Blackwood Valley Wine Region


autumn in vineyard The picturesque Blackwood Valley Wine Region is nestled in the heart of the South West of Western australia.

Undoubtedly the most scenic wine region in the state of Western Australia, the Blackwood Valley is home to 19 wine producers and 50 vineyards.

With plantings in excess of 450 hectares of premium varieties the most prominent grape varieties of the region include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. There are smaller plantings of Riesling, Viognier and Pinot Noir.
Vines were first planted in the Blackwood Valley over 30 years ago, and the region has been producing quality fruit and wines ever since. The unique flavours of the area are characterised with earthy undertones in the cabernet and shiraz and golden honey flavours in white wine varieties.
Take the time to discover our region and learn the stories of the vine and wine from the owners and makers of this great wine country.
