The Blackwood Valley Wine Region of Western Australia was recognised in December 1998. The region covers the Local Government Shires of Boyup Brook, Bridgetown-Greenbushes, Nannup and the southern part of Donnybrook-Balingup. The district generally follows the middle reaches of the renowned Blackwood River Valley. There are more than 50 vineyards and than 12 wineries in the region, ranging from small boutique wineries to large commercial operators. The main varieties grown are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. There are smaller plantings such as Riesling, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Pinot Noir. The region features rolling green pastures, meandering rivers, towering forests, and rich fruit orchards. The area is very popular with tourists attracted by its ideal conditions and
facilities for picnics, BBQs, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, scenic drives, camping and bushwalking. Also in the area is the Boyup Brook Grapevine, which is a huge grape vine, which maybe the largest in Australia and possibly the largest in the world. It is located on a farm about 8 km out of Boyup Brook just off the Donnybrook Road.
