Pursuit of perfection at heart of new ‘The Winemaker’ trilogy

A new trilogy of films entitled ‘The Winemaker’ uncovers stories of perseverance and passion within the Margaret River region winemaking community.

To be released online during September and October 2017 via margaretriver.com/winemaker, the films, created over a period of twelve months from April 2016 – April 2017, offer a unique chance to follow the personal and professional journeys of three extraordinary winemakers; Vanya Cullen (Chief Winemaker/Owner/Managing Director, Cullen Wines); Virginia Willcock (Chief Winemaker, Vasse Felix) and Josephine Perry (Winemaker/Owner, Dormilona).

While locals of our famed surf region may be known for their laid back, easy-going nature, these candid interviews reveal the unrelenting quest for excellence and tireless ‘pursuit of beauty’ which have helped Margaret River wines to become some of the most renowned and highly awarded in Australia.
