7 Top Wine and Dine Spots in Margaret River

story by: Tom Ricketts

With over 200 wineries on offer, there is absolutely something for even the fussiest of wine connoisseurs in Margaret River. We like our wines too, and here’s a few of our favourite spots to try…

These guys were the very first vineyard in Margaret River and have continually set the benchmark ever since, not only in Margaret River, but nationwide. Vasse Felix produce Cab Sav, Shiraz and Chardonnay. Open for lunch daily, the restaurant is one of the most awarded in the state too.

As close to perfection as you can get! This beautiful vineyard takes as much pride in its manicured hedges, vines and lawns as it does in its wine. They have three brands, Voyager Estate, VOC Collection and best of all, Tom Price, their premier brand with just one Cab Sav and one Sav Blanc. Plan to spend a few hours here, especially if you opt for lunching on the Discovery Menu, a six course food and wine matching delight.

Xanadu is another with vineyard with beautiful grounds, proven by the many weddings that take place here. They’re particularly well known for their Chardonnay which has won many awards. They’re also located close to the Margaret River township and are open for lunch and dinner, making it an easy option if you think you might need to leave the car at the hotel for the day…

One of Margaret River’s and Australia’s big names is Leeuwin Estate. They produce a range of red and whites and their restaurant has won the ‘Gold Plate’ award three years running. Every year they hold the Leeuwin Estate Concert which is a major event and sells out well in advance. Performers have included Tom Jones, Ray Charles, and our very Dame Kiri. They hold smaller concerts regularly so if you feel like some live music with you vino, this is the place.

Ashbrook is a quiet, family run vineyard with a rustic Aussie feel to it. Access to the cellar door is via a red dirt road lined with majestic gum trees. The building itself is a lovely old country villa complete with ivy covered façade, straight out of McLeod’s Daughters kind of thing. They're known for their Riesling and Chardonnay, most of which gets snapped up by their loyal customers before it can get to any bottle store shelves.

The café at Hay Shed Hill is one of the few that opens for breakfast. They have a great selection of cheese to go along with their wines later in the day too.

Ok so it’s obviously not a vineyard, but if nothing other than a cold beer on a hot Margaret River day will do the trick, then this is the place to go. There’s half a dozen beers on tap and of course, tasting paddles if you can’t choose just one. Wine is on the menu, and typical pub fare such as fish and chips and pizza’s.
