Margaret River winery Cape Mentelle celebrates its 50th anniversary this year with a unique photographic collaboration.
Established by winemaking legend David Hohnen in 1970, Cape Mentelle is renowned for crafting vibrant, elegant and expressive wines – particularly Cabernet Sauvignon.
To mark the milestone, the winery is joining with leading Australian lifestyle photographer Aquabumps to bring to life the winery’s rich history, showcasing the people and stories throughout the last 50 years.
The Cape Mentelle x Aquabumps Explore Your Horizon interactive exhibition will pop-up at the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club in Sydney, from April 3 – 5, 2020, giving visitors the opportunity to experience the winery’s story, taste its range of wines and enjoy a specially curated photography series captured by Aquabumps’ Eugene Tan.
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
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Aquabumps to celebrate our 50th anniversary 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.”
Eugene Tan added: “As a kid, I remember the many surfing trips to Margaret River as the beginning of my connection to the ocean as well as 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.”
Limited complimentary tickets to the exhibition are available to the public. To book, visit the Cape Mentelle website.
