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.
