Dunsborough is a great place to visit and somewhere most Perthians escape to at least once a year. There are beautiful beaches to explore, lots of fantastic artisan food producers (anything from cheese to chocolate and bread to berries), art & craft galleries and a choice of stylish boutique hotels or holiday villas to stay at.
Even if Nick and I are not big wine connoisseurs we always visit at least one of the many wineries for a tasting. 30% of Australia’s premium wines are produced in the Margaret River area so it’s easy to find a wine that you’ll love.
The experience varies widely, from large tasting areas at the best-known wineries, to more informal Cellar Door shops. I particularly enjoy the smaller wineries where you might have a personal tasting with the owner surrounded by vats and barrels.
We drove down Caves Road and stopped at Stormflower Vineyard as we’ve bought their Dry Red in Perth a few times and really enjoyed it.
The tasting area at Stormflower reflects their bout...
