The Margaret River Wine Region is situated in the south-west corner of Western Australia, around 270 kilometres (168 miles) from the state’s capital, Perth.

Margaret River is one of the Earth’s most pristine, geographically secluded, coastal wine regions. This
breathtaking destination of ancient landforms, lush forests and distinct Ironstone gravel soils enjoys a
‘textbook perfect’ climate for fine wines, with its consistent Mediterranean climate and intense maritime
influence – here, the Indian and Southern Oceans meet.

Scarce and sought-after worldwide, Margaret River wines represent only 2% of the Australian annual crush.
The elegant and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay expressions are most noteworthy and can
be grown with a ‘light touch’ approach, as the grapes typically ripen with superb balance, refinement and
structure. Artisan and family-owned producers dominate, and their preference for handcrafted winemaking
and respectful creativity shines through.
