The Margaret River is famous for stunning vistas of undulating vineyards, and the world-renowned wine they yield. Responsible for producing 20% of Australia’s premium vintages, this gorgeous area is one of the nation’s most prominent wine-growing regions.
With 150 wine cellars dotted throughout the Margaret River, there’s plenty for travellers to sample. Margaret River’s founding wine estate, Vasse Felix, is an essential stop, while the ultra-modern and beautiful Voyager Estate is perfect if you’re after a delicious meal matched to a perfect wine.
Some other high-profile vineyards that should feature on your itinerary include Aravina, with its sprawling garden and a vintage automobile collection, Amelia Park, Gourmet Traveller’s favourite cellar doors in Australia, the naturally-powered and carbon-neutral Cullen Wines, and the famous Leeuwin Estate, one of the six founding estates in the Margaret River.
Wine tours are a popular way to sample your way around the region; guided tours can be fun, cost-effective options. Alternatively, you can meander from cellar door to cellar door on your own gourmet food-and-drink crawl.
