Margaret River Wine Country Guide

The most isolated wine region in the world, Margaret River makes some of Australia’s finest wines.

Explore Margaret River

The Wadandi people have been custodians of Margaret River for over 50,000 years, one of the oldest civilizations in the world, yet grapes have only been planted here since 1967.

In just over 50 years, Margaret River has skyrocketed into a world-class producer of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

The styles of the wines here are different from the rest of Australia - you find the richness of fruit and ripe flavors, but you have restrained elegance thanks to the cooling influence of the ocean surrounding them.

Discover exceptional and age-worthy red and white wines in Margaret River.
