Cygnet Bay Pearls - Harvest Lunch



If you're driving north on holidays between August 30 and September 20, Cygnet Bay Pearls are celebrating their annual Pearl Harvest with a pearl meat Degustation Menu.

Pearl meat forms the centrepiece of the 8 course Degustation menu and is a delicacy only offered by a few restaurants. Pearl meat is ideally served fresh from the shell and guests have an extraordinary opportunity to experience this delicacy at its freshest, harvested just 40m from Cygnet Bay's kitchen at the only restaurant in Australia with access to pearl meat straight from the sea.

We are proud to have two of our wines - our Riesling and Pinot Grigio which will be served to enjoy with the Degustation menu.

Please phone 08 9192 4283 for enquiries and reservations.

We're Celebrating!



We're thrilled to advise that the

2011 West Cape Howe 'Book Ends' Cabernet Sauvignon
has featured in James Halliday's Top Cellaring Selections booklet
in his 'Wine Companion' magazine June/July 2014
with a fantastic rating of 96 POINTS

James wrote, ' From the oldest vines on the estate-owned Langton Vineyard, matured in French oak for 18 months. Good hue and depth; this is unreservedly full-bodied, but retains juicy cassis/blackcurrant fruit held in a tight embrace of ripe tannins and quality oak. Great value. Drink to 2036.'

It's Gavin Berry's 25th Vintage!



"After moving to the Great Southern in the late '80's for what was expected to be perhaps a two year stint, I am now in the midst of my 25th vintage!  All because I haven't found anywhere else that delivers what the Great Southern can; an ideal region for viticulture and winemaking, producing a wide range of varieties and wine styles (especially Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc).  It is a region that offers a great lifestyle as well!" Gavin Berry

Please join with everyone at West Cape Howe in congratulating Gavin on his wonderful achievement!
