Vineyard & Terroir

The fruit for our wines is sourced from two regions in Western Australia; Margaret River and the Great Southern.


Margaret River as a region is synonymous with its ability to create award winning wines, with a strong reputation and standing among the world’s best wine regions.

The coastal region has a Mediterranean climate which is strongly defined by its proximity to the Indian Ocean. Its cooling breezes mediate temperature fluctuations and humidity conditions and minimise frost risks. With an average annual rainfall of 1160mm and gravelly, gritty highly permeable soils, generally the region produces lower yielding vines and grapes with a higher concentration of fruit flavours.


A vast area stretching 150 kilometers from north to south and 100 kilometers from west to east, the Great Southern region consists of five sub regions which include Albany, Denmark, Mt Barker, Frankland and the Porongurups.

The Great Southern is Western Australia’s coolest wine growing region with fewer sunshine hours and an average annual rainfall of 750mm, significantly lower than Margaret River. Vines are grown on gravelly well drained loams where along the coast the region enjoys a maritime climate but, further inland the climate takes on a continental aspect. This inland climate brings cooler nights and warmer days with increased sunshine hours and diminished rainfalls.

These conditions result in wines that are tighter, demonstrating greater complexity than their Margaret River counterparts.

At The Winery

Howard Park Wines has been based in Denmark since its inception in 1986. Surrounded by spectacular Karri and Marri forest, the Howard Park Denmark Cellar Door is a place to welcome wine lovers and those who appreciate natural beauty. Our 1000 tonne capacity winery is situated on an historical 100 acre property, “Parkhead”, abound with native forest and accompanying kangaroos and birds.

A stylish cellar door has made special use of glass, concrete, stainless steel and timber features in its architectural design and overlooks the native forest. It is a place of tranquillity and the perfect setting to taste our wide range of award winning wines from our Howard Park, MadFish and Marchand & Burch labels. We also invite visitors and families to bring lunch or nibbles to enjoy in the winery’s surrounding parklands.
