If you’re reading this, collecting inspiration for your next trip, you’ve likely already enjoyed the fine wine, hospitality and art collections of the region’s best known wineries.
Vasse Felix, Cullen Wine, Voyager Estate et al offer incredible experiences, but curious wine lovers are rewarded for taking the quiet back roads, searching for the secret cellar doors of the Margaret River Region. Some of these cellar doors are small and it’s a good idea to book ahead, especially if you’re visiting as a group, and expect to pay a small fee which is usually refundable against a bottle purchase. Add a cheese and charcuterie platter to a seated wine tasting, and it feels a lot like a mini-degustation.
Here are thirteen splendid secret cellar doors, and there’s plenty more to find for yourself. If you love these recommendations ask them for their favourites, and pick up a map from the Busselton or Margaret River visitor centres.
