Australia | Margaret River
The Margaret River wine region is located in the far south-west corner of Western Australia and is one of the most geographically isolated wine regions in the world. Since the first commercial vintages in the 1970's it has quickly established itself as a source of Australia's finest wines.
The region has gained a reputation for producing powerful, yet elegant, wines producing standout Cabernet red wine blends, alongside Chardonnay and Semillon/ Sauvignon Blanc white wine blends. Wine produces the like of Leeuwin Estate, Vasse Felix, Cullen, Howard Park and many, many more are beacons for the production of fine Australian wine.
These well-established family names have now been joined by the next generation of producers who continue to push boundaries and change perceptions of the region. From organic and biodynamic farming methods, to whole bunch fermentation in amphora and experimenting with alternative varieties, the new breed of Margaret River producers are adding diversity to the region ensuring it remains at the forefront of "Aussie" viticulture for years to come.
