We are Chris, Jo, Lucas & Violette Davies, a young Western Australian family running a farm, and a vineyard. We have a holistic ecosystem approach emphasising biodiversity and sustainability and we look forward to giving you an insight into our lives as farmers, grape growers and artisan wine producers.
Chris creates wines of uncompromising quality with a true sense of place, and we take great pride in traditionally processing our wines by hand from the grape to the bottle. A classic vigneron, Chris is completely alone both in the vineyard and in the winery.
Our entire range of wines is available only at cellar door. (105)

We are Jamie and Lara McCall and we love to share our piece of Margaret River.

We planted vines in 2001, concentrating on Italian varieties, Vermentino and Zinfandel. The farm is certified organic and we make wine onsite only from Burnside grapes, ensuring complete quality control. Wine tasting at Burnside Organic Farm will immerse you in the world of natural wine. Wild ferments, no filtering or fining, and minimal sulphur let the grapes speak for themselves. The farm also has orchards, a market garden and geese grazing in the vineyards. (90)

A collaboration of six small family wineries sharing similar values and philosophies, producing single site wines reflective of the land we love. On your journey you will have the rare opportunity to meet many of the families involved and uncover the hidden gems of the Margaret River region. 

We all have our own vineyard and use only these grapes to produce our wines, going one step further and processing at least our red wines on our own properties, giving us complete control over the production process. We are true grape to bottle producers with family members working across all aspects of the business. The passion that we have for our land and what we produce from it shines in our bespoke, highly acclaimed wines. 

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our stories.

Trail is a good idea, however the region covered is quite large, and there are many small family wineries, so I would suggest you divide the region into North and South and cover more wineries. We were staying in Dunsborough and only able to visit the first two wineries as the others were too far away.
Windows was enjoyable, but unfortunately Arimia turned us away because we took our dog. The dog-friendly symbol should be removed from this winery. It was very disappointing because there is a long drive in on a gravel road.

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
