As everyone knows, it’s not the size of the wine region that matters; it’s the magic that it weaves. Manjimup sure has managed to pack a modest region full of enchanting wines of great diversity.

Knock on any cellar door in the area and you never know what you’ll find. A cheeky, cherry cabernet sauvignon, an audacious merlot or a delightful chardonnay, sauvignon blanc or Verdelho. Probably matched with a dish containing truffles.

The region’s climate is somewhat similar to Bordeaux and the soil conditions have also proved favourable for producing high quality food crops, fruit and vegetables.

The impressive local bushland and attractive walking trails are also responsible for drawing in a continual stream of tourists, so the local businesses are attuned to welcoming visitors.
