A curiosity that  brings many visitors to Happs is the adobe brick used to construct the walls of the winery, the pottery and our residence.  These bricks were made on site from the earth on hand. If the local Government of the day had prevailed in 1977 this form of construction could not have been attempted.  Thirty seven years later we can say that this material has stood the test of time.

Welcome to the flavour frontier

Happs is an unusual wine company. We grow thirty grape varieties and produce an abundance of wine styles. All wines are available to taste every day. Our restless innovative urge is seen in the vineyard, the winery and our cellar door. This comprehensive website tells our story.

The wine styles include.

The i (Indigenous) range

Emphasizing unadulterated native fruit flavour with little or no oak influence.

Fuchsia and the Sweets

Wines that are category building in the sense that most people come to wine via sweet wines that provide the gob smacking appeal of fermenting grape juice.

The PF (Preservative Free) range

These wines take advantage of ultra-clean fruit hand harvested and chilled prior to vinification in order to avoid the use of antibacterial chemicals under the headline ‘sulphites’. PF wines are natural wines in the best sense of the word, produced with a level of care and attention to detail that is beyond the attention span of most commercial wineries. Would you let your average bloke take over your kitchen? No, then what about the winery? It takes some special skills to produce wine without the aid of sulphur dioxide.

The  dry table wines

Mostly wines drawn from our Three Hills Estate (est. 1994) but also our Dunsborough Estate (Est 1978) at everyday drinking prices for those who must have wines with softness, flavour, richness and a thoroughly palatable aftertaste.

The Three Hills range

Wines that push out the frontier in terms of flavour and finish.  Margaret River is the region best represented on the nations restaurant wine lists. Three Hills wines compare with any that purport to represent the state of the art. Here, you pay for what you get, but in moderation, Happs style.

We urge you to visit our cellar door and taste the difference.

 

Cheers.
