New Year, New Travel: Margaret River Is Where It’s At!
As the new year rolled in, many folks may have decided on a resolution to take 2021 with a large pinch of salt. This may be the best foot forward considering life-altering changes our planet witnessed last year.
But as things take on a different shape, we humans will do what is necessary to adapt and adhere – all in the name of coveted bucket lists. With this in mind, the magic that is Margaret River and its most trusted local guide, Margies Big Day Out, have taken on an approach that protects their people and the guests they love to welcome.
Margaret River is the major wine region in southwest Western Australia, with 5,017 hectares under vine and over 200 wineries.
The Margaret River Wine region is made up predominantly of boutique size wine producers; although winery operations range from the smallest crushing 3.5 tonnes per year to the largest around 7000 tonnes.
Ride The Day Tour Wave
Russell Hogan, the owner of Margies Big Day Out, and his team of tipple-tasting connoisseurs are all about creating a coastal experience that makes parting with the breathtaking scenery of this region a difficult task.
Their Beer & Wine Tour is not another one of those hop-on-hop-off and drink-’til-you-drop scenarios. Plenty of consideration goes into their itineraries that take guests through some of the world’s most innovative and award-winning breweries and wineries.
It’s a big day out for the lads, the ladies, families, and employees who want to break free from the Zoom cycle of the last 9 months. There is plenty to see and savor in between all the swirling, smelling, and sipping as Margies Big Day Out leads the way to all the places that matter most.
It is here where wine connoisseurs leave with bottles of their favourite varietals that are only available for purchase at local cellar doors.
Beer lovers will quench that big thirst and send their taste buds into meltdown, sipping all the frothy flavours from local breweries around the region on tour.
Hopping on a safety-and-hygiene-guaranteed Margie’s tour shuttle also include the following:
- Gourmet lunch included & served at a boutique brewery.
- Enjoy cold beer & cider tasting over lunch.
- Premium wine tasting at three venues.
- Cheese tastings.
- A sweet touch of Chocolate tasting.
- Doorstep to doorstep pick-up and drop-off.
Some of the venues on the Margies Big Day Out Beer & Wine Tour are subject to change, but they mostly rely on the list below to showcase the craftsmanship of the region’s pride and joy:
Tassell Park, Brookwood Estate, Evans & Tate Wines, Hayshed Hill, Burch Family Wines, Fermoy Estate, Flametree Wines, Swings & Roundabouts, Windance Estate Wines, Churchview Estate, Amelia Park, Bootleg Brewery, Black Brewing Co, The Beer Farm, Colonial Brewing Co., Cheeky Monkey Brewery & Cidery, The Brewhouse, Bush Shack Brewery, and more.
If the idea of group tours may seem like a risky move in the current climate we are experiencing, opt for private charter tours that caters to groups of friends, colleagues and family along the region. Leave it up to Margies to curate an itinerary, or simply direct the shuttle driver (politely) to all the places of interest that need to be ticked off on the list of things to see, sample and savour.
