Margaret River Wine Region
The region’s Mediterranean climate and close proximity to the ocean creates near-perfect grape growing conditions and Australia’s South West is continually recognised as one of the premium wine producing regions of the world. There are six distinct wine regions within the South West and all offer the opportunity to hop from cellar door to cellar door, sampling award winning wines.
With good wine growing conditions comes good food.
Australia’s South West is almost as well known for its gourmet food as it is for its wine, and the pair go hand in hand. Many wineries have restaurants on site and you’ll often find the region’s best chefs working behind the pass, creating unforgettable cuisine. Dotted between cellar doors, you’ll find plenty of other tasty delights such as cheeses, olives, olive oils, marron, chocolate, fudge and so much more, fresh from the producers at boutique shops, cellar doors, farmers markets and farm gate stalls. Most towns within the south west hold farmers’ markets on the weekend where you’ll find the region’s delicacies all in one place.
Ranked among the world’s most famous wine regions, the Margaret River Wine Region produces 20% of Australia’s premium wines. The superior growing conditions in Australia's South West have a big part to play in this. The even temperatures throughout the ripening season and the many rain-free days during the growing months ensure consistently high quality fruit of intense flavour.
