Margaret River is home to some of the best wineries you will ever find in Western Australia. In fact, there are so many wineries in Margaret River that you will never run out of options to choose from!
With so many options to choose from, there is no doubt that you will be able to find the perfect winery for you. Let’s take a look now at 8 of the best wineries in Margaret River for you to enjoy!
1). Vasse Felix
Vasse Felix is recognised as one of Margaret’s River founding and oldest wine estates. It was established in 1967 when Dr. Tom Cullity first planted vines in the area, which eventually produced the region’s first cabernet sauvignon in 1972.
At Vasse Felix, you can find one of the best wine cellars in Australia, an historic gallery and a restaurant that boasts a mix of rustic and modern charms. The cabernet sauvignon and the premium chardonnay, along with shiraz and semillon sauvignon blanc blends, are absolutely to die for.
2). Voyager Estate
Have you ever wanted to taste wine straight from the barrel? At Voyager Estate, you can do exactly that. Visit the Voyager Estate to see Australia’s largest underground barrel cellar, where you can go for a private wine tasting session.
Aside from the wine, you can find breathtaking Cape Dutch architecture and several polished gardens. In the estate’s restaurant, a popular go-to is the six-course, wine-paired lunch that encapsulates the Voyager Estate experience.
3). Howard Park
Howard Park houses a very modern wine tasting area that is peppered with looming marri and karri trees. Its angled ceiling rises to around 10 metres and is built alongside feng shui aesthetics, such as balancing timber, using concrete and stainless steel, which allows a heap of natural light to stream in through the north-facing windows.
Howard Park rests on the highest point of the Leston Vineyard and overlooks the Wilyabrup Valley. Howard Park is also best known for its riesling.
4). Aravina Estate
Aravina Estate is covered in beautiful gardens of pink and blue hydrangeas, manicured lawns, winding creeks, kitchen garden, and a scenic lake perfect for a peaceful getaway.
Aside from the wide range of wines in the cellar door, Aravina Estate is very family-friendly, where kids can play in the playground and freely run around in the open space. There is even a gallery for vintage sports cars which car enthusiasts can enjoy!
5). Leeuwin Estate
Leeuwin Estate is the last of the six founding wineries of Margaret River. Aside from the estate’s wines, you can have lunch at a restaurant that overlooks a meadow shrouded in karri trees, view the estate’s highly renowned art collection at the on-site gallery, and purchase their unique Art Series wine labels that have paintings from famous Australian artists such as Sidney Nolan and John Olsen.
Nothing serves wine, good food, fine music, and art like Leeuwin Estate does.
6). Cullen Wines
Cullen Wines is another pioneering winery in Margaret River. Cullen is unique because it is a biodynamic, carbon-neutral, and naturally powered estate. They also have a granite and timber cellar and wine tasting area and a restaurant where you can quietly enjoy a tasting with friends and family.
Another activity to do at Cullen Wines is to have lunch under the shade of peppermint trees as you overlook the vineyards. It will definitely be a lunch like no other!
7). Arimia Estate
At Arimia Estate, you can find a boutique and a sustainable winery nestled in bushland. You can visit their restaurant which offers local fare that is grown on-site or the guesthouse that has absolutely breathtaking views.
Arimia Estate has recently announced that they have moved to organic certification, which means that their wines will continue to become healthier and more flavoursome. Doesn’t that sound irresistible?
8). Flametree Wines
Flametree Wines is uniquely situated along the shores of Geographe Bay. Its Hampton beach house Cellar Door offers you the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
