Cape Mentelle

Established in 1970, Cape Mentelle counts itself among the ‘founding five’ wineries of the now renowned Margaret River region. The tasting room, with its iconic barrels required a modern update from the bright and uniform lighting, which created an uncomfortable amount of glare during tastings and corporate events. The new lighting design by Klaasen Lighting Design was aimed at bringing back the magic and creating an “instagrammable” background when tasting at Cape Mentelle. Cape Mentelle represents a wonderful example of how a simple adaptive lighting design and an intelligent lighting system can transform a space into a totally different experience with simple controls.

“The defined lighting optics now create a sparkle on the wine and glasses allowing visitors not only to taste but also appreciate the clarity and colour of the wine.”
