Chris has thought intently about every aspect of the vineyard, the interplay between the pitch of the land, soil, varietal, clones, natural tree lines for acid retention, row orientation and aspect for complexity. The vines are dry farmed allowing the ancient laterite, clay and granite soils to shine through and imbue our finished wines. As a viticulturist Chris’s focus has and always will be the vineyard, it is a simple yet complex philosophy, where respect for the site and natural ecosystem is paramount.
THE PETIT ECO CABIN
Adults Only Retreat.
One cabin, nestled into the bush near the lake, overlooking our certified organic vineyard.
The perfect escape for singles and couples, the bed looks out of the waterfall window, framing the night sky and surrounding trees. Every window has been positioned to take advantage of farm and vineyard views without compromising privacy.
With one of the most central locations in the Margaret River Wine Region the cabin is a one of a kind getaway. Dappled light streams in from the many windows without compromising privacy. A day bed both inside and out makes the perfect space to sit back and immerse yourself in this special location, no matter the weather. You will find a vintage outdoor bath tucked away in the surrounding landscape complete with running hot water and for winter a cosy fireplace complete with a bakers oven. In an effort to minimise our impact on the environment the cabin was positioned to take advantage of the Northern sun and cooling sea breezes. It captures and stores it’s own rainwater, grey water is recycled onto the newly planted fruit trees and a solar hot water system provides the hot water for the cabin. The timber inside the cabin comes from a family farm, milled by my Father from trees that had fallen over the last twenty years. The cabin has been crafted from start to finish with bespoke fixtures, fittings and décor all made here in Australia by artisans of their craft, utilising sustainable methods of production.
Slow down and disconnect from the busyness of everyday life, there is no WIFI or Television in the cabin.
Please note the cabin is not suitable for children or pets due to the delicate nature of the furnishings, the lake and farm animals close by. No exceptions will be made.
