Cape Mentelle is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a tasting and collaborative exhibition featuring lifestyle photographer Aquabumps.
The Cape Mentelle x Aquabumps Explore Your Horizon interactive exhibition will pop-up at the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club in Sydney, from November 28 – 29.
Established by winemaking legend David Hohnen in 1970, Cape Mentelle is one of the founding Margaret River wineries. Over the years, the award-winning winery has cultivated a sustainable winemaking philosophy driven by a thirst for experimentation and a desire to showcase the potential of the pristine Margaret River region.
Cape Mentelle’s collaboration with leading lifestyle photographer Aquabumps (Eugene Tan) is designed to bring to life the winery’s rich history, showcasing the people and stories from the last 50 years.
Cape Mentelle Winemaker Ben Cane said: “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 – an unrelenting pursuit of greatness that drives us to push boundaries and achieve amazing things – whether its capturing that perfect light at sunrise or picking grapes at the perfect moment of ripeness.”
Tan added: “Cape Mentelle holds a special place in my heart – not only for producing exceptional wines but for their beach-inspired lifestyle and sustainable winemaking practices.
“I remember many surfing trips to Margaret River as a kid; it was the beginning of my connection to the ocean as well to our diverse land. I was stoked to be able to head back to Margaret River recently to capture one of the most stunning coastlines and wine regions in Australia as part of Cape Mentelle’s 50th celebration.”
