Uncork the premium flavours of Western Australian wineries.

There are nine sensational wine regions in the State to sample, each with its own distinctive notes and signatures. Among them are the international premium wine producers of Margaret River and the Great Southern, but venture a little off the well-known wine trails and you’ll find there are so many more bottled treasures to taste.

Six of the nine wine regions can be found in Australia’s South West, where the warm Mediterranean climate and rich fertile soils create the perfect environment for growing grape vines.

World-famous premium wines

By far the most well-known and established wine region in the South West is Margaret River, three hours’ drive south of Perth. The signature wines produced by Margaret River wineries include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Cabernet Sauvignon.

From here, head south into the depths of the tall-tree forests, and you’ll enter the cooler-climate wine region of the Great Southern, noted for its exceptional Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Boutique wineries with old-world charm

To taste the fruits of WA’s oldest wine region, you only need to take a 20-minute drive from Perth.

The Swan Valley is where the locals go to indulge all the senses. Today, the region’s original family-run wineries and fresh produce growers rub shoulders with big international wine producers, award-winning restaurants and cafes, boutique breweries and distilleries.

Take a wine tour of the cellar doors, and enjoy the rolling vineyards, art galleries, winding bush trails, national parks, colonial heritage, lakes and rivers along the way.

Just next door, you’ll find the wineries of the Perth Hills. Here, in the Darling Range, locals have been winemaking for more than a century, refining their Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz.

Exciting new notes and signatures

Surrounding the Margaret River wine region, you’ll find a cluster of emerging premium and boutique wine producers.

Sample the Chardonnay and Semillon varieties of the Geographe Wine Region. Or discover the promising Chardonnays, Merlots, Pinot Noirs, Rieslings and Cabernet Sauvignons of the Pemberton, Manjimup and Blackwood Valley wineries.

Closer to Perth, the Peel Wine Region was established in 1974, and is noted for its Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
