“The Best of Margaret River Wine Region”

Western Australia


2 Nights/3 Days

ABOUT LUXE

Margaret River has become one of Australia’s favourite food, wine and nature rich destinations, with 25% of the premium wines coming from an area just 20 km wide and 100 km long.  There are over 100 cellar doors, 30 winery restaurants and a dozen micro breweries to choose from, but rather than test them all, we’ve selected the “Best of Margaret River” for your enjoyment.

 

Your host John Bradbury is a local of over 20 years, having managed hundreds of small tours and events, and the regions annual Wine Festival, so you’re in very good hands.  Dozens of chefs and celebrities have visited the region and just last year Nigella Lawson left saying...

 

“I’d happily travel the 9,000 miles from London for a glass of anything from Cullen Winery.”
