Cullen Wines was established by Diana and Kevin Cullen who began experimenting with viticulture in 1966 following various research reports that suggested Margaret River's climate was similar to that of Bordeaux. Encouraging results led the pair to plant 18 acres of vines on their sheep and cattle farm in 1971 to establish Cullen Wines. Daughter Vanya became chief winemaker in 1989 and has earnt a reputation as one of Australia's most awarded winemakers.
In 2005, the iconic Diana Madeline Cabernet Merlot was awarded the top Langton's Classification category of 'Exceptional', one of a handful of Australia's best wines to hold this status. The Kevin John Chardonnay 2007 was awarded the World's Best Chardonnay at the 2010 Decanter World Wine Awards. Both wines have received a host of international awards, judged against the world's best wines.
The wines are estate-grown from Cullen Wines' two A Grade Biodynamic (BFA) certified vineyards in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. The philosophy is to search for the best quality expression of the vineyard in the wine. Quality is paramount, and every winemaking step reflects Cullen Wines' approach to do whatever it takes to make the most outstanding wines. Cabernet Sauvignon (and blends) and Chardonnay are the focus.
