Built in 1976 by Diana and Kevin Cullen, we extend to you an invitation to stay in the Cullen Wines Homestead. Located just a short walk from the winery in Wilyabrup, the Cullen Wines Homestead has six bedrooms, two bathrooms and can sleep up to twelve guests.
The peaceful country surroundings set the scene for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.
Winegrowing began on the Cullen property in Margaret River over 40 years ago. On the advice of eminent agronomist Dr John Gladstones, Dr. Kevin and Diana Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup in 1966.
The encouraging results of this led to the planting of 18 acres of vines on their sheep and cattle farm in 1971.
The philosophy of Cullen Wines is to search for the best quality expression of the vineyard in the wine. The maritime climate, rocky soils, dry farming and biodynamic practices all help to create individual and diverse wine styles which are unique to Cullen.
Our vineyards and winery are certified A Grade Biodynamic by the Biological Farmers Association of Australia.
Amazing fruit!! During this vintage, all of the cabernet sauvignon crop was harvested over the full moon fruit days of 7th, 8th and 9th March. It was an enormous effort to hand process this amount of fruit in this short time… and it was very hot.
Everyone was in great spirits and we enjoyed very good days in the field and the sheds. It is always that way when the Diana Madeline cabernet sauvignon fruit comes into the winery - everyone's mood lifts being a part of that wonderful fruit!
