Vasse Felix realising great ambition

Paul Holmes a Court has spent the past decade quietly restructuring Margaret River’s oldest winery, re-engineering the business and its operations as he looks towards a goal that very few others would dare to consider.

Mr Holmes a Court took full ownership of his family’s agribusiness, Heytesbury, in 2008, including the 50-year-old Vasse Felix winery, which had been a subsidiary since 1987.

He had run the business on behalf of the family since 2005, but believed the time was right to take control of his own destiny.
