climate The Pemberton Wine District is located about half way between Margaret River and Albany, in the South West corner of Western Australia. The vineyards are centred around the three townships, Manjimup, Pemberton and Northcliffe. This area is famous for the huge Kauri tree at Pemberton, with a rope ladder and look out point. The high rainfall and deep red loams in the area, give rise to Western Australia's tallest, most majestic forest. Most of the vineyards lie between the Warren River in the centre of the region and the Donnelly River in the north. The soil is so good it can cause 'excessive vigour' in the vines which vignerons overcome by lowering irrigation rates and by selective hard pruning. Pemberton has a warm maritime climate, with temperatures moderated by elevations between 100 m and 200 m. Most rainfall falls in winter making irrigation necessary during the growing season. The key varieties that are successful in the area are the white varieties - Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho and the reds Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Most wineries are established in the river valleys on slopes adjoining the majestic forests that provide shelter from winds. The rolling countryside at the end of the Darling scarp is transected by the Warren and Donnelly Rivers and their numerous tributary streams. The scenery is stunning.

The Pemberton Wine Region includes four districts : Pemberton-West ; Pemberton-Central ; Qunninup ; Northcliffe
