About Us

Flying Fish Cove is a producer of premium quality, great value, passionately Margaret River wines. Located 25km north of Margaret River township, along the renowned Caves road in the Wilyabrup sub-regional area.

With two strings to its bow, Flying Fish Cove is both a specialist contract winemaking business and a producer of fine wines with its own brand.

In 2000, a group of 20 grape growers invested in the construction of the Flying Fish Cove winery, which carried out its first vintage in 2001.
The experienced winemaking staff produces wines for over 20 customers as well as the renowned Flying Fish Cove label.

We are passionately Margaret River

Margaret River is known to the locals as “The Cape Region”, with Cape Naturaliste in the north and Cape Leeuwin on the south. Our beautiful region is surrounded by oceans, the Indian and the Great Southern Ocean. The rugged coastline blends one of Australia’s finest viticultural regions, with some of the most powerful surf breaks in the world.
You will always find that people from our beautiful region are extremely proud of their land and its wineries.

The region is blessed with a climate favourable for growing premium wine grape.

Like Bordeaux, Margaret River has generous winter rains and gravely soils with the benefits of cool ocean breeze guarded by tall karri, jarrah and peppermint forests. Hail, frost and tropical storms are rare.
