Margaret River

Read about Margaret River
Perhaps Australia's greatest regional wine success, after barely 50 years Margaret River, while contributing only around three per cent of the country’s wine grapes, commands over 20% of the premium wine market and is represented on 25% of all wine lists in Australian restaurants.

Today there are over 5,000 hectares under vine and approximately 215 grape growers and wine producers in the region.

“… I believe Margaret River will with time become one of the world’s great wine regions. That it has come so far in only 50 years is a tribute not only to natural advantage, but also very largely to the skill and dedication of the pioneering vignerons and winemakers. And with few of the wines yet to fully mature, surely the best is still to come.’’
