From Swan Valley, the industry quickly branched out to the Great Southern region of Western Australia, along the the route of its sub-regions—Porongurups, Mount Barker, Albany, Denmark, and Franklin and Margaret River. The numerous productive Margaret River wineries specialize in red and white wines, the most popular being the red cabernet sauvignon and the bubbly sauvignon blanc.
For people who want to truly savour the best wineries in Margaret River and nearby popular places, such as the popular The Berry Farm in Rosa Glen, a wine tour of the region should be a sensible idea. There are several agencies that offer a guided tour, but with over a hundred wineries in the area, you’ll have to cast your own net around the places you absolutely need to see. Whether you take the guided tour option, or forge your own itinerary, take note of these few reminders.
