Food & Wine Trail
Denmark has long been the hidden jewel in Western Australia's crown - but now the secret is well and truly out.
Come and explore Western Australia's NEW wine capital.
Vine-studded countryside producing internationally acclaimed wine and fresh produce describes one of the many facets of Denmark, Western Australia.
If you are a wine connoisseur or just enjoy the occasional tipple, are culinary adept or simply like food - you have just found paradise. Begin your journey of discovery through the Denmark food and wine appellation; there is nothing else like it.
Denmark has become a major wine producing area, gaining an international reputation for the quality and distinct regional characteristics of its premium wines. An attractive climate with warm summers and mild winters means you don't have to travel half way around the globe to appreciate the Mediterranean flavours of high-quality food and wine. Denmark is one of the five dynamic sub-regions of the Great Southern, providing visitors with a unique food and wine experience.
In recent years, Denmark's wine has taken Australia's wine shows by storm with exceptional riesling, chardonnay, shiraz, cabernet and pinot noir. Vineyards nestle between mixed farming operations and agro forestry, and surrounded by pristine national parks. Wines can be sampled and purchased at the cellar doors of the local wineries.
Teamed with these superlative wines, Denmark prides itself on a diverse range of fresh produce. Indulge in fare made with fresh fruits, fish, marron, home-grown meats and dairy products. Berries, olive oils, cherries and asparagus are seasonal favourites.
Stop at roadside stalls or drop into one of the many businesses that sell and offer tastings of preserves, pickles, vinegars, cheeses, fudge, honey, chocolates, and a large assortment of gourmet products that complement every meal.
Spend your days exploring the wineries, restaurants and gourmet produce sellers for which Denmark is so renowned.
Denmark is truly a food and wine lovers paradise. A visit is not complete without tasting the delectable local fresh produce and spending a lazy afternoon in the vineyards. Visit the Denmark Visitor Centre for a map or click here.
