Margaret River is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful wine regions in Australia. Unfortunately, its location makes it not a convenient weekender for east-coast dwellers and a few more days are required to make the most of it.
A trip to the Margaret River can be incorporated with a visit to Perth, down the coast to Cape Leeuwin- the southernmost tip of Australia or other areas of Western Australia, such as Bunbury.
Unfortunately my time in the Margaret River was too short to give you a list of 10 top wineries, so here are my most memorable top 8 wineries in the Margaret River:
- Voyager Estate
I fell in love with this estate through its wine dogs and then when I went there, with it’s beautiful white washed structures and gardens. The white wines are heavy, but a little expensive.
- Redgate Wines
I liked every wine I tried at Redgate, which put it near the top of the list for me.
- Cape Mentelle
Cape Mentelle was also a winery where I liked every wine I tried.
- Vasse Felix
The large grounds and spacious cellar door make Vasse Felix an attractive option. They also serve excellent food in the restaurant upstairs.
5. Stella Bella
Stella Bella is commercially set up well with a fine Italian restaurant, which seems to be a favourite of the locals.
- Howling Wolves
I loved the clever marketing of Howling Wolves and the fact that the wines were affordable.
Xanadu had a great indoor display of vines with information on wine growing
8. Leeuwin Estate Winery
The modern and strangely shaped building at Leeuwin was interesting.
