Since the first significant planting of vines in 1967, the Margaret River wine region has grown to become regarded as potentially one of the great wine-producing regions of the world.
Armed with little more than passion in the early days, Margaret River winemakers have worked together to place the region’s name on the world stage.
Despite, or perhaps because of its youth when compared to centuries-old wine regions around the world, Margaret River has a vibrant and innovative wine industry that promotes progressive attitudes and trends in viticulture and winemaking.
Margaret River wine is blessed by the region’s natural environment which makes it a favourite for visitors around the world.
Although the region contributes only 3 per cent of the country’s wine grapes it commands over 20 per cent of today’s premium wine market.
Today there are over 5,000 hectares under vine and 215 grape growers and wine producers in the region.
