Western Australia to be Showcased in Best of Margaret River


In November, Western Australia will be highlighted in a new food and wine event in the Margaret River Wine Region in Australia’s South West.

“Australia has a few good food and wine festivals, but Margaret River Gourmet Escape will be a truly international standard event, providing a fantastic attraction for locals and visitors,” Stephanie Buckland, CEO, Tourism Western Australia said.

The four-day event will include guest like the owner of the famous Fat Duck restaurant in the United Kingdom, Heston Blumenthal, and owner of world’s number one ranked restaurant for the third time, Noma, Rene Redzepi from Denmark as well as many high profile Australian chefs and celebrities.

Simone Horgan-Furlong of Leeuwin Estate Winery, which will play host to the Gourmet Village, said, “Margaret River is making wines that are being recognized alongside the great regions of the world, yet we’re still such a youthful industry. To have this kind of benchmark festival created within our region to showcase what we do, and bring the world’s leading identities in food and wine to the district – it’s a very exciting proposal.”
