Margaret River is one of the unique wine regions in the world that can grow vines on their own root system due to the absence of the vine pest Phylloxera (fil-ox-era). The minute aphid-like pest attacks grapevine roots and causes decline in vine health and ultimately impedes the vine’s capacity to produce.
Please ensure you protect Margaret River from phylloxera whilst visiting our region. Please do not enter vineyards without permission and observe Phylloxera protocols during your visit.
