Most wineries will have a cellar door, and the opening times are easy enough to check out in the local papers, websites and through the Margaret River Tourist Bureau.

There are a couple of bottle shops that sell local wines. I quite like Witchy Liquor, which is a cute little shop in cute, little Witchcliffe (29 Bussell Highway), south of Margaret River.
The bottle shop in Cowaramup is also very good. I bought a mixed case of wines that had won awards at the local Margaret River Show. Very interesting.
The crew at Settlers Liquor Store next door to IGA, also have a good selection of local wines. (this is across the car park from Settlers Tavern)
I also like the idea of trying different wines, and you can do that at Settlers Tavern, they apparently have 25 wines by the glass to try. Check out their page as they have won some amazing awards, currently, 2011, 'The best pub restaurant wine list' and the Gourmet Traveller wine list of the year. And, their pub nosh is very good as well.

Note: We pay for everything we try or buy, so if we like it, we will tell you. If it's not here, it probably means we haven't tried it yet. But sometimes, if I don't like it, I just don't mention it.

I first tried the Windance Shiraz at Must Margaret River, they have an excellent wine list. It was so yummy, I took Mum for a drive up to their cellar door near Yallingup. It's my kind of place, earnest, very Australian, no airs or graces, the dog is laying near the winery with one eye open, they have some quirky seating under the weeping Peppermint trees, the chooks are out on the perimeter beyond the rambling vege patch. I bought a couple of bottles of the red and Mum bought a couple of the white. Their website here.
This is one of my favourites, great wines and a very good meal. I love sitting in the restaurant and looking out over their huge expansive vineyard, a classic design and a great way to enjoy your lunch, watching the weather move across the land. My last visit was for Mary Q's birthday, we had a fantastic meal and we all went home very happy. I, of course took home a couple of reds. Their website here.
