This country is a land of great contrast. At the heart, its dry, red soil desert provides a great source of warmth which drifts across to the lush coastal regions.

Baily & Baily wines originate from some of the most iconic regions in Australia well known locally and abroad for creating exceptional quality wines.

Producing some of the world’s most awarded wines, Margaret River benefits from many rain-free days during the growing season and relatively even temperatures throughout the ripening season.
