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.
