The Cullen Dinner, with Emma Cullen

 

 

 

Four course dinner

Timing: Aperitif 7pm, sit down 7:30

Dress code: Smart Casual

Price: £95.00

We are absolutely delighted to receive tonight Emma Cullen of Cullen winery, the famous winery in the Margaret River on the west coast of Australia.

Margaret River benefits from a maritime climate and overall has excellent conditions to grow a large number of grape varieties.

In the Mid 1960’s Dr Jones Gladstones, a renowned agriculturist, proved conclusively that the Margaret region would be perfect for viticulture and especially for top quality wines.

In 1966, Diana and Kevin Cullen became involved in Dr Gladstones project and started to grow their vines in the sub-region of Wilyabrup.  In 1971, they were planting even more Cabernet and Riesling, the only grape available at this time in the region.  It was in the late 1970’s that they really expanded their production to other grapes such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot.

In 1983, Vania Cullen, daughter of Diana and Kevin, was named assistant wine maker for Cullen winery.  She also travelled in California and Burgundy to take part in a few vintages at well regarded producers such and Robert Mondavi and Maison Drouhin.

As we say the rest is history.  Cullen winery is regarded as a leader of the Australian wine industry and its wines are iconic.  Indeed, the wines have won many awards and one of Cullen's wine is in the top part of the famed Langton’s wine classification.  All the work in the vineyard follows Biodynamic principles

Tonight Emma, working in England to represent the family estates will showcase a range of Cullen wines and will tell us more about the winery.

An evening not to be missed!
