art gallery can be transformed into
a majestic venue suitable for any event.
You can even create your own venue by
erecting a marquee in Leeuwin’s stunning
grounds and dining a stone’s throw from
grape vines and towering karri trees.
Star attraction | When your visitors
include names like Tom Jones, Diana Ross,
Chris Isaak and Sting, you know you’re on to
something special. They’re just some of the
famous entertainers who have appeared at
the Leeuwin Concert, an event that’s drawn
thousands each year since 1985.
Fly in | Leeuwin Estate co-ordinates
charter flights to the estate so guests can
fly down for lunch or a special occasion.
Where | Set in one of the world’s most beautiful
wine regions, Leeuwin Estate’s function spaces
include a restaurant, art gallery and boardroom.

110 people, or 250 when using the verandah.
The art gallery holds 200 and the serviced
boardroom, 15. Larger events can be held
in a marquee on the meadow.

and feature local produce, including asparagus,
marron, venison, lamb, berries and cheese.
