Australia: the wine region nestled in the superyacht mecca

In Australia boats and bottles are plentiful supply. It is easy to see why the western coast around Perth is a superyacht mecca. Venture up the Swan River; head out to car-free Rottnest Island; spend a morning on Cottesloe’s sandy beach and an afternoon in bohemian Fremantle before heading south to Margaret River.

Here, where the Indian and Southern oceans meet, is wine and surf country and although Margaret River might only contribute a paltry three per cent of Australia’s annual wine production, it accounts for more than 20 per cent of the country’s premium vino.

Vasse Felix, the winery that started the Margaret River revolution in the late 1960s, goes from strength to strength. Match the exquisite wines with food in what is probably the finest cellar-door restaurant in the region. Leeuwin Estate’s Art Series Chardonnay has a claim to be the finest in Australia. Taste it and the rest of the range before Leeuwin’s shirt-popping five-course degustation menu.

Proudly biodynamic, carbon neutral and naturally powered, Cullen Wines is a true pioneer. Sip the exemplary wines overlooking the original vineyard and if you have room left, dine at five-star country retreat Cape Lodge, where culinary genius Tony Howell cooks legendary meals.
