Currently home to around 155 wineries crafting wines of great intensity, length and character, Margaret River viticulture was established by the 1970s by two scientists who identified it as a potentially great grape growing region. It may be young when it comes to winemaking, but the terroir between the rolling hills of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge and the Indian Ocean is responsible for powerful yet elegant Cabernet Sauvignon, exceptional Chardonnays; and Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, which when blended enjoy the popular moniker, the Margaret River Classic Dry White. Preservative free wine and organic and biodynamic farming practices and winemaking are also making a statement here, emulating the region’s pristine beauty and coastline.

    There's that famous old French saying in Burgundy, about the good warm vintages, that you would have to be dead not to make good wine. And in the easy years, that's what happens - everyone makes good wine and everyone's picking around the same time. But it's the difficult years – and in the Valley here, we still get three or four difficult years in every ten – they're the years where you make the statement on your skills and your expertise.
