Background To Manjimup's Wine Industry: Today Manjimup is known for its cherries, truffles and wine. In the 1970s Manjimup began developing its wine industry but the real boom began   in the 1980s when  Manjimup was identified as the best grape growing region in Western Australia due to its warm, dry summers and wet, cool winters and well drained soils.Yanmah Ridge Vineyard was the first commercial vineyard established in Manjimup. Interestingly, most vineyards in Manjimup are located at an elevation of about 300 m above sea level.
