Wine regions - Blackwood Valley

Blackwood Valley   Western Australia

The Blackwood Valley is a small region located along the banks of the Blackwood River. White wine varieties predominate.

The Blackwood River flows through the centre of the region. On and near its banks are the towns of Bridgetown and Boyup Brook around which most of the region's vineyards and wineries centre. This is a young region with the first vines being planted in 1976 by Max Fairbrass.

The climate is Mediterranean with dry summers and wet winters. Soils are varied reflecting its topography. Alluvial soils deposited on the floors of steep sided valleys and more gravelly thinner soil on the slopes. The elevation varies from 100 to 340 metres.

Grape varieties represented in the region include Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Harvest time: late February to early April
