    Cullen Wines

    Caves Road, Cowaramup, WA 6284
    Kevin and Di Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup in 1966 to form Cullen Wines. The encouraging results of this led to the planting of 18 acres of vines in 1971, including their first Cabernet vines. Daughter Vanya Cullen, took over the winemaking in 1989 and Cullen Wines has evolved into an estate specialising in single vineyard, premium quality wines, focused on wine integrity, rather than rapid expansion. The vineyards are grown using biodynamic techniques and have "A" Grade Organic Certification with the BFA. The restaurant overlooks the historic vineyard and in keeping with the organic philosophy in the vineyard, all dishes are prepared using fresh, organic produce that is sourced from their own garden and select local producers. Grape varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc. Wines: Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Mangan, Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. More

There are numerous bridges in the five kilometres north of Margaret River crossing a major river and creeks and streams of varying sizes. As it was a railway, the gradient is relatively flat, and the terrain is gentle. This trail is easy to navigate and has picnic areas along the way.
