In Detail

The Credaro Family have been making wine for their family since settling in Margaret River in the 1920s. Commercial operations began in the 1980s and these days the family manages 140 hectares of vines over seven vineyards throughout Margaret River.

The Credaro Family Estate Fragola (an Italian red variety) is a special wine, rich with family history. Cesar Credaro was the first generation of the family to reside in the Margaret River area in the 1920s. With the help of the family, he took some Fragola cuttings from a small vineyard in Yallingup where he worked and planted an acre at Carbunup, from which the family would make a parcel of wine every year for family and friends. The Fragola has evolved from site to site with each generation of the family, but a wine is made each year out of tradition!

The Wines
Credaro’s winemaking approach involves selecting the fruit best parcels from their vineyards to make the best regional wines each vintage. The grapes planted are Margaret River’s leading varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Merlot. Two special plots of Fragola and Gewurtztraminer are also planted. Credaro Family Wines make all of their wines onsite in their winery in Northern Margaret River.

The Tuscan-style Cellar Door is located 10 minutes from Dunsborough and takes in spectacular views of the Wildwood Valley, ideal for a picnic lunch on the Estate’s expansive, manicured lawn.
