The Margaret River wine region is well-known for its premium varieties, producing 80 per cent of the region's wine. Wine is also produced in the Geographe (8 per cent), Pemberton (8 per cent) and Blackwood Valley (2 per cent) areas.

The region's vineyards produce both red and white variety of wines.

Wine tourism is popular in the South West, with many people taking up the opportunity to enjoy a glass of Semillon or Shiraz in the picturesque region that produced it.
