Margaret River is a small town south of Perth in Western Australia. Beaches and surf breaks line the nearby coast, whose waters host migratory whales from June to November. Stretching between 2 lighthouses north and south of the town, the long-distance Cape to Cape Track fringes the limestone caves and sea cliffs of Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
Three hours south of Perth and only 110km from cape to cape, the Margaret River region is one of Australia’s most compact, yet dramatically diverse wine regions. The climate, terroir and general conditions were likened to the renowned region of Bordeaux in France. The maritime climate of Margaret River is ideal for premium grape growing as it avoids the extremes of both winter and summer.
