Margaret River Wineries
In the south of Western Australia situated in the stunning Margaret River you’ll find a world-class wine region.
The region has only been around for less than a century, but optimum growing conditions have enabled the Margaret River wine region to flourish and become one of the world's premier fine wine regions. It has been referred to as having a climate similar to that of Bordeaux in France and we know how good the wine is there!
The establishment began when Dr Tom Cullity, a Perth Cardiologist had a dream to make wine. After careful research he planted the first Margaret River vines on the eight acres of land that he had bought for a mere $75 an acre and named his property "Vasse Felix", a name the expanded vineyard still bears today.
Made up predominantly of boutique wineries, this region produces just 3% of total Australian grape production but accounts for over 20% of the Australian premium wine market. Highly regarded for its cabernet sauvignon and celebrated as one of the world’s most favourable areas for producing chardonnay – be sure to taste these specialties! Home to world-class wineries, breweries, some of the finest restaurants and divine cheese and chocolate factories, your senses will be in for a treat.
