The Margaret River region is known around the world for its top-quality wines and food. While the region produces less than 3 per cent of Australia's wine, it accounts for more than a fifth of its premium wine. There are more than 120 world-class wineries to explore, including Flinders Bay Wines, Flying Fish Cove, and Evans & Tate, and opportunities to not only try fine wines, but get beyond the cellar doors. Among the many vineyard tours there are also tours that get you behind the scenes to meet winemakers, have a barrel room testing, and potentially even blend your own bottle of wine, coupled with a long lunch.
