Margaret River

It has been just 45 years since the first vines were planted, but near perfect growing conditions have enabled Margaret River to quickly become recognised as one of the world’s great fine wine regions. Celebrated as one of the world’s most conducive areas for producing Chardonnay, this region in South West Australia produces wines of great intensity, length and character.

Margaret River is possibly even more highly regarded for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet blends which are best known for their dense fruit flavours, complexity and cellaring potential. An appreciation for the pristine environment and a more healthy way of living among Australians has also led to an increase in the production of preservative free wine along with organic and biodynamic farming practices and wine making. The wineries are the true ambassadors for the region, and the wine industry pioneers have been responsible for putting the region on the map. With over 150 wine producers in the region you are spoilt for choice, with many of the cellar doors boasting restaurants, market gardens, inspiring architecture, art galleries and boutique giftware.
