Happs Winery and Pottery, Dunsborough

Happs Winery, Dunsborough

Hiding in dense bush, just south of Dunsborough, is the Happs Winery. Their cellar door, built from hand-made mud bricks fits in nicely with its rustic surrounds. As well as the cellar door, Happs is home to a pottery and one of the most colourful gardens we have seen!

Cellar Door

We do enjoy a tasting at the Happs cellar door. The staff are friendly, and certainly know their stuff when it comes to wine. It was lovely that they took the time to explain a little about wine and winemaking to us, who love a drop, but aren’t that knowledgeable about the wine making process. Whatever your preferred tipple – sparkling, sweet, dry or preservative free – you’re bound to find something to take home.

There’s also lots of wine accessories available for sale.

Pottery

Enjoy wandering around the pottery gallery which has been around since the 1970s. Here there’s many beautiful clay creations, as well as locally made crafts and jewellery. You may be lucky and catch a “potter or artist in residence” and see the artists at work, producing pots and paintings.

Upstairs you’ll find another potter treasure trove. We also found their resident cat sunning itself on the balcony. Be wary if you have young grandchildren, as it is known to be a little grumpy!

You’ll also find a tea and coffee station where you can make your own cuppa for $3. Biscuits are also available.

Gardens

The courtyard off the pottery is absolutely stunning and so full of bright, vibrant flowers.

While Happs doesn’t offer a restaurant or café, you can “build your own picnic” here to enjoy with a glass of wine. Choose from a taste bud tempting range of local cheeses, charcuterie, olives, cold meats, dips, relishes, crackers, bread and more. Pop that in a basket and eat picnic-style on the lawns of the amphitheatre, outside at a shaded table, or inside if it’s a rainy day.

If you have grandies in tow, there is a jetty-style play structure they’re sure to enjoy climbing on, as well as a kiddies table with some blocks and books inside.
