Margaret River


Geographically isolated and spectacular, Margaret River specialises in memorable regional cuisine and spectacular scenery, where rolling vineyards sit against a backdrop of ocean and forest.

Highly regarded as a producer of powerful yet elegant Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River is also famous for its white wines, especially its Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends. Margaret River’s ideal climate, good soil and maritime environment produce consistently superior vintages that confirm its reputation as one of the premium wine producing regions of the world.

Located in the far south-west corner of Western Australia, the region is a popular wine destination in a rugged natural setting. As well as its 155 wineries, Margaret River has a vibrant food scene with fine restaurants, boutique breweries, art galleries and fresh produce.

Visit Margaret River and discover an exciting combination of great food and wine, stunning beaches and world-class surf breaks, tall forests, undulating farmland and ancient caves.

HISTORY

The region was ‘discovered’ in the mid 1960s by scientists Professor Harold Olmo and Dr John Gladstones who identified it as a potentially great grape growing region. The region’s first commercial vines were planted in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity. Viticulture is now firmly established in this relatively young wine region, which celebrated 50 years in 2017.
