On the cliff-stacked coast of Margaret River’s Wilyabrup, the Wildberry Springs vineyard sits open to the ocean on three sides, swaying gently in the cool breezes that drift in from the water. On a map, it looks like the bottom of the world — a far-flung outcrop at Australia’s southwestern corner, nothing in view for thousands of kilometres but the vast, open reaches of the sea. Pristine and unspoilt, Wildberry Springs produces immaculate Chardonnay grapes that reflect Margaret River’s status as a cult producer of this famous varietal — manifested here in voluptuous, stylish form and hand-picked, sustainable fashion by barrier-breaking L.A.S. Vino wunderkind Nic Peterkin.
Expect to find
Sensuous complexity and creamy elegance. An orchard of crisp green apple, juicy melon, and lightly toasted cashew
Turn off the coastal Caves Road onto Wilyabrup Road, and drive until you reach a clearing with a fence to its left. This is the start of the walk to the magnificent, 40-metre-tall Wilyabrup Cliffs; you’ll know you’re in the right spot by the small sign on the other side of the fence. Pro tip: visit at sunset so you get the full effect of their vermilion hue.

With risotto or crispy-skinned salmon
Margaret River’s new-age prodigy

Son of iconic Pierro founder Dr Mike Peterkin (an unconventional winemaker himself), Nic fuses a flair for the adventurous and exploratory with an unbreakable commitment to sustainable cultivation, crafting barrier-breaking vino using fruit from organic and biodynamic plots dotted around the lush, breezy Margaret River.
