Margaret River

Vasse, Australia

Location Head 135 nautical miles south from Perth in your superyacht and make for Geographe Bay. Here you can moor up in Busselton, a calm anchorage thanks to the protection of Cape Naturaliste. While here, enjoy the simple delights of the town, including its famed 19th-century 2.4-kilometre wooden jetty complete with underwater observatory. Then hop in a car for Margaret River.

Why it’s special Margaret River might only produce 3 per cent of Australia’s annual wine production, but it accounts for more than 20 per cent of the nation’s premium wine.

What to look for Three of Australia’s nest producers can be found here: Cullen Wines, Vasse Felix and Leeuwin Estate. This is a three-stop shop, so make sure you visit them all.

Best bit Each of these three wineries has a spectacular restaurant attached, serving remarkable food matched with their wines.

Top tip Take a case of each of these wines back to your yacht: 2015 Cullen Wines Vanya Cabernet Sauvignon; 2014 Vasse Felix Tom Cullity Cabernet Sauvignon; 2015 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay.
