climate The Peel Wine Region, extends along the coast south of Perth to Preston Beach and Waroona, and including the areas inland from Mandurah and Rockingham. The Region is just perfect as a day trip destination, for a weekend away or for tourists wanting to tour the wineries in the area. Chenin Blanc and Shiraz the some of the region`s favourites. The region includes the Peel Inlet, just south of Mandurah., with the township of Williams on its eastern boundary The climate is generally Mediterranean, but varies as you go further inland away from the coast and as the cooling and moderating effects of the ocean and sea breezes diminish. The soils vary from loams and gravelly soils in inland areas, to 'tuart' sandy soil on the coast. Some early vineyards were established during the 1930s by Italian immigrants. However most of the modern development occurred in the1970s. The region`s reputation for fine wines is mostly built on Chardonnay, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Verdelho, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Harvest time is generally from mid February to mid March. Maximum temperatures during summer average 29 degrees C and the average minimum is 17.9 degrees C. On the coastal plain, the mean annual rainfall is 900 mm and this increases to 1,400 mm on the Darling Scarp. Inland there are generally about 40 to 50 frost nights per year.

The Peel Wine Region includes two districts : Mandurah - West Peel ; Wandering - East Peel
