Located just 2 hours south of Perth, the Geographe Wine Region, is fast earning a reputation as one of Western Australia's most exciting new wine regions. Spanning from Harvey in the North to Busselton in the South and out to Donnybrook in the East, the region hugs the Geographe Bay with the cooling afternoon sea breezes being a hallmark of a long stable growing season.
Whilst one of Australia's most geographically diverse regions, a common theme resonates across the region of smaller vineyards and wineries owned and operated by the families you meet at the cellar doors, Wine Shows and Exhibitions. The people behind the wine labels of Geographe are passionate and proud of their Region and what it produces and also where Geographe wines are placed in the Australian and world wine scene.
