Margaret River - Paradise in All Seasons

Margarte River Wine Assoc.

The Margaret River Wine Region is one of the largest wine regions in Australia and stretches some 100km from north to south and about 27km wide in parts.

The region comprises the rolling hills of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, extending 90 kilometres north-south between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. To the west, the Indian Ocean provides a dramatic boundary of cliffs, world renowned surf and some of Australia’s most pristine beaches.  It also boasts native karri, marri and jarrah forests and an abundance of natural cave formations.

Magical Sights, Epicurean Delights and Award Winning Wines

The Margaret River Wine Region is an epicurean's dream with locally grown olives, venison, award-winning cheeses, chocolate, organic fruit and vegetables plus an abundance of fish and seafood caught just offshore. These beautiful products are showcased by the celebrated  chefs in award winning restaurants, either a casual vineyard lunch or a gourmet dinner, there is always something to tempt every palate.

It is a wine region of superior growing conditions with a Mediterranean style climate.  This means vineyards are not affected by extreme summer and winter temperatures.  Humidity levels are ideal during the growing period and the combination of climate, soil and viticulture practices leads to consistently high quality fruit of intense flavour.  Consequently annual vintage results continue to exceed expectations and reinforce its reputation of one of the premium wine producing regions of the world.

Wine and Vine Intensive Education Courses

Wine and Vine courses are for people with high standards who are motivated to close the "Wine Gap". Many enthusiasts of all levels wish they knew more about wine. Some are motivated to improve their knowledge, tasting skills or confidence rapidly. These courses aim to achieve this.

This combination will ensure that the learning will stay with the participants for the rest of their lives.

Small classes of typically 8-10 people allow us to tailor-make the content to the individual needs and wishes of each participant, regardless of their level of experience
