Margaret River is well known around the world for its premium wineries. While the area only produces about 3 per cent of Australia’s total wine, it produces more than a fifth of its premium wines and with over 120 world class wineries to visit, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Head to cellar doors for some wine-tasting and vineyard tours, meet winemakers and learn about a vast range of wines from chardonnays to cabernets. Vasse Felix is worth checking out as it was the first winery in the region and offers the ultimate dining experience in its award-winning restaurant.
Why not pair all this fantastic wine with some delicious local delicacies? As the area is home to top-notch local produce, every year in late November the Margaret River Gourmet Escape takes place. This is an opportunity to taste even more amazing wines, eat mouth-watering local dishes and mingle with world-famous chefs, all in the heart of the renowned Leeuwin Estate vineyard.
