READ ABOUT Pemberton...

The Pemberton wine region lies in a scenic pocket of WA, 330km south of Perth. Vineyards are set amidst towering karri forests, national parks, rivers, lakes and estuary waters. While viticulture emerged as recently as the early 1980s, the young region has quickly earned a reputation for premium wine. Richly flavoured chardonnay and more recently, shiraz are the major source of excitement. Merlot and cabernet sauvignon show good character and definition as single varietals. They are often found together in the traditional WA blend. Sauvignon blanc, semillon and pinot noir are also planted.

Pemberton lies just off the remote D'Entrecasteaux coast, situated between the Margaret River, Manjimup and Great Southern regions. The climate is warm, with a cooling maritime influence and gentle elevations of 100-200 metres. High rainfall means irrigation is only minimally required. The Warren and Donnelly rivers flow through the region, along with multiple brooks and smaller rivulets. Pemberton plays host to approximately 850 ha of vineyard. Soils consist of gravelly sands, heavy black loams and fertile red karri loams formed from gneissic rock.

The climbing trees are a unique natural tourist attraction not far from the township of Pemberton. Situated in the heart of old growth National Park forests, the ancient trees range from 51-75 metres tall. They are known as the Diamond Tree, Gloucester Tree and Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree. Each one is pegged with around 300 rungs to afford climbers a lofty birds eye view from the heights.
