Frankland River

Home to some of the oldest grapevines in Western Australia, the Frankland River wine region is one of the five subregions of the Great Southern, Western Australia and is located at the northwestern corner of the region. In 1956, the wine growing potential of this land was first determined by a renowned viticulturalist from the United States called Dr. Harold Olmo. He noted that the climate was similar to that of Bordeaux, France, where the summers are cool which holds the key to excellent grape ripening conditions.

The river valley of this region plays an important part to the climate of the region. During the winter and spring time, it creates air circulation between the land and sea that keeps the frost at bay, which help reduce problems of vine frosting. In the summer, the river valley helps funnel cool air north from the ocean that helps cool down the grapevines during the afternoon heat, prolonging the ripening period for wine grapes. Thanks to its relatively warm mediterranean climate, the Frankland River region holds the most ideal conditions for producing the high quality wines the area is celebrated for, such as Riesling, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
