Karridale Wine District

The Karridale District includes wineries near the townships of Karridale, Alexandra Bridge and Kudardup, east of the Bussell Highway. Karridale is a small tourist and service town with a rich history linked with the timber industry. Boasting the Boranup Forest and the stunning Hamelin Bay on its doorstep the area is very popular with tourists. Just a short distance along Brockman Highway is a wonderful collection of local art and craft galleries, wood artisans and wineries, set amongst the majestic karri trees on Caves Road. Close by is the Boranup Maze that is very popular with the whole family, especially children. Hamelin Bay is a fascinating place to visit with the remains of the wooden jetty that once were the port for sailing ships that loaded timber cut from the forests. Hamelin Bay showcases the timber export heritage of the area. Hamelin Bay also has one of the most spectacular beaches in the area framed with stunning limestone cliffs. Karridale is also the gateway to the majestic Boranup Forest. The huge trees that line the roadside are not old-growth trees but 100-year regrowth. The forest was originally milled during the late 1800s timber boom.

The Margaret River Wine Region includes nineteen districts: Dunsburough ; Busselton ; Yallingup West ; Yallingup East ; Abbeys ; Metricup West ; Wilyabrup ; Caves Road West ; Carbunup River ; Metricup East ; Harmans ; Cowaramup West ; Ellensbrook ; Cowaramup East ; Central East ; Central West ; Forest Grove ; Karridale; Augusta

Our southerly location, close to Cape Leeuwin, provides ideal growing conditions, allowing our grapes to benefit from slightly cooler weather than the growing areas to the north and also from the breezes blowing in from both the Indian and Southern Oceans. At KarriBindi our aim has always been to produce premium quality wine grapes. From this fruit, our objective is to produce limited quantities of premium estate grown wines.
