The staff greet you warmly and the menu and wines on offer tempt you into whiling away an afternoon sitting on the long verandah or under the peppermint trees, watching the vines breathe and whisper around you.
Cullen Wines was the first winery in Margaret River to offer visitors a taste of local fare with their wines, as far back as 1976, when the family put together simple cheese platters, pastries and soups to welcome their visitors. The tradition of welcoming guests from all over the world with fine wine and pure local fare continues today, and the reputation Cullen has for producing exquisite food has grown.
Fruit, herbs, vegetables and ‘bush tucker’ is nurtured in the extensive biodynamic garden on the grounds, and our chefs can often seen dashing from the kitchen to select the freshest of ingredients straight from the garden. The highly experienced Kitchen Team are led by Executive Chef Colin Anderson, and together they create awe inspiring dishes that combine the simplest of local and organic ingredients to produce dishes that complement our wines perfectly, and stay with you long after you have left Wilyabrup.

“It was lovely to experience the Cullen winery last Thursday.Please pass on my appreciation and thanks to Nicolas for a fantastic tour & tasting of your winery at Cullen. Just walking through the vineyard and seeing the vines, as well as your organic garden, was truly an experience. The Cullen winery is so immaculately groomed and maintained, itis no wonder that your wines are so delicious, especially Diana Madeline, which is my favourite Cabernet. As Cullen is only approximately forty years old, the region itself and Cullen will only become even more exceptional.
“Experiencing your food in your restaurant after the tour, was also a wonderful experience, and your team there managed to assign a table outside on the balcony for us to enjoy our delicious lunch.
“We could not fault your food, every dish was so fresh and delicious, and beautifully presented. It is not only the excellent skills of your chefs, but also the love and nurturing that you give to your organic garden really shines, and of course your wines.
“My fiancée and I cannot wait to revisit your winery again soon.”
“16 years ago we celebrated our ‘day after the wedding’ with 40 very close friends from Sydney, Milan, New York, Perth and Sweden and family from the southwest. Cullen Winery long benches and wonderful wines and the outstanding food and service were highlights remembered about our Wedding Party – and sprawling under the beautiful trees and on the grass.
“How lovely to do the same on our 16th wedding anniversary on Sunday with just a few friends and experience the very same quality and care. I was bowled over by the barramundi and Pemberton maron – it was perfect in every way – the crisp skin, the perfectly cooked fish, the delicate yet robust texture of the marron, the tomato saute – and the rose was a sophisticated touch to a late lunch. A BIG thank you for the consistent attention to every detail – and memories of the scones and mulberry jam will linger! We of course come more often than every 16 years! Thank you.”
