About The Great Southern

The Great Southern is an immense wine region spanning 150km north to south, and 100km east to west. More than 40 cellar doors are dotted throughout Albany, Denmark, Frankland River, Mt Barker and Porongorup. Climates range from strongly maritime influenced to moderately continental, and this, combined with an ever-changing topography, aids in the production of a wide variety of high quality grapes. The region however is especially renowned for riesling and shiraz.
