Australia in pictures: Western Australia30th May, 2014 by Gabriel Savage
After roaming from the wine regions of Victoria and across South Australia, the James Busby Travel group made the long journey to Perth to round off the trip in style.
While Margaret River may be the state’s most high profile wine region, with the highest density of wineries, there was the chance to get to grips with styles from the eight other wine regions of WA (can you name them?), including the sprawling Great Southern.
The WA phase kicked off at Cullen, one of Margaret River’s founding producers, where we arrived in time to see the latest batch of cow horns being buried. Having begun converting to organic viticulture back in 1999, the 28-hectare estate embraced biodynamics back in 2003 and now extends this sustainable approach to this vegetable garden, which provides much of the produce for its restaurant.
