Blackwood Valley Wine Region is located in the South West Australia Wine Zone, about 250 Km south east of Perth. It includes the smaller regions of Nannup, Balingup, Boyupbrook, and Bridgetown.
This region is due east of Margaret River with which it shares a similar climate, but slightly more continental effects, hence a greater diurnal and annual variation in temperature. The higher elevation of some vineyards - up to 340m - means that some vines are exposed to cooler climates.
Blackwood Valley is bounded on the north west by Geographe and on the south by Manjimup wine regions.
The main towns in the region are Boyup Brook, Bridgetown and Nannup.
Like its neighbour Margaret River the varietal profile of this region is dominated by the classic varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Chardonnay. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are also common, often in blends.
There are only a few wineries in the region, much of the production of the region is sold to outside wineries.
Below are the wineries using alternative varieties.
This region can be visited by combining it with tours of Geographe or Margaret River Wine Regions or as a stop on the way to the Manjimup, Pemberton or the various subregions of The Great Southern.
