climate The Frankland River Region in the Great Southern Wine Region is located near the townships of Frankland, Kojonup and Rocky Gully, North of Denmark. The delightful Frankland River Wine Region boasts rolling hills, rich and productive farming land, a wonderful range of wineries with cellar doors, spectacular natural forest and bushland areas for camping and bushwalking, and spectacular native wildflower displays in Spring. Located about 360 km south of Perth, the Frankland River wineries are booming and the area is quickly becoming one of Western Australia`s most successful and renowned wine producing regions. While a diverse range of grape varieties are grown, the region is most noted for its Shiraz and Riesling and to a lesser extent Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon blanc. Visitors can spend the day visiting some wonderful modern cellar facilities including those at Bobtail Ridge, Alkoomi, Ferngrove and Frankland Estate and taste first hand the distinct flavours the region has to offer. The Frankland River area was the birthplace of the Great Southern wine region. The area was recommended as a table grape growing area by Harold Olmo an American viticulturalist . The soils are mostly the local 'marri' type, that are derived from granite. The climate is Mediterranean, and because the region is well inland, there are virtually no maritime influences. Harvest time is from mid March to mid April. Local wineries in the area include: Alkoomi, Ferngrove Vineyards, Frankland Estate, Frankland River Vineyards (Palandri), Frankland Valley Vineyard, Houghton (Frankland River), Karri Oak Vineyard, Lange's Vineyard and Olive Grove, Marron View Wines.

The Great Southern Wine Region includes eleven districts : Albany ; Denmark ; Frankland River ; Cranbrook ; Mount Barker ; Porongurup ; Walpole ; Broomehill ; Borden ; Redmont ; Mount Barker West
