The Wilyabrup Valley

The heart of Margaret River.

The Wilyabrup Valley is a series of gentle slopes found alongside tributaries to the Wilyabrup Brook.

Vines prosper on the Wilyabrup soils. The gravel subsoil ensures good drainage, while the high clay content enables good water retention throughout summer.

The weather in the Wilyabrup Valley is characterised by high winter rainfall and long dry summers. The Indian Ocean surrounds the region to the north and west, prodviding a moderating effect on the temperature.

The Wilyabrup Valley

Why it’s unique

The Wilyabrup Valley is one of many sub-regions of Margaret River. Its unique location makes it the sweet spot for growing vines.

  • The Wilyabrup Brook creates a consistent soil temperature, this in turn creates a unique microclimate.

  • Perfect combination of soil, creating ideal water deficit stress.

  • Southerly breeze dries fruit after rain, reducing rot and eradicating frost.

  • The high clay content of soil means our grapes retain more natural acidity
