When you take a road trip en route along The Edge, you’ll meet all sorts of local characters who will give you a glimpse into their world. They will tell you their Stories Along The Edge.
In the Margaret River Region, meet local tour operator Sean Blocksidge, otherwise known as The River Guide.
The association between Margaret River wine and the town’s namesake river lives in Sean Blocksidge as naturally as Chardonnay and Margaret River Mouth sunsets. Sean definitely isn’t alone in making the connection between wine and geography. (Terroir, anyone?) But as the owner and operator of The Margaret River Discovery Co., Sean presents the story in a unique light.
“Everything I do as a tourism operator is shaped by the environment,” Sean explains. “It’s wanting to showcase the best of Margaret River and then trying to connect that back to why the wines from Margaret River are so special – to show they are a total reflection of the landscape and of the geology and of the climate.”
And of the people.
