Margaret River: region
Western Australia, Australia
Mediterranean climate with strong maritime influences
Number of wineries
Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay

Margaret River is known as one of the most remote and isolated wine regions in the world. Surrounded by ancient forests and rugged coastlines, this region is packed with five-star wineries. Once considered a hidden oasis, this region took off in the wine industry after the arrival of two research scientists in the 1950’s deemed it an ideal location for growing high-quality grapes. And as they say, the rest is history. In the space of less than fifty years these dedicated winemakers have cultivated an international reputation for producing first-class cabernet sauvignon and chardonnays.

Tucked away on the south-western Australian coast between Cape Leeuwine and Cape Naturaliste, Margaret Rivers attracts beachgoers and food lovers alike to this slice of secluded paradise. Hugged by the ocean on three sides, the ancient soils combined with Mediterranean climate are ideal for grape growers; and the cool sea breezes create a long, dry ripening season capable of taking their renowned Cabernet Sauvignon vines right to the end of the season. The true quality of the Cabernet Sauvignons being produced in this area is clear to see in the wine reviews. Of the over 160 wineries in the region producing their own distinct Cabernet, 70 of these wineries have been given a five-star rating by James Halliday.
