Bettenay wines are available through mail order, email, fax and the cellar door.
If you are visiting the Margaret River Region be sure to visit their stunning new architecturally designed tasting room. Greg is only too happy to give you a memorable cellar door experience.
This property was purchased in 1989 and grapes were planted in the same year. The varieties planted are the noble French varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Semillon and Chardonnay. In subsequent years Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz were also planted.
Owner / manager Greg Bettenay has an honours degree in horticulture specialising in the field of viticulture where he has worked as a consultant and established various vineyards in the Margaret River wine area. He is currently the senior lecturer in viticulture at Margaret River TAFE.
Bettenay’s vineyard has the perfect terroir - gravelly loam soils, a long dry summer ripening grapes to perfection with the aid of a cooling Indian sea breeze, which has been described as the best dirt in the region.
Bettenay Wines have been made since 1992. However, the first commercial wine was a 1997 Merlot released in 1999 along with a Semillon, Cabernet Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
