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)

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.
