Number three on the list was Margaret River;
‘The Margaret River Valley, south of Perth on Australia’s western coast, is known as much for its natural beauty and purple sunsets as for its amazing premium wines. “It’s California beach town meets Napa,” says Lulu McAllister, wine director at Nopa and Liholiho Yacht Club in San Francisco. Thanks to its proximity to the Indian Ocean, the climate is almost Mediterranean and ideal for a variety of reds and whites, from Bordeaux grapes like cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and sauvignon blanc to chardonnay and chenin blanc. A standout is the Cullen winery, where you can taste a sauvignon blanc sémillon over a meal in the garden restaurant.’
