Wine Tours in Margaret River

Margaret River is in South Western Australia located in a beautiful valley 172 miles south of Perth. To the west of the town sits the coast which is famous for surfing events. But today is all about wine, as many of us believe it is the best wine region in the country.

Many Different Wine Tours Available

Depending on the amount of time available, there are many different wine tours that you will want to take. Margaret River is warm in summer with a Mediterranean-style climate and rain falls over winter usually in the months between May and August, and because it doesn’t get too cold visit Margaret River at any time of the year.

The Wine region stretches for 55 square km, with more than 138 wineries, some very small in operation crushing about 3 tonnes of grapes a year. The area as a whole has over 20% of the Australian premium wine market. Humidity levels are perfect during the growing season, and the right combinations of climate and soil lead to high-quality fruit with amazing flavors. Many say that Margaret River is similar to the Bordeaux region (France) in climatic conditions.
