Our Soil

The varied landscape of the Margaret River Wine Region has an abundance of small creeks and gentle valleys, as well as a profusion of native trees, shrubs and flowers.  This flora provides a degree of protection from winds blowing in from the ocean.

The principal soil type is that of the ridge which runs from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin; it is predominantly gravelly or gritty sandy loam that has formed directly from the underlying granite and gneissic rock. The soils are highly permeable when moist but moisture is quickly shed from sloping sites.
