Magical Sights, Epicurean Delights and Award Winning Wines
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.
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.
It 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 also boasts native Karri, Marri and Jarrah forests as well as an abundance of natural cave formations.

The essence of the Margaret River experience
This seasonal tour in Margaret River wine and whale country is a unique tour to inspire all the senses.

Wine and Vine courses are for people with high standards motivated to close the "Wine Gap". Enthusiasts of all levels wish they knew more about wine and are motivated to improve their knowledge, tasting skills or confidence rapidly.
To create the best learning opportunities the Wine and Vine courses combine interactive presentations, vineyard and winery experiences, wine and food tastings, hands-on activities, fun-filled wine games and delicious wine-paired lunches and dinners prepared by chefs using local ingredients. 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. Bespoke courses are available upon request.
Home to a diverse and vibrant arts and culture scene, the Margaret River Region will inspire you with the array of emerging and professional artists.
Artists here practice a wide range of crafts and this is demonstrated not just in galleries and theatres but also through festivals of art and music, and in the quaint stores of local artisans.
One such festival is Margaret River Region Open Studios, an annual Open Art Studios Event to showcase the increasingly diverse and vibrant visual arts throughout the Margaret River Region.
To support this event we at Margaret River Unplugged Tours have created a tour than incorporates the very best of this artistic feast, combined with visits to wineries with fabulous wine and art, lunch at award winning restaurants with creative and beautiful food created by award winning chefs.
