History

In 1972, following an extensive search for the area most suitable to produce the best varietal wines in Australia, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard. With Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor during Leeuwin’s establishment, the winery has evolved under the direction of the Horgan family and now exports its wines to over 30 countries.

Leeuwin Estate was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay in an international blind tasting. The accolades have continued. The Estate has been ranked as a five star winery by James Halliday and received Hugh Johnson’s highest ranking. On three occasions Leeuwin has been included in the prestigious category of International Winery of the Year by US Wine & Spirits magazine and included in the prestigious French publication, 100 Vins De Legende, as one of the world's great wine legends. Leeuwin wines have featured on the cover of WINE SPECTATOR and been included in the Editor’s annual selection of top 100 wines a number of times.  Scoring 98/100 points Editor at Large, Harvey Steiman, wrote of the 2001 Art Series Chardonnay, “this gets my vote for the greatest white wine Australia has ever produced.”
